Where am I seated for my reservation?
Reservations for Seated Wine Country Experiences on the Deck are seated outdoors on our elevated deck overlooking the vineyard and East Grand Traverse Bay. In most instances, in the case of inclement weather, reservations will be accommodated inside the tasting room. 

What is the Lawn Bar?
The Lawn Bar is an outdoor service area just outside of the tasting room doors that offers seating for guests to relax at while they enjoy their glasses of wine, Frosé, hard cider, and snack items. Reservations are not required. In the summer, relax at a picnic table or Adirondack chair and take part in a game of cornhole. Wine flights and cheese & charcuterie boards are not served in this location. Dogs are allowed as long as they remain leashed and are properly cared for.
