Spring or summer trip to one of Michigans winery areas.

  • I thought of this tonight, and wondered what the group thought of it. How about an extended weekend in the spring or summer to the Traverse area, or the Lake Michigan Shore area. Here is what I"m thining... maybe 4 days, 8-12 vineyards, some nice dinners and a fun time. It would be a planned out vacation around wineries, which I wanted to put it a bit out there timing wise. Maybe we can get a block of rooms, a bus so we wouldn't have to worry about driving, and really dive in. Since this would need a bit of coordination and planning, We should probably have a couple of people working on this. If there seems to be enough interest, say over 10, I'd volunteer to start planning if I could get a couple of helpers.

    You can always find hotels. Traverse has the best wine tours

  • JANE

    If we are going to traverse city this summer the hotels are already filling up fast. Another closer alternative is southwestern Michigan near paw paw.

    There are several wineries in the Jackson, MI area. I believe they are part of the Pioneer Trail; among them are Sandhill Crane vineyard and Chateau Aeronautique winery.

    Hi everyone. My husband and I are wine lovers from Rochester. We own a tour company. We blocked out 16 lake view rooms in Traverse for the weekend of June 14th for a wine tour. Please join us!

      Shelley, is this something you are organizing on your own, or will this be a proper meetup?

      This is on our own. Not a meetup.

    I'm new to this group but it seems like this event is not organized. Meg I thought was the organizer. How does this all come together? I have my own meetup group "Fun Lovers of Travel and Local Events" and I set limits on the numbers and block rooms that will accommodate everyone.

    Sounds fun. Been to some around Traverse. Glen Arbor had some good wineries. Worst one is owed by Madonna's family. Wine is vile. Cider is big up there as well.
    There is a casino, art shows and Sleeping Bear dunes for those who like to hike.

    I found some motor coaches but they depart from areas like St. Joseph and other parts of SW Michigan. But there also is a Festival of the Sun event next month in Lansing that might be cool. www.festivalofthesun.com.

    On June 18th, I'm planning with a couple friends to attend the 6th Annual Lake Michigan Shore Wine Festival at Weko Beach. I can check some sites and see if there is group transportation from this area. If not, perhaps a few folks might want to just go. Maybe carpool or something. http://www.lakemichiganshorewinetrail.com/

    I visited Two Lads last summer...its a very cool place. It's just outside of Traverse City I think....Mission point or something?? It's perched up on a big hill with views of Grand Traverse Bay, gorgeous.
