This place probably had the best view of all of the wineries we visited on the Mission Peninsula, but we couldn't sit outside and we had to stand at the bar for our tasting....I think they should consider putting some outdoor furniture.More

Thank you for the suggestion! We'd love to put outdoor seating in, but with township and state laws, and limited space onsite right now, we don't have a good way to do it. It might be something we do in the future though, so stop...More

I love this place...our second time back, same gentlemen pouring for us. I love the fact that if you buy something they give you the $5 for your tasting back - that's how they all should be.

Stunning views of East Traverse Bay from this winery tasting room. The building is a very modern style that I personally don't think jives with the surrounding, but that is my opinion. Wine tasting, of course is fun, and tasty! A nice little retail area...More

This was our first winery of the day. The wines were pretty good and the staff very knowledgeable. We like the fat that the grapes are grown locally.

I did not expect a winery in Michigan. Isn't it too cold there? I was so wrong! The 2 Lads winery is a modern operation with wines that you have to taste and take home with you! And we did!
