About the Tour at Bowers Harbor Vineyards

The Vineyard Tours start with a glass of Traditional Méthode Champenoise Sparkling Wine. While sipping your bubbly, we will give you a brief overview of the Winery, Tasting Room and Vineyard History.  We then will walk you through two or more of our estate vineyards explaining the grape varietals and the stage of growth at that moment in time. Your wine guide will also tell you a brief history of the BHV vineyard blocks, give explanations about our unique wine-growing conditions, and educate you with fun and perhaps to some, exciting, viticulture and micro climate trivia.  Your tour will end in our Langley Vineyard with samples of wine and delicious cheeses and gourmet food pairings.  These tours are a fantastic way to expand your knowledge of Michigan wine growing, enjoy a delicious wine flight, and have a special experience to remember! Taste, Learn, Enjoy!
