A FAMILY TRADITION
Chateau Grand Traverse is a world-class winery located on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, Michigan. At the core it is a family-owned and operated winery with a colorful and proud winemaking tradition. As 2nd generation producers, we are afforded the opportunity to carry forward the winemaking vision and maverick spirit that our founder set forth 41 years ago. It’s quite humbling to recognize that our combined efforts, decisions making and personalities are reflected in each hand-crafted bottle we produce…yes, it’s personal!
As growers of wine, we relish the fact that we are farmers first and make our living directly from the soil of our Michigan home. As winemakers, we can express the fruit of our labors in a regionally unique wine product. As committed stewards of the land, we also recognize the importance of the environment and our responsibility to provide for future generations. It’s more than just a business, it’s a commitment and lifestyle that we proudly live.
It’s been said that grapes like to grow where people like to live. The Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City is one of those special places in this world that affords us incredible natural beauty, abundant water and the ideal conditions for producing world-class wines. This is the place we are lucky to make our livelihoods, bring up our families, and raise a glass in thanks.
From our family to yours,
