Private Events

Events at Chateau Grand Traverse

While we love to celebrate with our guests and participate in annual Old Mission Peninsula trail events, we are first and foremost a vineyard and winery. Because we grow, process, and bottle our wines on site, our licensing, along with Peninsula Township laws and guidelines, prevent us from being able to host weddings, rehearsals, parties, corporate meetings, and most large, private events. Our tasting room capacity and patio capacity is 75 total and we are not licensed to serve or provide open alcohol outside of those areas, which unfortunately makes it difficult to find room for such events. If you would like more information or would like to inquire about a private event, please contact Ann Ritzel at (231) 938-6122 or email her at aritzel@cgtwines.com.

Engagements at CGT

Engagements at the winery are very common and we’re always excited to see couples celebrate their love while visiting! While we don’t offer any special engagement packages or plan proposals, we’re happy to help with small table reservations on the patio or to answer questions you may have about where to propose. Many utilize our vineyard overlook deck as the perfect spot to pop the question, however this spot is also the starting point for complimentary tours and a popular stop for visitors while at the winery. We recommend giving us a call at (231) 938-6122 if you’d like to check the tour schedule and see when the best time on a particular day might be for your proposal.

Wedding and Engagement Photography

Like engagements and proposals at the winery, we’re happy to be a beautiful location and backdrop for your wedding or engagement photos, however we would prefer advance notice. We do ask that you please call in advance so we can point you to some of our most picturesque spots, as well as warn you of any large groups, vineyard spraying, or machinery that may be coming through the vineyard that day. For questions and more information, please give us a call.
