Our third stop on our day trip of wine tasting! Beautiful scenery as you drive up. The wine pourer was entertaining and knowledgeable! It was a Saturday in August so it was very crowded and busy. Our only suggestion go mid week earlier in the day or visit in the shoulder season if you don't want to deal with crowds.

Immediately greeted and waited on by knowledgeable staff. All white sparkly wines which are not my favorite but still a fun experience! After 2 complimentary pours we paid 7.00 for 2 four ounce pours & cheese/crackers.

I was blown away with how much I liked these sparkling Michigan wines. From the rustic charm of the interior to the lush backyard Vineyard, this place was magic. Friendly staff, great snack plates and plenty of seating. I thought I was in Napa!

One of the happier tasting places. Staff was great and enjoyable, loved the food and sitting on the patio overlooking the vineyards. Will visit again when in the area.

The sparkling wines are fantastic & the special attention during wine tasting flights was terrific. Loved the little food plate accompaniments! Bought a bunch of wines, too. Would like to see some structural improvements to make the experience a bit more polished. I'll be back!

One of the best winery experiences in Northern Michigan. Great sparkling wines with a super laid back vibe. After you get your complimentary tastings spring for a couple of glasses. Friendly staff, welcoming place, best view! They even have snacks.

Staff: raucous & charming. Wine: plenty of effervescent delights. 2 sparkling rosés (Sex & Grace) an outlier for the region. Food: You'll want to take the cherry jalepeño spread home with you- and eat it on the car ride home!

From extra dry to very sweet and everything in between. This place has all the sparkling wine you could want. You get 2 complementary tastings. They offer a couple decent spreads to enjoy also. I remember not being crazy about this place 5 years ago. But it was a great stop on this trip.

We recently brought our bikes to Suttons Bay to check out several wineries, L Mawby was our first stop, they serve sparkling wines, we are usually not a big fan of the bubbly but we were pleasantly surprised. You get two comp pours then can try a flight if you'd like. For $9 we got two wines and and some... More
