2 Lads Winery is a small production facility located on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, Michigan. We currently have 23 acres of established vineyards. We specialize in cool climate dry red and sparkling wines and have small runs of white wines to round out the lot. Sustainably farming our land is paramount to the health of our soil, vines and grapes at 2 Lads Winery. Come taste the difference.

This modern winery boasts excellent Chardonnays, sparkling wines & robust reds. They offer 5 tastings for $7, though their reserve wines cost 2 tastings. We recommend the Sparkling Pinot Grigio, 2016 Chardonnay, and 2016 Cabernet Franc. Enjoy!
