Owner description: Left Foot Charley is a winery like no other. In lieu of the single estate model, LFC is a collection of grape and apple growers located throughout Northern Michigan dedicated to growing fruit for our wine and cider. Located in the urban setting of the former Traverse City State Hospital campus known as The Village, LFC creates an array of balanced white wine, red wine, and hard cider. Every bottle tells the story of the farm, the vintage and the winemaker's dream of sharing it all with you.

We stumbled upon LFC while browsing around The Village and were SO glad we went there. Their wine selection was good and we were sad that they only had one cider to try because of the poor apple season. While some of the bar tenders tried a bit too much while others didn't seem to care the overall experience was fun. Great history and intrigue and a great tasting! We reccommend Murmur or the Missing Spire....yummy.

The winery is in the middle of the Grand Traverse Commons which gives it an interesting setting, but the wines were just average. The staff was hit or miss as to their interest in the customers.

A fun place, a limited selection of wines. Interesting history. If you can find the place. With a GPS in my car, and another in my hand, we couldn't find it. Had to call and have them direct us as we drove. Wine good tho!

This winery is a great place to pop into for a tasting or a glass.. it is located in the village among a lot of other neat places.. the wine tasting allows you to find your favorite and since my hubby is not a wine drinker..he swears by the spiced hard apple cider!

The history of this location was interesting. The lower part of the bar is made from doors from patient rooms at the mental hospital. Small and cozy and the wine is great. Excellent staff
