The best wines are the ones we drink with friends
Tasting and Tours.
At Chateau Grand Traverse, we welcome groups of all sizes.
Wine tastings at CGT are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, and no reservations are required, however if you have a group of six or more, a courtesy call is appreciated. We offer tastings for $5 per person, with a $3 purchase credit towards a wine bottle purchase. For more information on tastings, click here.
We offer complimentary tours of the Chateau Grand Traverse grounds and winemaking facility, taking you through the winemaking process from harvest to bottling. Tours average 30 minutes and reservations are not necessary. Simply arrive in the tasting room about 10 minutes before a scheduled tour and a staff member will announce when the group will leave and where to meet. For more information on tours and seasonal tour schedules, click here.
We’re happy to accommodate your group for a private tour and tasting, however we do ask for one-week notice for scheduling purposes. 50% deposit is required at the time of booking. Deposits are refundable up to 24 hours prior to reservation, less a $10 processing fee. Groups more than 15 minutes late may forfeit reservation.
