Welcome to 2 Lads Winery: Bold - Modern - True.
Stand at our tasting bar and take in the beauty of east Grand Traverse Bay while enjoying a flight of our wines as presented by our knowledgeable, witty, and charming tasting room staff. Want something to nosh while you taste? Small bites plates are available, and all wines can be ordered by the glass or half glass.
Travelling with a larger party? We do ask for 48 hours’ advance notice for groups of 10-20 that would like to taste together.
Thirsty for more (knowledge, that is)? Our Private Tour experience explains the what, where, why and how behind the winemaking process, following the path of the grape from the vineyard to the bottle. We’ll then give that newfound knowledge some context by giving you an in-depth private tasting of our wines, paired elegantly with specially chosen small bites. Cost is $40/person; expect the tour to last 90 minutes.
Looking to get right to the wine? Our Private Tasting takes you through a guided flight of 5 wines with intelligently chosen food pairings in a private, bucolic Northern Michigan setting. Your host will expertly guide you through the nuances of flavor and aroma as you enjoy the bounty of our vineyard. Cost is $25/person; expect your tasting to last 1 hour.
Our private experiences are by appointment only, and are currently offered Tuesday – Friday (Saturdays are available to 2 Lads Wine Club members). Certain days may be unavailable due to winery events. Call us at 231.223.7722 to reserve your time!
