It might just be the perfect time to see Old Mission Peninsula. August is beautiful, warm, and there’s plenty to do! 

It’s easy to mix a wine or beer tour into your visit to Traverse City. Whether you’re coming in from places elsewhere, or perhaps enjoying a ‘stay-cation’ and sticking close to home, August is prime time to enjoy the region. Love wine? Love beer? Love sun, water, and incredible views? The eighth month has it all.

Traverse City’s two biggest festivals, the Cherry Festival and Traverse City Film Festival, are in the books for the summer. That’s no reason to tuck yourself away, though! August offers even better weather than July, with just a bit less traffic, too. The lines are often a bit shorter, the gorgeous tasting rooms a bit more spacious, and the events smaller and more intimate.

Two Peninsulas, Countless Adventures

We’re offering plenty of different ways to enjoy the region, including private and join-in tours highlighting local wineries, breweries, and even distilleries. Our drivers are also great resources for great restaurants or places to see. We even offer limo services for local events like the famous Small Plates dinner, hosted by Leelanau Peninsula wineries.

Old Mission Peninsula is a convenient spot for our tours. It’s just minutes from most hotels and resorts in Traverse City. Plus, the beautiful landscapes are why we put it in our name! This time of the year, our tours wind through some of the most wonderful places around, and always with a cool Lake Michigan breeze off either west or east Grand Traverse Bay to keep us comfortable. It’s as relaxing as it gets!

It’s not too late to fit in a well-deserved day in the vines! Grab your friends, call the family, or get out of the office and let us take care of all the details for a great afternoon or evening to celebrate wine, sunshine, and incredible company. August is just beginning and so is your Up North adventure with Old Mission Wine Tours! Call today, let’s go!
