On Friday, June 21st, the evening before the 5th annual Traverse City Wine & Art Festival, we will add our all-new Winemakers Party at the festival grounds at the Village at Grand Traverse Commons.
The Winemakers Party will be from 6-9 PM and will feature many of our Festival winemakers mingling with attendees as they each offer tastes or glasses of a single wine for your enjoyment.
As a perfect accompaniment, chefs from seven of the finest restaurants in Leelanau, Old Mission and Traverse City will each present a single small plate designed to perfectly pair with our wines.
For just $50 a limited number of attendees will receive 8 wine tasting tickets and 3 small plate tickets.
Click here to get your tickets before they’re gone, either for the party alone or get the Wine Festival Weekend Pass to enjoy the party and Saturday’s festival!
