The foundations of Hawthorne Vineyards were formed by a passion for wine and desire to share its myriad virtues. The integration of wine as a way to enjoy life is the cornerstone principle at Hawthorne Vineyards.
Founders Bruce and Cathleen Hawthorne have familial ties to Northern Michigan dating back to the 1800s when Cathleen's family settled in Benzie County. Spurred by Cathleen's passion for gardening and agriculture, the couple acted on their desire to enter the wine industry, purchasing an 80 acre farm on Old Mission Peninsula that was partially planted to grapevines, cherries, and plums. Dedicated to continuing the preservation of agriculture, the Hawthornes have planted additional vinifera species grapevines to total 26 acres with future plantings in the works.
Hawthorne Vineyards is a pristine vineyard and tasting room destination just four miles from Traverse City on Old Mission Peninsula. The 80-acre site is nestled into a ridge above Peninsula Drive with postcard views of East and West Grand Traverse Bays. Handcrafted wines are created from the vineyard's acreage of Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Lemberger, Gamay, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. Surrounding traffic and disruptions vanish as guests make their way up the winding private drive to the most peaceful and serene vineyard destination on Old Mission.
The tasting room is modest in size to provide an intimate connection with the environment. An outdoor patio area will provide a relaxing environment with stunning bay views and cozy outdoor fireplace.
Open seasonally, Hawthorne Vineyards will provide a new and special experience for those coming to enjoy wine and hospitality. We're looking forward to your visit!
