While the Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula may seem off the beaten path, they are actually very accessible and start at just four miles from the center of downtown Traverse City. The wineries gladly welcome larger groups with some advanced notice and can accommodate a variety of transportation. Though the wineries do not provide guest transport, Traverse City Tourism offers a list of wine tour & transportation companies that service Old Mission Peninsula - ranging from fully-hosted educational wine tours to limousine service to local cabs. Just be sure to call these companies ahead so appropriate accommodations can be made.
A few helpful questions to consider when researching the right tour or transporation company for you:
1. Are the tasting fees included in the tour/shuttle fee? (generally $5-$10 per flight at each winery)
2. Does the company make the winery reservations for you or do you need to call the wineries yourself?
3. Is the company licensed with the Michigan Department of Transportation?
