Sip and Savor the Old Mission Peninsula (CANCELED)

  • 11:00 AM9:00 PM

This event has been canceled.

Come explore the Old Mission Peninsula’s rich history, world-class wineries and fine dining. Begin your journey with a self-guided tour of the Mission Point Lighthouse Park. While it no longer guides mariners through West Grand Traverse Bay, Mission Point Lighthouse offers visitors a peek into life around the turn of the century for lighthouse keepers and for others who lived and worked in the area. Next, we’ll be joined by a hop-on guide from the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society as we delve deeper into the peninsula’s agricultural history, with stops to explore the newly renovated Peter Dougherty House and Haserot Beach. Following the tour, enjoy a private three-course luncheon at the Boathouse Restaurant, a fine dining establishment nestled on the shores of Bowers Harbor. We’ll end the day exploring the history of viticulture on the peninsula with a winery tour and wine tasting at Chateau Chantal, a 75-acre estate with world-class wine and hospitality, before returning to Meijer Gardens with a boxed dinner on the road.

Fee includes bus transportation, entrance to the Old Mission Lighthouse Park, guided tour with the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society, private three-course luncheon at Boathouse, winery tour and wine tasting at Chateau Chantal, boxed dinner, and all gratuities. Expect a fair amount of walking, standing and stairs.
