After hearing about how this winery is one of the most medaled wineries in the north, I had to try it out.

The winery/brewery has indoor and outdoor seating. My friend and I were lucky enough to score the only mosaic table inside the winery – super unique and interesting. We happily ordered a flight each, along with something to eat. They offer a great menu of small plates and appetizers that pair well with wine and beer.

We ordered the Farmers Board which included a spread of thinly sliced prosciutto, hard salami, pepperoni, pickled vegetables, whole grain mustard, and assorted cheeses served with a French baguette. Other menu options include soft pretzel bites, hummus, dips, salami/cheese plate, and an Italian wrap. The summer menu has even more options.

The more wineries I visit, the more knowledgeable I become. And, it becomes easier to compare and decide what are my favorites. The winery offers a fantastic Frontenac Gris wine, and I also truly enjoyed the strawberry rhubarb fruit wine which is something I would never have given a second thought to since it’s on the sweeter side, but it was really good. The full wine collection includes dry white wines, dry red wines, sparkling wines, semi-dry wines, sweet wines, fruit wines, and hard cider.

You can purchase many of their items on their online store, as well as a wine club that will get vintner and tasting room manager selected wines delivered to your door every April and November.

The property offers a wedding setup on the grounds as well with a paver walkway entrance, a gazebo, seating and a small pond.

Overall, Mackinaw Trail Winery & Brewery ranks up there as one of my favorite wineries in Petoskey and all of Northern Michigan. It was definitely one of the priciest, but worth it.
