Northern Natural Cider House and Winery
Northern Natural Cider House and Winery Review
A testament to Traverse City's growing artisanal-beverage production, this cider house–and-winery's downtown tasting room opened in 2013. Its ciders and wines are made at Northern Natural Winery in nearby Kaleva, with bottles and growlers for sale, along with cherry-juice concentrate, apple cider, and apple juice made at the farm. Samples (including Riesling and Chardonnay), plus cocktails made from those wines, are also available paired with sandwiches and pizzas flaunting local or regional ingredients. The tasting room also functions as a gourmet-foods deli, selling locally made jams and cheeses. Live music is hosted on Monday and Wednesday through Friday nights.
