The Vineyards

Grown exclusively on the 45th parallel

At Mari Vineyards, all of our wines come from some of the best vineyard locations on Traverse City’s Old Mission Peninsula. Each location was specially cultivated to produce grapes for our wines. Starting from a small vineyard to grow our flagship wine Row 7, we have expanded to over 60 acres of vineyards exclusively on Old Mission Peninsula.

One of the most revolutionizing features of our vineyards comes from our Nellaserra growing technique that allows for the ripest grapes possible when creating our wines. By setting up temporary greenhouses or “hoop-houses” over select rows of our vineyards, we are able to add approximately four weeks to the growth and development of our grapes. This leads to well ripened grapes that are able to preserve their refreshing acidity. You can learn more about our Nellaserra wines and purchase them through our website by visiting our Nellaserra page.
