Overview
More
Left Foot Charley is a winery like no other. In lieu of the single estate model, LFC is a collection of grape and apple growers located throughout Northern Michigan dedicated to growing fruit for our wine and cider. Located in the urban setting of the former Traverse City State Hospital campus known as The Village, LFC creates an array of balanced white wine, red wine, and hard cider. Every bottle tells the story of the farm, the vintage and the winemaker's dream of sharing it all with you.

We love this place! Great wines and great snacks! Really love the location! My wife and Son and dog (Ruger) stopped by and had a tasting and a couple of glasses of wine. We also had some Lunch from Spanglish restaurant right beside. Excellent!

Finish your Flight with the Cinnamon Cider and you'll come back for a whole glass! I'm not a hard cider fan until now - this stuff is really good - we brought home a big box.

We stopped here as part of a self made wine tour of the Traverse City area. The staff is awesome and very helpful. We had a great flight of wine tasting and also got some small plates to share. I'm not normally a cider person,...More

We stopped in to do a wine tasting and had a great time! The wines were very enjoyable and the Cinnamon Girl Cider (the only one we tried) was delicious. The Roots and Rock red blend was my favorite, but I also enjoyed the whites....More

Try the Roots & Rock red wine! It's a terrific dry blend. Despite the rainy weather, we managed to have some of their food including a great whitefish pate and a peppadew cheese & cracker combo and ALSO bring over some goodies from Spanglish. A...More

Left Foot Charley Winery is tucked back in the former Traverse City State Hospital. First, it is great to see what became of the magnificent old hospital - rather than it just being torn down. Charley presents an array of solid blend wines and ciders....More

We love stopping here when we arrive in T.C. The Commons in general is fun because it is off of the beaten path. The wines and ciders are delicious. You must try the the Cinnamon Girl!!

Two of our party did a wine tasting, and two of us selected ciders. Both the Cinnamon Girl and the Cunning Ham were excellent.

After our historical tour at Village at Grand Traverse, we walked across the street to taste some wine. The wine was good and the staff was enjoyable to be around. The staff obviously enjoyed working there and helped sell the wine.

The ambiance was very nice and the service personnel also quite friendly. We decided to try a flight to get a feel for the wines but frankly we could not find a wine which tasted good enough to purchase a full glass.

While there's food, this is more like a brew pub than a restaurant. Limited menu but a very helpful staff who will point you in the right direction for pairing ciders with what they have in their menu.
