Explore the great wine regions of the world with sommelier Nate Redner. Each evening aboard the Manitou we will discuss the wine making histories and taste the varietals of different countries. Dinners will feature paired wines chosen by Nate as a perfect complement to our meals.

Nate was born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI, and spent summers on Lake Charlevoix while cooking at Monte Bianco and Bay Harbor Yacht Club, where he discovered his passion for wine. He went to school at Michigan State University and studied Hospitality Business.

Traverse City, Michigan
Traverse City calls itself the Cherry Capital of the World. Situated on Grand Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan, on the northwest coast of Michigan's lower peninsula, Traverse City is the 2nd most popular tourist destination in the state (after Mackinaw City). In addition to cherries, the surrounding countryside produces grapes, and is one of the midwest's centers of wine production. Freshwater beaches, a mild summer climate, golf resorts, the nearby Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and thousands of square miles of surrounding forests make Traverse City a great destination area.

Sailing Grand Traverse Bay & Lake Michigan
A wealth of islands, bays, anchorages and coastal villages await you. Visit lighthouses, or the historic fishing village of St. James on Beaver Island. Hike on the remote Manitou Islands, or Power Island. Go beachcombing at Cathead Bay. Wind & weather will determine your course and where you anchor.
