You simply cannot produce great wine from mediocre grapes. Equally important to wine quality is a fully equipped winery facility and a skilled winemaker able to achieve the best from a particular vintage.
We have been fortunate to have Bernd Croissant as our winemaker since 1993. Bernd’s excellent intuition and extensive winemaking experience has allowed Chateau Grand Traverse to produce wines that consistently garner international awards and impress even the most discerning palette.
From our hand-tended estate-grown vines to gentle grape presses, temperature-controlled stainless steel fermenting tanks, and quality oak cooperage, all of our wines are made under close winemaker supervision to assure consistency and flavor.
