Why We RecommendBonobo Winery was founded by brothers and longtime Traverse City natives—Carter and Todd Oosterhouse. As brothers, Todd and Carter are united by many innate qualities: determination, creativity, thoroughness, and imagination. They intend to make world-class wines but with a business model inspired by the close harmony of traditions, philosophies and ecological integrity of the region. They will employ local residents and utilize local resources to create an ethereal experience that captivates all five senses with everything representative of Traverse City.
With a commitment to the community, and to the beauty, charm and sanctuary of Traverse City area, these brothers and their families intend to provide exceptional wines.
