Tune in to ABC’s ‘The Chew” at 1pm this Tuesday, June 24th and get a sneak peak of Traverse City native, HGTV celebrity and Bonobo Winery founder, Carter Oosterhouse as he shares wines from the 2012 vintage with the hosts (Northern Michigan loving-Mario Batalli is one of the esteemed hosts) of ‘The Chew”. Carter and brother Todd Oosterhouse are set to open Bonobo Winery late summer 2014. Bonobo Winery will be the ninth winery on the Old Mission Peninsula and plans to offer one-of-a-kind wine experiences to all who visit.
Todd Oosterhouse and Heather Fortin of Bonobo Winery at the Michigan Wine Conference in February.

The wine featured on the The Chew really sparked my interest. Will the wine be available for sale in California?
