Bringing Michigan wines closer to home
MBTB Tasting Room unites the founders of MichiganByTheBottle.com with six Michigan wineries to bring a taste of the state's far-flung wine trails to metro Detroit. Our focus is on high-quality wines produced by our six partner wineries – Chateau Aeronautique, Chateau de Leelanau, Domaine Berrien Cellars, Gill's Pier Vineyard & Winery, Peninsula Cellars and Sandhill Crane Vineyards – using their estate-grown and/or locally sourced grapes. We aim to make wine fun and accessible to all, from the causal consumer to the avid aficionado, from seasoned travelers of Michigan's wine trails to those experiencing what the state has to offer for the very first time.
With representation from all four of Michigan's major wine trails, MBTB Tasting Room offers a close-to-home way to experience wine from throughout the state in a warm, welcoming environment – not an impersonal bar or a sterile supermarket aisle. Our tastes come in flights of varying sizes, allowing our guests to take their time as they find new favorites and rediscover existing ones. Because we suspect you'll often be sipping wine with food at home, our larger tasting flights come with cheese and chocolate to enhance the experience. We're proud to further support the state by incorporating products from Michigan-based producers like Grassfields Cheese, Leelanau Cheese, Mindo Chocolate Makers and Detroit Chocolat. And because we want to ensure our visitors are tasting the grapes, not the glass, we serve all of our flights in full-size, high-quality Riedel stemware.
