MBTB’s Shannon will explore a bit of wine psychology during this fun, casual workshop that will push you to expand your palate and abandon your preconceived notions about certain wines. The $15 cost includes several pre-selected wine pours to serve as examples during the presentation. This session will focus on white wines.

    Palate Pushers: White Wines Mini Workshop

    Wednesday, Aug. 16 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

    Open to the public

    "I hate Merlot." "I can't stand Chardonnay!" Every day, we see guests ruling out specific grapes and wine styles based on past experiences. But palates change with time, and not all wines are of equal caliber! The question is: If you didn't know it was Chardonnay in your glass, would you still hate it? MBTB’s Shannon will explore a bit of wine psychology during this fun, casual workshop that will push you to expand your palate and abandon your preconceived notions about certain wines. The $15 cost includes several pre-selected wine pours to serve as examples during the presentation. This session will focus on white wines. (But if you think you hate whites, you'd better be here, because that's the whole point!) No registration; just drop in! (We’re open to the public as usual during this event, with all traditional tasting options available.) FYI: This event also will be held at MBTB Shelby Township on Wednesday, Aug. 2.

Featured Artist

MBTB Tasting Room is home to a long-term gallery exhibit by Michigan artist Stephanie Schlatter. Stephanie, who hails from the Grand Rapids area, describes herself as “a painter of color, with a passion for expressing those things which inspire me.” One of those things is Michigan wine country, which served as the catalyst for Stephanie’s series, “On the Michigan Wine Trail.” The OTMWT works are her vivid depictions of the state’s sweeping vineyard vistas, but Stephanie says it’s more than just an attempt to re-create beautiful scenery.

“It explores the essence of the region’s many seasonal faces,” she explained. “It reveals the hearts of the people who live there, and what happens to them as they inhabit and grow attached to this enchanting place. It captures the magic that I personally found there, that has in turn captured me. My series, like their wine, tells of the people – their journeys, their art, and the relationships they’ve built with the land. The stories are all there on the canvas, like a bottle of wine, waiting for us to uncork it.”

You can see portions of Stephanie’s OTMWT series in person at MBTB Tasting Room, and also purchase originals and/or prints of various sizes on site. Stephanie also will be visiting MBTB Tasting Room to lead wine and art events, so stay tuned for details!
