    Love to bake (and eat cookies)? Join us for our third annual Holiday Cookie Exchange! Each attendee will bring four dozen of their own homemade specialty cookie to share, then collect cookies from each of their fellow participants. Come with your friends and/or make new ones as you sip wine, swap sweets and enjoy some pre-holiday relaxation. At the end, you'll head home with four dozen assorted cookies to enjoy yourself, gift to friends and/or serve at your holiday gatherings! Registration is $15 and includes the Big Pour of your choice, a $5 credit toward take-home wine purchases and a slot in the Holiday Cookie Exchange. Doors open at 12 p.m.; exchange begins promptly at 12:30 p.m.

    Please be sure to bring:
    • 4 dozen of one type of cookie (MUST be homemade)
    • A recipe card outlining all of the ingredients used
    • A container for collecting your cookie haul
    • Valid photo identification (non-expired state-issued ID, driver's license or passport) for proof of age — even if you think you look well over 21!

    PLEASE NOTE: The success of this event hinges on having the proper amount of cookies to exchange. If you find that you cannot attend, we kindly ask that you find someone to take your spot. Thank you in advance!

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.
