  • Virtual Event

    Amazing Auxerrois with Bel Lago and Wyncroft

    Monday, Sept. 21 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

    SPACES AVAILABLE: FREE pre-registration required! Click here to register for tickets online.

    Auxerrois — a relative of Chardonnay — is a well-known grape in the Alsace region of France, but here in Michigan, it's a bit of a mystery for most wine lovers!

    Learn all about this great grape and the wines produced from it during our first-ever DOUBLE winemaker session, featuring Wyncroft/Marland's Jim Lester and Bel Lago Winery's Charlie Edson and moderated by MBTB's Shannon and Cortney Casey.

    We'll be tasting through both winemakers' interpretations of Auxerrois grown in the same vineyard (Bel Lago's Moreno Vineyard) as we discuss the characteristics of Auxerrois, the winemakers' approach to the grape, growing details and more. This is a rare opportunity to hear from two winemakers in a single session in the comfort of your own home!

    Link will be sent to registered participants no later than the morning of the event. Only one registration needed per household. You're welcome to watch with friends, family, etc.!

    Registration is FREE and open to the first 90 registrants, but purchase of one or more of the bottles is highly encouraged to get the most out of your session! If after registering you realize you can no longer attend, we kindly ask that you remove your registration to allow space for others to participate.

    Event featured wines: Wyncroft 2019 Moreno Vineyard Auxerrois (available at MBTB Auburn Hills only, $25); Bel Lago 2017 Moreno Block Auxerrois (available at MBTB Royal Oak only, $16).

    Additional wines to expand your Auxerrois horizons: Bel Lago NV Sparkling Auxerrois (available at MBTB Royal Oak only, $22), Bel Lago 2017 Moreno Reserve Auxerrois (available at MBTB Royal Oak only, $16).

Even after the end of quarantine, we're offering our Virtual House Party service via MBTB Tasting Rooms and Blue Skies Brewery-Auburn Hills, bringing wine and/or beer tastings directly into your living room via Zoom!

    Here's how it works: You pick the date and time (subject to availability) and one of our trusty MBTB or BSB team members will arrange your own personalized wine or beer tasting. It can be one-on-one or with up to 98 of your friends (appropriately socially distanced, of course, or they can dial into Zoom separately). You can choose the wines/beers from our stash, or you can leave it to us. No minimum wine/beer purchased is required beyond the session fee, so you're welcome to split bottles between friends, each get your own, whatever you like. Your dedicated host will lead you through the wine and beers, answer your questions, etc. Great for our regulars who miss hanging out, bachelorette parties, birthday parties, family get-togethers, block parties, etc.

    Cost per 1-hour session (does not include wine/beer):
    - $100 for general public
    - $75 for MBTB Sipper Club members
    - $50 for BSB Mile High Club members
    + $25 per extra half-hour desired

    To request a Virtual House Party, email tasting@michiganbythebottle.com or info@blueskiesauburn.com with the following information:
    - Name
    - Cell phone number
    - Wine tasting, beer tasting or both?
    - Date/time requested for event
    - General info about your event (How many people are you anticipating? Is it for a special occasion? Is there anything in particular you'd like us to focus on?)
    - Whether you're a Sipper Club member (MBTB) or Mile High Club member (BSB)
    We'll get back to you ASAP to discuss your event and get everything planned.

    And now for the fine print …
    - Due to restrictions associated with our licensing, we are (sadly) not able to deliver alcohol to you. Wine or beer will need to be picked up at one of our locations.
    - All attendees must be age 21 or older.

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.
