    Premium Pours

    Friday, Jan. 24 - Saturday, Jan. 25

    Open to the public

    On Fridays and Saturdays, we're offering Big Pours of select rotating off-menu premium wines, chosen by MBTB Owner Shannon Casey! These wines are available ONLY in Big Pours or for take-home bottle purchase, not in flights. Premium Pours are not eligible for Sipper Club $8 Big Pour promo. Ask our team about this weekend's Premium Pours!

    MBTB Shelby Township: Chateau Aeronautique 2013 Cabernet Franc Reserve
    Tasting Notes: Powerful aromatics, with aromas of black cherry, vanilla and violet on the nose. On the palate, notes of cocoa powder, sage and other savory herbs. Strong depth of flavor, with fine tannins. Bold and elegant at the same time.
    Big Pour: $18, including a $2 bottle credit toward take-home wine
    Take home bottle: $70

    MBTB Royal Oak: Verterra Winery 2016 Vintner's Select Reserve Red
    Tasting Notes: Wine uses select barrels of Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the Reserve Red production. Spiced cherry with the stems, berry, and savory hit you in the nose followed by red currant, cherry and the feel of graphite on the palate. Additional structure and body is gained by the addition of small percentage of Malbec. This has a very robust structure with medium tannins and is definitely age worthy — if you can let it sit in a cellar once you taste it.
    Big Pour: $16, including a $2 bottle credit toward take-home wine
    Take home bottle: $59

    MBTB Auburn Hills: Brys Estate 2017 Signature Red
    Tasting Notes: This elegant and harmonious full-bodied red wine showcases synergized layers of vanilla, berries, licorice, chocolate and soft tannins. A soft underlayer of coffee beans marries in with the other beautiful layers.
    Big Pour: $16, including a $2 bottle credit toward take-home wine
    Take home bottle: $55

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.
