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.

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, please complete the Virtual House Party request webform. 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.
