Michigan by the Bottle
The founders of Michigan by the Bottle realized that not everyone can make it to Michigan’s admirable wine trails and tours. So MBTB decided to bring Michigan wine straight to Metro Detroit! They choose to focus on high-quality wines produced by their six partner wineries: Chateau Aeronautique, Chateau de Leelanau, Domaine Berrien Cellars, Gill’s Pier Vineyard & Winery, Peninsula Cellars and Sandhill Crane Vineyards. MBTB wanted to offer Michigan wines to both wine tasting beginners and aficionados alike, and they did a great job!
