We have partnered with Taste the Local Difference® to make all our wine dinners a Certified Local Food Event! This means, at least 20% of the food at the dinners must be locally sourced from Michigan farms and businesses. We are proud to announce that we have exceeded the 20% goal by using 54% local ingredients from Michigan farms and specialty producers each week.
