Wine Wednesday Date Night

Yesterday was certainly a Wine Wednesday!

The boyfriend and I visited Michigan By The Bottle Tasting Room at their new location in Royal Oak last night to do a wine tasting. I’ve been to their original location in Shelby Township but the new location is much closer to home!

The tasting room is something pretty unique to the area, and they only serve Michigan wines, snacks, and products. The atmosphere is clean and calming, and the staff members were very friendly and knowledgeable on the wines. We decided to each do a Full Flight, which included 5 (generous) wine samples, along with a small plate of cheese and chocolate.

We were provided with a long list of wines to choose from, and circles our selections. I tend to drink red wines, so I tried to choose a variety of wines for my flight. There was not one that I didn’t like!



We love snacks!

After our wine samples and snacks, we headed a few miles down the road to one of our favorite little restaurants for dinner- Vinsetta Garage. They are famous for their burgers, but my favorite dish is the baby kale salad with salmon. The dressing, the seasoning on the salmon, and the crunchy onions are just amazing!


Nothing like a fun weeknight date night to spice up the week!

Wine Wednesday!

Happy hump day!

Maybe not every Wednesday, but at least a couple of times a month I’d like to spend Wednesday’s talking about wine! Please note: I am a complete amateur and will not be offering professional grade wine advice, but I love to try different wines and compare them! So let’s get to it.

This week I’ve been drinking Bogle Vineyards Cabernet.


My boyfriend discovered this wine at a restaurant a few weeks ago, and we’ve been buying it ever since! It’s perfect for evenings at home, as it’s fairly inexpensive and pretty easy to find. My boyfriend initially picked it up at a local wine store, but we’ve since found it at several grocery stores.

This Cabernet is on the sweeter side for a cab and goes down smoooooth!

My wine and my dirty kitchen counters... only the best quality pictures for you guys!

We love this one and plan on trying more from Bogle Vineyards in the near future! Maybe for Thanksgiving?

What kind of wine are you drinking this week?
