Simply Wine (Center Street Cellar) in Northville, MI is my favorite wine shop!
They have a perfect-size selection of delicious wines.
What do I mean by a “perfect-sized selection”? Well – it’s perfect! Not too many choices to overwhelm, and not too few to make you wish there were more.
They have hand-picked the best of the best.
And, fortunate for the budget-conscious: They have a wide selection of wines under $20 and many $15 bottles. (Of course, the wine snob will be satisfied with their premium, expensive wines — but they don’t “push” those on you.)
I love their wine tasting events.
When you’re on their email list, you get notified a few weeks in advance of the opportunities to come in and taste wines from a particular vineyard, winery or distributor. (Often, you get to meet the winery owners — who tell their stories, and give background on their winery and all the wine you’re tasting.) It’s a lot of fun.
And, of course — you can taste wine anytime.
Simply Wine has a self-serve wine dispenser (like a vending machine that pours wine) that is stocked with a wide assortment of the wines that are available in the store. So, if you want to taste the wine you’re considering buying, there’s a good chance it’s available in the wine tasting machines. Or, if you just want to have a little wine tasting party, then you may want to bring a friend or two, and sit down at their oak-barrel tables for a nice early evening of wine tasting.
The Wine club is also great.
