We are excited to announce that we are kicking off our 2018 Wine Dinner Series with Cain Vineyard and Winery. Unavailable for purchase in Michigan for the last five years, Cain has reentered the market and their winery rep will be joining us on Wednesday, January 31st for a night of red wine and rich meats. Represented by Carmela Foods, Inc, a high-end food supplier located in Detroit, Carmela is the purveyor of specialty items such as our dry aged and Waygu beef. Joining together, our chefs have created a mouthwatering five-course menu featuring the best Carmela has to offer and paired to perfection with Cain Vineyard’s reds. Limited seating, tickets are $80/person and RSVP only. Due to the nature of the menu and wines we ask that to RSVP you call the Wine Room and pay at time of reservation to hold your seat: (231) 946-3300 ext 15.
