Wine, Birthday Cake And Gifts Mark One Year For Michigan By The Bottle

Posted by – Elizabeth Brennan, Community Development Executive Assistant

Michigan By The Bottle owners Cortney and Shannon Casey are gearing up for their First Birthday Bash – celebrating one year in their new Downtown Auburn Hills location.

The Birthday Bash will be held from 12 pm to 10 pm on Saturday, July 15th and will feature live music all day.  Their partner wineries are generously donating prizes to give away, including discounted bottles of wine and VIP experiences at their wineries.

Enjoy free samples (barkeep’s choice, one per person) and free vanilla or chocolate birthday cake while supplies last!  They’ll also be drawing for plenty of logo swag.

All of their tastings will be on a token system (one pour at a time) that day to expedite service and make sure everyone gets their wine quickly.  Weather permitting, their patio will be open so that guests can enjoy their wine outside, overlooking beautiful Downtown Auburn Hills.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating one year in Downtown Auburn Hills,” said Cortney.  “We would have never found this spot if it weren’t for Shawn Keenan of the City.  We’re so thankful that he pointed us in this direction and showed us this prime location in the heart of Downtown.  We just keep picking up traction as we go, and every day, new people seem to be discovering us.”

Cortney and Shannon say they enjoy the friendly atmosphere Downtown and have begun forming partnerships with the local business like Jo’Angela’ Pizza & Deli Company for their BYOP (Bring Your Own Pizza) events.  Every Wednesday evening, Michigan By The Bottle guests can call Jo’Angela’s to have pizza and salad delivered right to their table while they enjoy their wine.

We wish Michigan By The Bottle a very Happy First Birthday and continued success in Downtown Auburn Hills.
