The Cheese Shop of Saline opened in Fall 2017. Housed on N Ann Arbor Street in the center of a classic Michigan downtown, the shop has become a quick favorite among the locals. Since opening, the Loomis duo has been serving up quality interpretations of classic sandwiches and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of cheese, wine and small town flavor.

Join us as we sample a selection of wines that could make a great addition to your holiday gathering — from fun bubbles to amazingly complex Chardonnays, soft Côtes du Rhône and full-on Cabernet. We’ll also have some suggestions to make your cheese and meat tray a little different. Try including some Vosges chocolate or Spanish Almond and Honey Turrón. (Better yet, you can pre-order a tray and have us put one together for you!)

Pre-order your wine at the tasting and receive a 10% discount on a mixed case of 12 — or 5% on a mixed half case.
