Sign me up for bottomless food and drinks any day! I love eating and I love drinking so I was thrilled to head to the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi to sample wine, but didn’t fully know what to expect. When I got there, I was blown away.
I was greeted at the door with a wine glass, a plate, and numerous drink tickets. With those tools in hand, I was on my way…traveling from table to table, indulging in all the vendors had to offer…and boy, did they have a lot to offer!
I expected a variety of wines, but there were so many wine brands represented, I didn’t even know where to start! There were some Michigan Wineries and some national brands. I was excited to try varieties from Traverse City and Tecumseh first. A Sweet Harvest Apple White Wine was the first to touch my taste buds. It was delicious and unique because it was not made from grapes! Then, I sampled a Riesling which was also sweet and delicious!
After sampling some local varieties, I moved on to a well-known brand of wine and asked for a full pour of my favorite new champagne. Barefoot makes the most delicious Moscato Champagne – you all need to try it! It’s soooooo good!
After 3 glasses, I filled up on fresh fruit, crackers, and cheese and continued to explore. There were food vendors, crafts, jewelry, and local businesses set up at various booth. I lost track of time checking out everything they had to offer at their various stations.
When I had made a full circle I finished up at the live auction hosted by CW50 and CBS Detroit’s morning news anchor, Syma Chowdhry. I stuck around and listened to her entertaining auctioneering and grazed at the Melting Pot booth (conveniently located right next to the auction stage so I could make multiple trips).
What a cool event! I sure ate and drank well…I’ll be sure to go back next year!
I’ll keep it fabulous and keep you in the loop!
