Brut Detroit Founding Sommelier
Mike is a Sommelier and currently serves as the Assistant Wine Team Leader for Plum Market in their Ann Arbor West location. Over the past decade he has developed his passion and knowledge for wine through research, classes with local wine experts, travel throughout France, Italy, Australia and China and years and years of wine tastings. Mike's wine work experience includes time as a Beverage Director for Vinology in Ann Arbor and as a Wine Sales Representative in and around Metro Detroit for Woodberry Wine.
He believes that as popular as wine has become, it is still underappreciated with the majority of people. Paired properly, wine can enhance food and food can enhance wine changing a "meal' to an experience. Mike believes in the adage -- "A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine."
