Harkening back to the days of yore when I managed the largest wine shop in the State of Michigan and the 2nd largest in the Midwest: Champane’s Wine Cellars. The store at any one time would house nearly 10,000 different bottles of wine from every corner of the globe. It became a destination for wines lovers not only from the local area but statewide and out of state fans as well. So many loyal customers became great friends, it was a dream job that provided so many great memories. The store captured every major award for Best Wine Shop, Best Selection and most proud of all Best Customer Service. The photo’s don’t fully give you scale of how huge the store actually was, but if you were a customer, you spent countless hours shopping and chatting about our favorite subject, wine!
