Cicero famously said “if you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”  At Whistle Stop, we think that if you have a garden and a library, and a few good bottles of wine, you have everything you need.   With that in mind, we offer a carefully selected variety of delicious domestic and international wines for you to choose from.  

At Whistle Stop you will find a range of options and prices in key varietals, including domestic and international carbernet sauvignons, red blends, pinot noirs, syrahs, chardonnays, sauvignon blancs, rieslings, roses, and sparkling wines.  You will also find other favorite varieties from the US, France, Italy, Germany, Argentina and New Zealand.   Our goal is to offer wines that represent good value regardless of price.  We offer a limited selection of wines from Michigan – only wines we think compare favorably with counterparts from more established wine growing regions. 

Whether you are looking to share a few bottles with friends and family during a long weekend at the beach, looking for the perfect accompaniment to your favorite dish, or looking for a hostess gift you know will be appreciated, stop by and check out our changing wine selection today.
