How did Wine Social come about? Our story starts here.

One day over a glass of wine

Partners in Wine

It has always been my dream to own a small business in the downtown area of the city we live in.  My family has lived in Lake Orion for 10 years and we fell in love with the quaint and cozy downtown.  But what and where?!  It seemed almost obvious when I looked out the windows of the building for rent on S Broadway St..... A WINE BAR!!!!!!!  With beautiful views of the Paint Creek, Children's Park, and waterfall across the street, it simply felt like home.  I imagined a fun, comfortable place for neighbors to gather and unwind for a bit.  With four young daughters and a full-time job it just didn't seem like it was going to work. Then I met Ed Bosse, who owned the Birmingham Wine Shop in downtown Birmingham. He wanted to open a wine bar and was looking at the same property I was in Lake Orion!  We met, chatted, had a sip of wine, and the rest is history!!  Ed has over 30 years of experience in the wine industry, has his sommelier certificate, and most importantly, just has a gift for finding the most delicious wines that are fun, clean, and affordable.  I love his view on wine in general - it shouldn't be intimidating, it should be fun!  Life is short, DRINK FUN WINE!!  Along the way, Mike Linc came onboard and Wine Social was born. Mike and his family are Lake Orion residents and are also part owners of 20 Front St; a fantastic, unique concert venue directly behind us.  


We hope you enjoy Wine Social as much as we do.  Please come by and have a glass of wine, a craft beer, or custom cocktail.  Meet a new neighbor or two and enjoy the simple things in life for a minute.  DRINK FUN WINE!!
