New Boyne City wine/food store aims for local flavor

Ed and Kristine Brehm
Ed and Kristine Brehm are thinking locally as they prepare to open a new wine and food shop in downtown Boyne City. Wine Emporium & Market is set to open in mid-December at 123 Water St., immediately west of the Boyne Country Provisions party store which the Brehms currently operate. The two retail spaces will connect with one another. The wine section currently offered at Boyne Country Provisions will be relocated to the Wine Emporium space and expanded significantly. "We'll have more than 3,000 bottles," Ed said. Ed, a certified sommelier, tastes a variety of wines in order to determine which bottles to offer to customers. The selection covers a broad price range, but the emphasis is on $10-20 wines that deliver exceptional quality for their price point. The new retail space also will house an Italian-themed deli with soups and sandwiches as well as a market area with organic, international and natural food items. Fresh meats, chicken and fish, as well as breads, side salads, dips and Michigan and international cheeses, will be available. Full story from Petoskey News-Review.
