Morgan & York Fine Wines and Specialty Foods is owned and operated by Tommy York and Matt Morgan, both longtime residents of Ann Arbor.
The shop specializes in food and drink produced by artisans- the people who make the wine, for example, are usually growing their own fruit. The people who make the cheese are usually making it from the milk of their own herds. Our staff are friendly and well-informed, and they work hard to help you enjoy these age-old traditions.
This event will consist of a discussion, tasting and signing. No reservations are needed.
