10 Things You May Not Know About Us
We like beer, too. We carry a choice selection of craft beer, mostly from Michigan brewers, with some of our favorites from around the world added to the mix.
There is a method to our madness. Ever wonder why we can find a wine anywhere in the store within seconds? That’s because our wares are carefully arranged according to a system of our own devising. You may not be able to tell, but we’re happy to share our organizational secrets with anyone who asks.
We taste and select every wine we sell. If it’s on our shelves, we’ve tasted it, and we’re more than happy to tell you why we like it. Because we do like it. Really.
Those informative little cards found throughout the store? We write those. All those pithy opinions are ours. Do we like the wines with cards more than the wines without cards? No, we’ve just been too busy helping customers to write up every bottle, but that’s our goal.
If it’s available in Michigan, we’ll get it for you. Longing for a bottle—or a case—of a wine you tried at a friend’s house or enjoyed at your favorite restaurant? We’re more than happy to track it down for you. Make a request
We host weekly wine tastings, and they’re free. Just about every Saturday, we offer free in-store tastings from 3pm to 5pm. (These tastings are temporarily suspended for some holidays, so please do call ahead.)
We’ll deliver a case or more for free within the City of Marquette and surrounding Townships. That’s right: wine at your doorstep, free delivery. Contact us for details.
We’re locally owned, and we’re independent. Owners Daniel & Betsy Rutz live right in Marquette with their son Eero. We have a sister store in Ann Arbor, Michigan, owned and operated by Mary Campbell who conceived of Everyday Wines in 2006. But this is the only other Everyday Wines location. We are not a franchise or a corporate chain, just based on the same concept.
Want to keep track of your purchases? We can help with that. Just tell us that you’d like us to record what you buy, remind us every time you check out, and you’ll never have to drive yourself nuts wondering, "Oh, what was that wonderful red blend with the black label I had that one time…?"
We’re open every day, naturally. Monday thru Saturday, we’re open from 10am until 7pm. You can drop by Sundays from noon to 5pm.
A little more about us

Our staff is happy to help you choose the perfect wine—or wines—for any occasion, from weddings to block parties to tonight’s dinner. We host weekly in-store tastings and offer classes for those who want to explore wine a bit more, and, of course, we’re always eager to answer any questions you might have when you visit our store.
