5 amazing spots every wine lover in Detroit should visit

March 16, 2020 | Detroit Landmarks

Back in September of 2019, Detroit welcomed its first new winery in 60 years. Detroit Vineyards treats guests to vino with grapes grown in and around the city as well as throughout Michigan. The new kid on the block hosts a packed menu of sumptuous wines to tempt and please new and seasoned fans alike.

This is great news for wine lovers from here in Michigan and far beyond its borders; those who see wine as an experience to be savored and much more than simply a drink. In fact, many of Detroit’s most popular wine destinations include patio seating from intimate to casual, gourmet food options, unforgettable live music, and even wine-themed exercise distractions such as yoga and cycling.

It’s even better with a place to call home in close proximity to all these delicious wine destinations. Indeed, there are many luxury apartments for rent in Michigan with easy access to your favorite grape-inspired beverage. The Lofts of Merchants Row is one of the city’s finest, offering an enviable cast of apartment amenities catering to a discerning luxury audience. When it’s time to head out on the town, many of Detroit’s go-to wine getaways are within walking distance or a short cab ride.

Best of all, one of the world’s most respected wine authorities, Wine Spectator (a magazine dedicated to wine and its culture), included well over two dozen metro Detroit restaurant establishments on its prestigious and respected collection of nearly 4,000 restaurants around the world that offer spectacular wine lineups. This list of heavy hitters is reviewed for 1,000-plus wine menus, highly respected wine cellars, a deep bench of vintages and bottles, and presentation.
