One of the best (and there are many) perks of living in a Downtown Detroit luxury loft is that there are so many wonderful restaurants, bars, and shops almost literally on your doorstep.
And, one of my favourite shops and neighbors (which is literally on the Lofts of Merchants Row doorstep!) the House of Pure Vin, has been nominated for WDIV’s Best Of 2017!
The House of Pure Vin, with their incredible selection and helpful staff, has been the source of many excellent wines for my own table and Host/Hostess Gifts I can pick up on the way to a friend’s home.
I’ve also attended a number of their tastings, which allow me to learn about wine from a sommelier, discover new vintages, and experience incredible pairings. The friends I’ve brought with me have loved the shop, with its delightful décor and comfortable tasting room. The pairings are always a chance for me to catch up with a friend while enjoying new wines and for us to meet and mingle with others in a classy but casual social setting–which may be the best pairing of all!
This weekend House of Pure Vin is celebrating their nomination by pairing up with another wonderful Detroit shop: Good Cakes and Bakes (located on Livernois). This bakery has all the tasty traditionals (Breakfast Breads and Coffee Cakes, Scones and Muffins, Cookies, Pies and Cheesecakes, and Cakes) with standouts like their Hummingbird Cupcake, their Sweet Potato Pound Cake, their Gooey Butter Cake, and their Oreo Cheesecake Brownie. Yes. That’s an Oreo Cheesecake Brownie. It’s almost as much fun to say twice as it is to go back for seconds!
With the expert guidance of Master Sommelier Claudia Tyagi (one of three Master Sommeliers in Michigan), the incredible vintages offered by House of Pure Vin, and the delightful samplings of Good Cake and Bakes, Sunday’s pairing promises to be outstanding!
And it’s an Open House…what better way to celebrate being nominated for WDIV’s Best Of 2017 and a part of Detroit!
When you live in a Downtown Detroit luxury loft at the Lofts of Merchants Row and call Detroit home you are surrounded by the Best Of!
House of Pure Vin, 1433 Woodward Avenue, Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM
