Wine Bars in Metro Detroit

This is your definitive guide to the best Wine Bars in Metro Detroit, including addresses, phone numbers, website links, and the highlights that make these bars worth visiting. Don't forget, an excellent idea is to rent a party bus to transport you and your friends from wine bar to wine bar! An all day wine tasting adventure. Our favorite wine bars in the city are...




Robusto's Martini Lounge and Wine Bar

      We love Robusto's because of their fine wines of course, but also because they've got great live music Thursday thru Saturday. They've got a great selection of whites and reds, by the bottle or by the glass. There are also a few wonderful champagnes on the menu. If you've got martini loving friends you'll want to bring them along, because they've got more than 185 martinis, and they were voted Best Martini Lounge in 2002 and 2003 by The Detroit News. There's absolutely no better place to relax with a glass of wine than at Robusto's Martini Lounge and Wine Bar, and that's why they made the top of our list!

Enoteca Campo Marzio

      If you're headed downtown on your wine tasting adventure, you will not want to miss Enoteca Campo Marzio. As a matter of fact, you can pretty much do it all in one place here. They've got more than one hundred different wines from all over the world. All wines are available by the bottle, but if you prefer a wider sampling at one time, you'll want to opt for the wine flights, which are 2oz servings of three wines from a particular region. You may want to try the Michigan flight for a bit of local flavor! There's also a delicious menu of food to enjoy, including meats and cheeses, salads and sandwiches, and even truffles and chocolates. You will love it here.
