How to ‘Wine Down’ during Quarantine
Elle The Foodie
I am a food and wine content creator sharing my journey of becoming a home cook through my blog, Millennial Meets Stove. Along with creating recipes, I design wine experiences for millennials throughout Detroit and cohost the outspoken wine podcast – “The Millennial Winedown”.
I have a LOVE for wine. Throughout quarantine, I have spent a lot of extra time studying wine, following wine experts through social media and online websites, and leave the house once a week for an essential wine run. Below are my top picks for wine experiences in Metro Detroit while social distancing.
FOLK Detroit - Trumbull Avenue, Detroit MI
The local Detroit market and café offer online ordering of curbside pick-up for drinks, food, and grocery items. You can purchase by visiting their website Thursday through Sunday but only until 2 p.m.! Order wine, champagne, fresh veggies and so much more.
Marrow - Kercheval Avenue, Detroit MI
Looking for a great dinner along with curbside wine? Marrow is offering restaurant cooking kits and fresh meats from their butcher by visiting their website.
HOUSE OF PURE VIN
HOUSE OF PURE VIN - Woodward Avenue, Detroit MI
Known as a Black-owned wine shop, HOPV will be offering online purchases for delivery and wine club membership with pick up at their downtown Detroit store. Choose from an assortment of wines and check out their quarantine and wine series via Instagram live.

PizzaPlex - Vernor Highway, Detroit MI
How about pizza and wine? Pizzaplex is offering same day pick up for all orders placed before 3 p.m. and the next day for all placed after the cut-off time. Order ready-to-bake pizza, Italian cheese, olive oil, flour (because everyone has decided to start baking) and of course beer, Italian wines, and ciders. Heads up, there’s a delivery minimum of $40 and a $10 delivery fee.
MotorCity Wine - Michigan Avenue, Detroit MI
We all love Motor City Wine’s patio, so let’s help support our favorites by ordering wine for pick up, available Wednesday through Saturday. Although there is a six-bottle minimum, bottles can start off at $10-12 so it’ll definitely be worth the buy and I mean, what else do you have to do but drink wine?
