Paint the town red! Red wine, that is. Yes, though vino is beautiful in all its varieties, that perfect shade of deep maroon – the one we all know probably a bit too well – reigns supreme for Fall 2016. Whether it’s a Merlot maxi or Pinot polish, we can’t keep ‘em bottled up to ourselves! If styles were wines, we’d be the sommeliers, and this would be the house list. So kick back, relax, and enjoy a big glass of adult grape juice while reading all about this tasty trend. No really, go pour yourself one. We’ll wait.
Most of the time when wine is on our clothes, it’s not a good thing and is typically due to having too much of the stuff to begin with. Fortunately, there’s no such thing as too much wine this fall. The color flatters just about everyone, and the best part? No stain remover required.

Pairings are a big part of the wine experience. A good meal can turn into a great one with the addition of the right pour, which always seem to bring out the best in a dish. Kind of how accessories do for an outfit, right? Seriously, this post is writing itself.

Obviously we’re not going to write an entire post about wine without giving you a taste of the real stuff. Our very own Latinicity Food Hall and Lounge has a full-bar, perfect for catching up with friends or kicking off a date night. After you’ve wet your whistle there, migrate to The Dearborn Urban America Tavern (now open) to either take the celebration up a notch, or to wind down with a nightcap.
Also, nights in, whether with your SO or Jon Snow (who says your SO isn’t Jon Snow?!) are always more fun when you’re drinking out of something pretty!
