The Royce Detroit is getting some national love thanks to being named one of the 10 Best Wine Shops Nationwide for 2018 by the website VinePair.
The top ten list was broken down into geographical regions and The Royce took the top spot for the Great Lake Region which included Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
Here is what VinePair said about The Royce.
“Equal parts bottle shop, wine bar, and gastropub, The Royce takes advantage of Michigan laws that allow wine sales for both on- and off-premise consumption. While this kind of bottle shop is nothing new for those familiar with buying wine in London or Parisian caves à manger, it’s relatively rare here.”
To be considered for the VinePair Best Best Wine Store List the stores had to meet some requirements. Stores must keep regular hours, carry a wide range of bottles, and had to be a cornerstone of the local wine-drinking community.
The Royce opened in August of 2016 and is located inside the Kales Building right across the street from Grand Circus Park.
