Fortified Wines in Detroit Area

Does anyone know of a wine/liquor store in the Detroit area that specializes in, or has a strong penchant for, fine, fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, etc.)?

  1. If you can't find GREAT Port, Sherry or Madiera at Bommarito Bakery on Greater Mack in St Clair Shores, you won't find it anywhere.

    And if you have a specific request not available there, Eric, The Wine Seller will bring it in for you!

    (the bakery is closed for family vacation until, March 29th)

      They DO have the best vintage wine selection on the East Side. It is a real hidden gem. I hadn't thought of looking for Port, etc. Thanks.

        Champagne's in Warren on Chicago Rd (13 Mile) just west of Van Dyke Ave is worth a stop. Bigger than Bommarito, but I do like Bommarito (which also may or may not have some of the Italian groceries you also are seeking.)
