Part wine bar, part shop, Vertical features some of the most coveted wines in the world. Run by a father-and-daughter team, Jim and Remy Lutfy, Vertical offers more than 250 vintages by the bottle, and more than 40 by the glass. Why should you trust the Lufty fam to pick your wine? They've been doing it for ages. The owner of Fine Wine Source in Livonia, the elder Lutfy got his start selling wine in his family's store, Cloverleaf Market, and Remy studied wine-making at University of California Davis, which boasts a strong program and is within close proximity to Napa Valley. Vertical is housed in a chic space in The Ashley, just steps from the Detroit Athletic Club and Ford Field.
