Wine, Detroit, Manchester and Corronation Street

This is my sightseeing morning in Detroit, the most dysfunctional city I have ever encountered but a captivating place. Over lunch at at a trendy new restaurant in mid-town Detroit I am introduced to local journalist and blogger Chris Kassel and, to my surprise, I find we share common interests in wine and the Manchester soap opera Coronation Street.

After a short but lively lunch it is time to return to Detroit Wayne County Airport for the first leg of the journey home.  I leave the American mid-west with the intense satisfaction that in VinoVi&Co and Elie Wines, Sonho Lusitano Vinhos are in very good hands. We could not wish for better
