On a rainy autumn evening, staying in and sipping on wine is appealing. We got together with Morrie’s Luxury Auto at the brand-new, one-of-a-kind West End Lincoln dealership to connect on cars, wine pairings and more. A proud automotive leader in the Twin Cities, Morrie’s Luxury Auto is known for creating truly unique purchase and service experiences.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with cocktails by A Proper Pour. Delectable bites by Wandering Kitchen were paired with exquisite wines by sommelier Leslee Miller of Amusée and Sip Better. Other highlights include a Brightwater Clothing & Gear pop-up shop, Marco V Cigars, Claire Ward fashion illustrations, and a dessert bar by Cocoa & Fig. The sweet spread included salted caramel macarons, Valrhona chocolate bouchons, mini pumpkin cupcakes, mini apple pies and mini carrot-cake sandwich cookies. Camille Lizama captured the festivities in style.
