A genuine star in the local wine and cheese world, Diego Aliste has been on the top of our wishlist since the early days. Having honed his palate at some of our area faves — Zingerman’s, Spencer Ann Arbor, Western Market, Rose’s Fine Foods, and Paramita Sound — Diego now brings his truly exceptional pours and easy-going energy to the Frame family.

Cutting straight to the point: There has never been a better time to get smitten with wine.
And alongside Detroit’s buzzy Argentinian empanada outpost Empacho, Diego is curating a vibey South American wine experience for the record books, marrying his Chilean roots and love for wine & music with the culinary talents of Empacho chef-owner Gonzalo Collazo.

Count on two wildly different nights: a playful Argentinian communal dinner inside Frame Thursday led by Chef Gonzalo; and a casual, come-as-you-are Friday party with impeccable vinyl and wines curated by Diego, Empacho empanadas, and the breezy energy of our tented backlot Frame Pavilion. We’re already swooning for this genius collaboration.

Come solo and make new friends… or grab a date and score major points for being creative. 
The further we get into summer, the more electrifying our mixed-use collab spaces are becoming for the ultimate experience in food and drink experimentation.

Let’s party!
