Wine Tasting this Saturday - 3/18

Wine Tasting Event Naperville, Chicago, Highland Park, and Barrington

Please join us for our weekly wine tasting this Saturday, March 18th, from 12:00 - 4:00! Every Saturday, all four Vin Chicago locations pour a diverse selection of the hottest new wines from our monthly newsletter. This week's tasting table includes a compelling Chenin Blanc from France, a 92-point Catena Chardonnay, the return of perennial favorite Espelt Garnacha, blow-out pricing on a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the triple 94-Point Fontalloro Super Tuscan, and Dow's LBV Port!

In addition, our Elston Avenue store will host a special guest winemaker, Drake Whitcraft, to pour his latest releases of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from his family's estate in Santa Barbara County. The Whitcraft Winery is more than 30 years old and a pioneer in the Central Coast wine scene. The winery specializes in single-vineyard (and even single-clone) expressions of Pinot and Chardonnay, and our in-store tasting will offer a fun side-by-side tasting of four Pinot Noir bottlings from Pence Ranch Vineyard from four different clones. No reservation required, so stop on by between 1pm and 4pm to meet with Drake and taste his exceptional wines!

Join us on Tuesday, March 21st at our Elston Avenue store for our second annual tasting of "natural" wines. Most wine lovers are familiar with the term "organic wine" but our tasting will take you much deeper into this industry trending category as we pop open more than 40 wines that are produced with minimal intervention and carry terms such as "biodynamic,"orange" and "pet nat."

We'll explore offerings from well-known importers such as Louis/ Dressner Selections and Neal Rosenthal along with smaller and equally passionate importers like Selection Massale and Zev Rovine. To complement the wines, Publican Quality Meats will be in the house to provide an assortment of charcuterie and delicious bites sourced from local farmers who share the same principles as the winemakers behind these wines.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 21st, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
WHERE: Vin Chicago, 1826 N. Elston Avenue
COST: Just $30 per person
