Special bottlings from Araujo, Caymus, Frog’s Leap, Silver Oak, Jordan, Frank Family, and 25+ others will be open to taste! We’ll also have some tasty bites from House 406 Restaurant on hand to balance the delicious tannins. Reserve your spot for this outstanding tasting today

- Special Wine Tasting Tonight -
 
Meet the 100-Point Winemaker of Louis Martini, plus Special Visitors from Santo Wines!
 
Tonight, Wednesday, May 10th from 5:00 to 7:00our Elston Avenue store will host special guests from two very different producers. Representing California will be Michael Eddy, winemaker for Louis Martini and genius behind their recent string of 95, 97 and 100 point Cabernets. Michael will be pouring three of his wines, including the 95+ point 2013 Monte Rosso Vineyard bottling which Robert Parker calls "probably one of the great all-time Cabernet Sauvignons from Sonoma."
 
On the windswept island of Santorini, two great things are produced, tomatoes and Assyrtiko. Mathios Dimopoulos and Markos Kafouros of Santo Wines will be pouring their 2016 Assyrtiko and 2015 "Aspa" Assyrtiko Blend, while providing insight into the volcanic soil and rugged growing conditions that allow this unusual island to produce such stunning white wine.
 
We invite you to stop by to meet these producers and taste their wines. It's a great opportunity for one-on-one interface with some very interesting people, and a fun chance to taste wine with the folks who make it. No cost, no reservation required.
 
When: Wednesday, May 10th - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Where: Vin Chicago - 1826 N. Elston Avenue, Chicago

This week table has some incredibly unique selections, including a crisp Fiano di Avellino, a single-vineyard Gruner Veltliner in a really cool can (yes, a can!) based on Die Hard villain Hans Gruber, our most popular Provence Rose, a Spanish Bobal, a 100% Pinot Meunier from Baden, a Teroldego from Italy, and a big red blend from Greece! This is just deliciously insane!
