On Sunday, October 23rd, from 11am - 3pm, something very fun will be taking place at our Elston Avenue store as part of our 30-Year Anniversary celebration. We’re bringing back importers Robert Houde (former Sommelier at Charlie Trotters) and Mark Hutchens (former National Sales Manager for Terry Theise) for ANOTHER special tasting and “case sale” of wines from their great portfolio.

We recently made a special buy of Italian and French wines. This Sunday at our Elston Avenue store we will be opening two dozen of them for you to sample and offering them for sale at massively discounted, by-the-case prices.

Opportunities range from a delicious liter of Grillo for just $3.99 (70% below the lowest online price) to an array of 93, 94 and 95 point Barolo and Brunello at savings of 40-50% off initial release price.

Wines will be available for purchase only by the case. Supplies are limited and sales will be strictly on a first-come, first-served basis. Make sure to arrive early to get your pick of the hottest wines. (Last time we did a case sale, many of the top wines were gone in the first hour!)

This is a pre-order event. Place your order on Sunday and your wine will be ready for pickup the following week. No reservations required, so round up some friends and come early to get first crack at the most exciting deals!

WHEN: Sunday, October 23rd, 11am - 3pm
WHERE: Vin Chicago, 1826 N. Elston Avenue
