Beaujolais Extravaganza On Elston! (11/15)

Bojo-Banner-pic-2

Please joins us to celebrate “Beaujolais Day” on Thursday, November 15th, from 7:00pm - 8:30pm and taste over 30 sensational new releases from this sizzling hot category!

 

This do-not-miss event is one week before Thanksgiving, the same day that Beaujolais Nouveau is released. While the excitement for the “Nouveau” style has diminished over the recent years, the enthusiasm for the “Village Level” and “Cru” wines (think Morgon, Fluerie, Moulin a Vent, etc) has flourished and is at an all-time high! Celebrate the 2018 harvest with us as we pour this year’s fresh Nouveau wines (they will really surprise you!), along with over two dozen selections of the serious stuff. Take a tasting journey through the region as we focus on world class producers imported by Kermit Lynch, Louis/Dressner. Michael Corso, Jenny & Francois and The Source along with a handful of other delicious “direct import” surprises!

 

To compliment the wines we’ll have mouthwatering appetizers from the talented kitchen of Le Bouchon, an iconic Chicago French Bistro that specializes in the cuisine of Burgundy. This is guaranteed to be a fun evening filled with incredible value and top notch wines that will be perfect to pour at your Thanksgiving table and other holiday gatherings! The cost is just $25 per person and reservations are required. Reserve your spot today before it sells out!

 

WHEN: Thursday, November 15th, 7:00pm - 8:30pmWHERE: Vin Chicago, 1826 N. Elston AvenueCOST: $25 per person

 

CLICK HERE to reserve your spot today, or please call our Chicago store at 773-489-3454!
