Saturday Wine Tasting - 10/14

10-14-17
Wine Tasting Event Naperville, Chicago, Highland Park, and Barrington

 

Please join us for our weekly wine tasting this Saturday, October 14th, 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 we have a couple of white wines kicking off the tasting that are difficult to pronounce but impossible to resist. From there, we head to California for a classic Chardonnay and a beautiful bubbly before heading north to Oregon for what they do best, Pinot Noir. We round out the tasting with a trio of reds - one each from Portugal, Napa Valley, and Chateauneuf-du-Pape (a 95-pointer no less!) - that are bound to blow you away!

 

Check out the entire list below for all four locations (CLICK on a wine to read the full tasting notes) and stop in Saturday afternoon to taste with us while you shop!
