Saturday Wine Tasting - 12/2

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

 

Please join us for our weekly wine tasting this Saturday, December 2nd, 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. We kick off December with a humdinger (yeah, we said it) of a tasting. Stop in to taste a lineup that includes a triple 93-point Chardonnay from South Africa, a 12-year-old 93-point Rioja Reserva, a somehow under-appreciated 96+-point Chianti Classico Riserva that is a staff favorite, and a great 94-point Cabernet with super long name from one of the happiest of all canyons!

 

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!
