Affordable Wines, Perfect For The Summer

The dog days of summer are in full effect in Chicago. With the heat index rising, we at Vin Chicago feel we owe it to you to recommend some delicious and affordable wine to beat the heat!

Classic Sauvignon Blanc

Crisp, dry and oh-so-refreshing, Sauvignon Blanc is a staple when temperatures rise. Whether you choose one from France, New Zealand or California, these wines offer amazing value. One staff favorite comes from South Africa, called Bayten, and offers a ton of citrus and a gorgeous bit of salinity on the finish. Chill these down and enjoy the sun!

Gorgeous Italian Whites

Italy may be best known for Pinot Grigio but the country is producing plenty of other white gems. Vin Chicago carries a bevy of affordable wines from Italy that offer mind-boggling value. Check them out and be sure to try this 92-point rated Falanghina!

Rockin’ Rose’

Rose’ is the hottest wine category in the United States. People finally realize that pink wine is NOT White Zinfandel. Instead, Vin Chicago offers a vast array of affordable Rose’ wines from all over the world. Many of our staff drink these all refreshing quaffs all-year-round. Don’t miss this crazy value from Mas des Bressades!

We hope this helps as you enjoy the summertime festivities. Our hand selected array of wines are available for purchase in store and online. Not sure what you will like? Stop by any of our four Vin Chicago locations and our passionate wine crew will be happy to help! We also host weekly wine tasting events at each of our locations. Come out and try something new!
