Saturday Wine Tasting - 12/9

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

 

Please join us for our weekly wine tasting this Saturday, December 9th, 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 have one heck of a lineup this week, including a staff favorite vintage Prosecco that blows away the competition, a dry German Riesling at over 50% off, a can't-miss white Burgundy, Wine Spectator's #72 wine of 2017, a double 93-point Barolo from Vajra, and a beast of a red blend from Herman Story that winemaker Russel From describes as, ""If Merle Haggard and Neil Young had ever released that metal record it would be playing on this train as it blew through the California deserts, carrying it's payload of blackberry cola sorbet on a quest for the coast: granite talus, smoked black cherry, flame kissed gingerbread village, crispy blueberry sage handpie, road tar, perfect powerchords and lightning struck oxen." OK, we are not sure what that means, but it sounds cool!

Please join us for our weekly wine tasting this Saturday, December 2nd, from 12:00 - 4:00!

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!
