Every Saturday, all four Vin Chicago locations pour a diverse selection of the hottest new wines from our monthly newsletter. Whew, it got hot again! Good thing our tasting table has some wines that are perfect to chill down and enjoy in the hot sun, while others are just right for the last few weeks of grilling season. This week's tasting table features a crisp, mineral-driven Gruner, a perfectly balanced White Burgundy, a beautiful Rose from the Ile de Beaute, a 91-point Pinot Noir, an authentic sub-$10 Rioja, and the giant 94-point Bootleg Proprietary Red!
