Cabernet & Big Red Wines at Elawa Farm! (10/25)

Join us on Thursday, October 25th for a very special walk-around wine tasting at the beautiful Elawa Farm in Lake Forest. We'll be pouring over 50 top bottlings from the world’s greatest wine regions, including Napa Valley, Willamette Valley, Barolo, Brunello, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rioja and beyond. This event will focus on higher tier offerings; the special wines that drinkers rarely have the opportunity to sample in a side-by-side format. In other words, you DO NOT want to miss this event!

 

Supplementing the red wines will be a small assortment of Champagne and premium still whites, with delicious food catered by one of our favorite partners, City Barbecue. Vin Chicago will donate part of the ticket proceeds and sales from wine purchased at the event to the Elawa Farm Foundation!

 

There are two ticket options:

 

General Admission - 6:30-9pm: $60/person. Guests will park at St. James Lutheran Church in Lake Forest with shuttle service running continuously to/from Elawa Farm.

 

Elawa Deluxe Packages - 6:00-9pm: $160/package. Includes two tickets, 30-minute early admission, on-site parking and an exclusive California Cabernet "mystery" bottle to take home night of the event. Deluxe Packages are very limited - Don't wait!
