As nice as it can be to open a new bottle of wine in a carefully set indoor environment, there’s something to be said for enjoying wine in the fresh, open air…especially at an iconic sight in Chicago. Unfortunately, law and propriety will tend to prohibit you from pouring yourself a glass at most such outdoor attractions.
This coming weekend, however, you should check out The Windy City Wine Festival, which will give you the opportunity to experience not only one bottle of wine, but dozens, while relaxing by Chicago’s beautiful Buckingham Fountain.
You can check out a full list of wineries and the bottles they’ll be bringing for your enjoyment here. All of these wines will also be available at a special discount price, so if you happen to find that wine you didn’t know you were always looking for, you can buy yourself several bottles to uncork in the future. More than simply an elaborate wine tasting, The Windy City Wine Festival also features seminars and classes taught by wine experts from all across Chicago and live music events in the evenings. But most importantly, it’s a chance to join one of the largest gatherings of wine enthusiasts in the Chicago area at a gorgeous locale, and share the atmosphere.
Two days only and tickets are on sale now! We hope to see many of our customers there, soaking up the afternoon and evening as the summer begins to transition into fall. And remember—if you do find that bottle of wine you need to buy a dozen of, don’t forget us when you’re trying to figure out how to store it!
