The Antinori Family’s devotion to winemaking is woven through 625 years, 26 generations, and their legendary vineyards in Italy.

Bringing a bottle to pot luck? Setting a huge family spread? Throwing together a buffet for fast friends?  Everyone needs a holiday stash of super delish wines that everyone will like. And if they don’t break the bank, better still–you can bring 2 bottles! We’ll cover the broadest range of tastes:  From the stunning buy of dry South African Chenin, to elegant white and red Burgundy, to oak-aged Rioja, to classic Tuscan Sangiovese, to inky Argentine Malbec and Cab, to fragrant-fruity German Riesling, to caramelly Tawny Port. Quality comfort labels will include: Perrin, Girardin & Matrot from France, Marques de Caceres from Spain, and Caparzo from Tuscany.  From $8 to $25, every wine will have an irresistible delish factor. Our dear friend Anne Keller from Vineyard Brands will help us feature these Best Buys! Purchase Tickets Online.

Founders Brewing Beer Tasting | Thursday, November 6th | 6:30 to 8pm | $10
Established in 1997, Founders has been providing the Midwest beer scene with complex, in-your-face ales, with huge aromatics, bigger body, and tons of flavor. The Founders Family, a group of passionate beer enthusiasts, has grown around this simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for a chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.” From the verge of bankruptcy to chasing national brand status, Founders has won many of us over with their time tested craft beers. Please join us for a walk around tasting of some of Founders’ finest Ales including some barrel aged favorites and many of the coveted Backstage series limited releases. Purchase Tickets Online.

Grower Champagne Seminar Tasting With Guest Speaker Mark Hutchens of Robert Houde Wines | Thursday November 13th | 6:30 to 8pm | $30 

Champagne made by the farmers who actually grow the grapes, or “Grower Champagne,” has taken the wine world by storm. These quality-focused small houses make Champagnes from specific villages. They deliver a unique expression of terroir, in comparison to the big houses (“Grandes Marques”) who blend from many vineyard sources. No one has championed Grower Champagne more than Importer Terry Theise, whose selections are the darlings of sommeliers everywhere and a favorite of Chicago’s own Robert Houde Wines co-owner Mark Hutchens. This tasting will be a seated, class-room style event as Hutchens guides us through bench-mark Champagnes of the Theise portfolio such as Gaston Chiquet of Dizy, Jean Lallement of Verzenay (Pinot Noir dominant), and the Special Club Blanc de Blancs (Chardonnay) of Pierre Gimmonet. Up and coming estates such as Jacques Lassaigne and Henriet Bazin will also be featured. Purchase Tickets Online.
