Sample from more than 250 International and domestic wines at the sixth annual Windy City Wine Festival on Friday, September 10 and Saturday, September 11.

Twenty-five bones will afford you 10 tastings, cooking demonstrations from Chicago restaurants and live music from Chicago folk rock singer Michael McDermott and The Michael Heaton Band. Give your palate a break from wine and enjoy the Belgian Beer Café, a beer garden experience within the festival featuring samples of Stella Artois, Leffe and Hoegaarden.

Beyond the usual suspects down the grocery aisle, be sure to grab a taste from some of our personal favorites, Cline Cellars and Cass Wine.
