With the gorgeous weather Chicago has been experiencing lately, it would be easy to get confused and start feeling like we live in California instead of Illinois. Luckily, you can take that “California in Chicago” experience one step further by attending a Sonoma County wine showcase on March 27th.
The Sonoma in the City event will allow you to taste wines from 13 AVAs (American Viticultural Areas). More than 100 wines have been selected for the event to highlight the region’s diverse terroir and winemaking styles. In other words, you will be able to experience the unique variety of Sonoma wines without having to travel all the way across the country. The event will include wine tasting and appetizers, in addition to the chance to find out more about Sonoma wineries from the county’s finest winemakers and grape-growers. Tastings are a wonderful opportunity to drink, eat, and mingle while learning something new.
Tickets for the event cost $36 for Visa Signature cardholders (Visa Signature is a sponsor of the event) and $40 for everyone else.
Most importantly, a portion of the ticket proceeds will go to the Almost Home Kids organization. As stated on their website, the mission of Almost Home Kids is “to provide transitional care in a home-like setting to children with complicated health needs, training for their families and respite care.” What could be better than doing something fun for a good cause?
Sonoma in the City will take place on Tuesday, March 27th from 6pm-8:30pm at BIN 36. BIN 36 is located at 339 North Dearborn Street.
