March 21, 2015 Pinot Days Chicago 2015 - Chicago, Illinois
Pinot Days Chicago is our most intimate event, but it has the biggest heart. 65 wineries fly into the Windy City and we paint the town pinot with Winemaker Dinners, "Meet the Winemaker" pinot and food pairings at local wine bars and restaurants, tastings at boutique retail stores and finally, the Grand Festival at beautiful Navy Pier. Chicago is our friendliest and foodiest city of all; Chicagoans know great food and wine and they pursue it with vigor but (refreshingly) without any pretense. Join us in Chicago for a whirlwind of exquisite wine, incredible food and (considering our wonderful winemakers and the great-hearted Midwesterners who join us each year) the loveliest people we can.
