November 17, 2016 - A Wine Affair - Chicago, Illinois
A Wine Affair presents: Winder - This fall’s edition is a bit different than the last.  Dating is rough. Most of us have had our fair share of 1st dates gone wrong, one too many dating apps, and dates that put us right back on the couch with a glass (bottle) of wine.  But what if you could date… wine?  Winder has brought in 4 eligible blends from Naples, Italy for you to speed-date. Like a wine? Let it know with a ‘swipe’ ticket. Don’t like a wine? The next one’s a table away.  What would wine be without the ‘dine’ portion? We are lucky to have one of Chicago’s top Italian restaurants, Volare, that has created an exclusive menu to pair flawlessly with the 4 wines.
