Wow! We had so much fun at the annual Champagne Tasting at Vin Chicago in Barrington a couple of weeks ago! I can easily see how this event is a perennial favorite. Initially, I thought the concept of trying over 30 champagnes may be a tad overwhelming. I do like a little bit of an adventure but would such a sampling hold my interest and would I really notice differences between the wines? Hmmmm.......

The entire evening Vin was abuzz with a cheerful holiday spirit! Everyone was out to have fun and we had a pleasant time chit chatting with other couples. A delightful mood and wonderful launch into the holidays!
When assembling a tasting, Vin chose wines with a range of profiles and price points. An advantage to this tasting--we were able to taste some higher-end champagnes such as Veuve Clicquot and Moet & Chandon! Yes, we were able to be a tad "fancy" for this evening. Cheers! But, we also tasted quite a range of champagnes and sparkling wines in our price range. So while spoiling ourselves, we were able to hone in on some wines perfect for our special occasions.

The entire staff at Vin Chicago is very knowledgeable and approachable. If you need help choosing wines during this holiday season, I definitely recommend a visit to Vin Chicago! The welcoming staff will help you choose from a wide range of selections. Saturdays are an especially fun time to go to enjoy free tastings from 12PM-4PM! Also, keep posted for future wine events via Vin's email. They are a blast!
