Chicago’s Diverse Wine Scene Includes Champagne Bars, Natural Bottle Shops and Destination Restaurants
Wine Bars Worth (Many) a Visit
At this River North wine bar, an expansive tapas menu ensures something for everyone. Kick things off with a round of housemade tomato bread, patatas bravas fries, mushroom pintxos and Galacian octopus, alongside one of the Txakoli porrons. Then move to a bottle from any of the other small producers showcased on the 100-strong list, which includes Clos Cibonne, Jean-Louis Chave and Jacques Selosse. Rare Wine Wednesdays feature select bottles from some of the country’s most covetable cellars.
