Original Article: "It’s National Drink Wine Day. Here Are 5 Chicago Wine Bars To Check Out"

CHICAGO (CBS)–President’s Day is also National Drink Wine Day, and luckily Chicago has plenty of places to cozy up with a glass of vino after work–or during the day if you’re one of the lucky ones who has the day off.

Look close enough, and Chicago’s neighborhoods are studded with cool wine bars. Many of them, at first glance, seem like hole-in-the wall joints, but a closer look reveals tempting food menus paired with awesome wine lists from the ordinary to the exotic.

Here are five must-see wine bars in Chicago, in honor of National Drink Wine Day.

Bar Ramone (River North, 441 N. Clark St.): Blink as you walk down Clark Street and you risk missing this cozy, Spanish-style wine bar nuzzled next to country music bar Bub City. With at least 25 wines served by the glass, you can sample European varietals from Rhone, Burgundy and Piedmont. Wines are best enjoyed with small-plated meals like the patatas bravas fries or the croquetas with black truffle aioli.
