What's included

  • Take a seat at the bar or on the 40-seat riverfront patio and enjoy:
  • Two tasting flights featuring three wines apiece, which Time Out Chicago praises for including "generous pours," such as the sparkling wine flight featuring Jeio Prosecco with notes of banana and passion fruit or the red wine flight with a unique Cotes du Roussillon from Domaine de Bila-Haut tasting of blueberry, plum and vanilla; other options are listed on the wine list
  • A selection of three gourmet cheeses and three charcuterie choices; we recommend sampling the Spanish manchego reserve, the creamy French Camembert and the sharp, nutty pecorino from Calabria, Italy, paired with the cured serrano pork loin from Spain, wild boar sausage, and the salami toscano cured with garlic, red wine and sea salt made by Berkeley's Fra'Mani salumeria and praised by The New York Times

The location over looking the river and the wine flights and cheese/meat tray. Plus the service was great.

Jul 26, 2014 Terrie IL, United States

The location was very nice overlooking the river and the boats and traffic on the river. The wine in the tasting was very good with a chance to experience newer wines that I may never have tried otherwise. The cheese and the charcuterie was very nice, although we did not get to choose what we wanted.

I was glad that I had the coupon since the cost for what we received would have been excessive otherwise, even at Chicago prices. The three tastings amounted to about one glass if you ordered it, and the plate was like a large tapas portion. For $55.00 this would have felt like a waste. Also, our reception using the coupon seemed a bit less than friendly. Also the wine came out about 15 minutes before the plate. Since I had ordered a sparkling tasting, my wine was getting warm waiting on it.

Wonderful service, enjoyable atmosphere and great selections of wine, cheese and meats.

The selection of wine flights and the view sitting along the river.

Jul 20, 2014 Latrease IL, United States

Being able to sit outside and the chefs selection was great. Had lunch and my husband said the chorizo in the paella was the best he's ever had.

the deal was better than we expected.
