CBS Chicago says Rittergut Wine Bar & Social Club is one of the city's best wine bars, and Chicagoist calls the Loop locale a "hidden gem ... with a great menu and an amazing selection of wines." With this Local Deal, perfect for after-work drinks or a Saturday stop in the Loop, subscribers can enjoy two wine flights and a cheese-and-charcuterie platter for $28, regularly $57.

Why we love it

  • 2 can sip a flight of 3 wines and sample gourmet cheeses and charcuterie for $28
  • One of Chicago's best wine bars; "the owners have...created something special" (CBS Chicago)
  • Chicagoist calls the Loop locale along the Chicago River a "hidden gem"
  • Sample flights of red, white or even sparkling wines

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," sample three different reds, whites or sparkling wines apiece (up to $17 each)
  • A selection of three gourmet cheeses and three charcuterie choices to pair with your wine selection including Bavarian blue cheese and Spanish jamon serrano (regularly $23)
  • Visit on select Saturday evenings this summer for Rittergut's new "Classic Movies on the River" gatherings -- patrons can watch films like "Sideways," "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" outside along the river while sipping glasses of wine and watching the sun set between the skyscrapers.

wine was excellent

It was a bit dark in the bar area..... too dark to read the menu

great service and delicious food and wine

Feb 10, 2014 Kristin Illinois, United States

The atmosphere is nice. The wine flights were generously portioned and the charcueterie platter was fantastic. We got to pick our own cheeses and meats that came on a board with some freshly sliced apple, quince and fig and wafer crakers that did not take away from the taste of the meats and cheeses.

We also enjoyed a spicey lamb burger that was delicious. Although we were there in the winter, the atmosphere indoors was warm and cozy. I can't wait to get to the outdoor seating in the summer.

Hard to say what was most enjoyable as the food was equally as good as the wine, and the beer selection was nice since my hubs is not a wine drinker.
