The Wine Tasting of the Year!

Join us this fall evening for a lively blind tasting at our house in Grayslake. The theme for this tasting will be "Viva el Vino"- wines from the Spanish speaking countries. We will be tasting examples from the main Spanish-speaking, wine-producing countries: Chile, Argentina, and of course, Spain! Feel free to bring anything else you have found from other Spanish speaking countries, but my assumption is most will come from the 3 countries mentioned.

To go along with the theme, we will be serving Mexican cuisine!

Red, white, rose, sparkling or dessert, it is your choice of bottle to bring.

Prizes will be given to the top 2 wines as well as something special for the less fortunate wine of the evening.



Note: There is no price minimum on this event for the bottle of wine. We believe there are a lot of great values in this segment on the market. We do ask that you make your purchase from a wine store with a knowledgeable staff. Also, if you bring a wine that should be served cold, please chill beforehand.

    So gracious of Sergio and Kristin to open up their home for such a fun event. What a great idea to number all the wine tastings, then vote for their favorite.....just sorry I couldn't stick around for the results.

    Hey Wayne, just one bottle per person. I am expecting about 35-40 people. So we should have a good selection of wine.
