WINES FOR A CAPRICIOUS WEATHER
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this year’s timely winter as much as anyone in Chicago. What I am not a fan of is the unpredictable on-again, off-again temperature swing that seems to render my effort to stay healthy ineffective. The boy scout in me takes the challenge of this rollercoaster weather head on to ensure that the selection we offer can withstand any temperamental changes outside. As the seasonal ingredients on Chef Andrew Zimmerman’s menu make the slow and tentative transition from hardy greens to root vegetables, the wine list undergoes a similar evolution in style. Aside from our usual efforts to highlight wines that are produced using organic, biodynamic, and sustainable agricultural practices, a special attention is paid to assembling the current wines-by-the-glass program. As usual, this collection of wines reflects our commitment to quality, value, and the promotion of lesser-known grape varietals and regions, with an emphasis on small production wineries as well as the classics. The weather rant aside, secretly, I know I would like just a few more snowy days before the spring warmth.
