WINES FOR A CAPRICIOUS WEATHER
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy this year’s mild winter as much as anyone in Chicago. What I am not a fan of is the unpredictable on-again-and-off-again temperature swing that seems to render my effort to stay healthy ineffectively. The boy scout in me takes the challenge of this rollercoaster weather head on to insure 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 root vegetables to the first sighting of spring greens, the wine list undergoes a similar evolution in style. Aside from our usual efforts made to highlight wines that are produced using organic, biodynamic and sustainable agricultural practices, a special attention is paid in assembling the current wines-by-the-glass program. The line-up embodies our readiness in spite of the uncertain seasonal shift. 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 and the classics. The weather rant aside, secretly, I know I would like just a few more snowy days before the spring warmth.
