Editorial Review of Windy City Wine Festival

Date: September 10-11, 2010

Cost: $25 in advance; $35 at the door; $10 for a designated driver ticket

Organizer: inPLAY Events

What to expect: Wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and live entertainment at Daley Bicentennial Plaza in Millennium Park.

Why to go: Bone up on wines from around the world (Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile and Argentina will all be represented in addition to various regions of the U.S.) and you can impress your friends at the next dinner party. Also: the Wine Discount Center will be offering 10 percent off any wine ordered at the festival.

Additional info: The event takes place at Buckingham Fountain. There are three ticket prices: the Designated Driver ticket ($10) includes two non-alcoholic drinks, Festival Program, Food & Wine Seminars, cooking demonstrations, music, and the opportunity to purchase wine. The regular ticket ($25 in advance, $35 at the door) includes all that, but with ten wine tastings and a souvenir wine glass. There is also a group ticket price for groups of 15 or more, and this must be arranged in advance. Not into wine? Head to the Blue Moon beer garden for samples of your favorite brews.
