Monday, March 15
$35 per person (includes tasting of eight wines)
It has been said that the best way to get to know wine is by drinking it, and D.O.C. Wine Bar in Lincoln Park is the perfect place to get acquainted. Led by sommelier Greg Sorrell, D.O.C. Wine Bar’s monthly wine tastings, which take place the third Monday of every month, traverse many of the world’s top wine-growing regions, giving seasoned oenophiles and budding connoisseurs alike a chance to survey varietals from across the globe.
On Monday, March 15 from 7-9 p.m., D.O.C. Wine Bar will tour one of the world’s oldest wine-producing countries: Italy. Sorrell will guide guests through some of the more common Italian varietals, including Valpolicella and Chianti, as well as some of the more esoteric, from Garganega to Cannonau.
Highlighted wines for the evening include Dievole Super Tuscan (Toscana), Vietti Nebbiolo (Piemonte), Terlan Pinot Nero (Veneto), Sella & Mosca Cannonau (Sardegna) and Fattoria il Gambero “Mercuzio” (Oltrepo Pavese).
The cost of D.O.C. Wine Bar’s monthly wine tastings is $35 per person, which includes samples of eight wines and lively, grapecentric discussions. Please call D.O.C. Wine Bar at 773.883.5101 for more information and reservations.
