City Winery Chicago Sneak Preview
The wine lifestyle “bar” in Chicago just got raised to a whole new level. Jessica Altieri, wine lifestyle host and CEO of WineChannelTV takes you on a sneak preview of City Winery Chicago, set to open in mid-August 2012. Founder and CEO Michael Dorf is on-site and gives us a preview of what’s ahead for Chicago wine, music and food lovers.
City Winery Chicago is a vision from Mr. Dorf that took place at a wine, music and food event at Ravinia a number of years ago. “We’re trying to create a little Ravinia; a mix of culture and cuisine, said Mr. Dorf in the interview.There were many choices for City Winery #2, given it’s success in New York, but Chicago won the “derby” with it’s combination of passionate wine, food and music lovers.
“CW Chicago is our 2.0. We learned a lot in NY and have improved the physical layout, the operational logistics, taken the best of our menu, programming, and put together an all-star management team. Very excited to open in August.” (Michael Dorf, Founder and CEO from CityWinery.com). City Winery Chicago is a unique facility, combining a fully functioning winery with intimate concerts, food & wine classes, and private events.
Add in a multi-night run of shows with Comedian Lewis Black on August-19th and you can see why the excitement level is building in the West Loop of Chicago.
