Meet the Winemaker

Partners in Wine

Get to know the talented farmers, craftsman, and pioneers who create the wines and spirits you enjoy. Our Meet the Winemaker series connects industry professionals to winemakers and distillers from all over the world, and gives you unfiltered access to the stories behind your favorite bottles.


About the Series

Each winemaker event is customized to fit the needs of our hospitality partners in Chicago and to accommodate the visiting vineyard's availability. Sometimes we host dinners, sometimes we have small tastings, and sometimes we arrange for something more unique.


To experience a winemaker event, please explore our upcoming calendar and send us a message to inquire about availability.
