Global Wines - Chicago Roots

The Second City is one of the world's most dynamic destinations for culinary excellence. Yet, even with all of its worldwide accolades, our city is still perceived globally as a town dominated by whiskey and craft beer. Chicago is home to some of the world's most talented wine professionals, suppliers and a passionate community that is ready to stand and be heard. The goal of this site is to highlight, feature and champion this community and all of the incredible things that are happening in the world of wine, right here on the soil of the Second City.
