Join us for the Austrian Wine tasting event of the year: Austria Uncorked Chicago.
Hundreds of top Austrian wines including the much anticipated 2011 vintage will be poured and paired with cuisine from Chicago’s best restaurants at Venue One in Chicago. Grüner Veltliner, Blaufränkisch and Riesling is only the tip of the Austrian wine iceberg.
Discover why 3,000 years of experience in winemaking has made Austria the hottest wine producing region today. Time to get your Grüv on!
Participating restaurants include Austrian Bakery & Deli, Julius Meinl Chicago, Leopold Chicago, N9NE Steakhouse and ghostbar, Porkchop and Vivo.
Proceeds from the event will benefit a local charity project in Chicago, Common Threads, which teaches low-income children to cook wholesome and affordable meals to prevent childhood obesity.
