Chicago may not be wine country, but there are still many places for the avid wine connoisseur to smell, swirl, taste, and savor great wines. Chicago is full to the brim with bars and restaurants, and when it comes to great wine bars, there is no exception. If you are looking for a casual setting be sure to visit Lincoln Park's D.O.C Wine Bar for lot's a seating, a fantastic bistro, and a knowledgeable staff. You may also enjoy the spacious 404 Wine Bar, situated in the heart of the fun Southport Corridor. This wine bar is warm and homey with outdoor seating during the summer. Bluebird Bistro is very similar, with a bit of an industrial feel. For a truly impressive menu check out Bin 36 for it's great sampling menu, Webster's Wine bar for is expansive selection, and In Fine Spirits for its' dedication to creativity and local ingredients. For a great dining and pairing experience visit the quaintly beautiful Volo and European-style Vintage 338. Finally, for something on the hip and trendy side raise a glass at Juicy Wine Company and Meritage Café. Cheers!
