Decoding a Restaurant Wine List @ In Fine Spirits

Seemingly trickier than the DaVinci Code, wine lists can intimidate even the most intrepid wine enthusiast, especially when you need something that will go with rack of lamb, vegetarian pasta, and poached salmon all at the same time! Our two-part series takes the guesswork out of finding the right wine for the right foods at the right price. Tonight at 7pm, decode that list at In Fine Spirits. Reservations required for all wine appreciation classes. Classes are $30 each or $50 for 2 classes, pre-paid at time of reservation. Fees for Wine Club members are $20 per class. In Fine Spirits is located at 5418 N. Clark Street. Call (773) 506-WINE for more information.
