Champagne is a complex and exciting subject and every month we dive in to a different part of our favorite wine growing region. We approach each class with an eye to making it fun, informative and interactive. In each study hall we taste new champagnes and discuss current events as well as history and tradition. 

Hosted in partnership with BottlesUp!

June 1 - July 6 - August 3 - September 11

Chicago Champagne Week is a time for everyone to revel in their mutual desire to drink more Champagne. In 2019 the momentum of Champagne Happy Hour made it obvious that we needed to up the ante. We launched Chicago Champagne Week and partnered with 44 of the best restaurants in the city to pour 58 different Champagne producers for 10 days. The 10 day celebration also included Champagne dinners and special educational seminars. Our Champagne Happy Hour that month took place with over 300 attendees, 80 Champagne producers and over 100 different cuvées. The second annual Chicago Champagne week will take place in 2023, check back here or on Instagram to find out more.
