April Eno-Versity with the Windy City Wine Guy

img_1115For those of you who cannot get enough of wine pairings, wine knowledge, and wine regions, ENO has something for you.  ENO-Versity, a small class geared toward learning about wine, regions, history, and pairings, is taught monthly. 

Next month, on Monday, April 6, the Windy City Wine Guy will be conducting a class on Oregon and Washington wines.  Wine from these two states have been and currently are gaining world renown, with the Burgundian style Pinot Noir from Oregon and world class Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington, along with many other varietals and styles.  They also produce some of my personal favorite wines.  Here are a bit more specifics:

We will be tasting four wines, paired with cheese and chocolate:

  1. 2006 Cristom Vineyards Estate Pinot Gris with Piave Vecchio Italian cow milk cheese

  2. 2007 Lange Winery Reserve Pinot Noir with Humboldt Fog goat milk cheese

  3. 2004 Isenhower Cellars "Red Paintbrush" Bordeaux blend paired Lago Rosso truffle from Chocolate Garden

  4. 2006 Gordon Brothers Gewürztraminer Icewine with Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue cow milk cheese

ENO is located at 505 N. Michigan Ave., inside the Intercontinental Hotel

The class will be an hour long, from 6 to 7pm.  The cost for the class and pairings is $25, and can be paid at ENO.  There will be limited space for the event, so make sure to RSVP by phone: 312.312.8738, or email: jennifer.bingham@ihg.com.

See you there!
