Spring is supposedly here! If you’re a skeptic like me with the Chicago weather though, I wait until at least early May to retire my snow boots for the season. On that note, this is the last time I will use “spring” in this post, as to not jinks ourselves and have a winter weather advisory by next week.
Anyhow, the weather is supposed to be beautiful tomorrow (Saturday) for our APRIL tasting! What better way to spend the weekend than to come to TVC and meet winemaker Bill Wolf from Eagle Eye, and try over 50 wines from all over the world? I can’t think of anything better to do…
Bill and Roxanne Wolf make wine and olive oil in the Napa Valley. Together with their winemaker, John Gibson, they produce limited quantities of high quality wines and blends. The Eagle Eye brand was created from the couples love of wine, food, and art.
Eagle Eye’s wines are incredibly popular at TVC. We currently offer Eagle Eye Infatuation by the glass, and have various other blends to offer by the bottle. Stop in Saturday to meet Bill, taste his wines, and hear the story from Bill himself!
The tasting runs from 1pm to 5pm. Only $5 per person to try over 50 wines, and meet Bill.
Hope to see you there!
But we are ready for the weekend! It’s been a cold week here in Chicago, and The Village Cellar will be heating up with tons of activity this weekend!
On Saturday, February 23 from 1pm-5pm, come into TVC and taste over 50 wines at our Big Big Red Tasting. We will also have special guest Jack Galante, winemaker from Galante Vineyards, in our store pouring his wines!
If that’s not enough activity for you, then stick around for the live music by Sean Skyler! Starting at 7pm, Sean will fill the place with music from the 80’s, 90’s and today. Come on in and enjoy a bottle of wine or craft beer and listen to great music!

Winter is starting to rear its ugly head. It’s getting cold out there.
But in just a few days on Saturday, January 19, The Village Cellar will be hosting the world premier of Thomas Fogarty’s Gist Ranch Cabernet Franc 2007. Yup – You read that right.
The Village Cellar will be the first to release it to the public. That in itself is something to raise your glass to.
You can also meet Thomas in person and have him sign any bottles you purchase. He even may be willing to take a picture or two with you!
