Getting to Know MeEvie started out in broadcast journalism and after many years as a broadcaster, she was bitten by the wine bug. Wanting to fully immerse herself in the industry she worked for some of Chicago's best wine shops and eventually enrolled in the Wine and Spirits Education Trust of London, England. Extremely knowledgeable and personable, Evie prides herself with her ability to connect with people. As a former Chicago Luvabull, Evie's love for dance was soon matched by her love for wine and Chicago! There is so much to explore; Evie welcomes the opportunity to share the best Chicago has to offer, through her wine tasting experience.
Wine and DinePrivate tasting at a local establishment in the West loop. Wines will center around a theme, to be determined but may include Old World vs New World, Iberian Peninsula, or French Odd-balls. Participants will taste through 4 to 5 flights and will receive the history and back story of each wine. In addition to wine there will be cheeses and charcuterie.
Wine list will be provided so participants can use to purchase wines in the future.
After the private tasting, parties of 4 or fewer are welcome to extend their experience and join Evie for a glass of wine at another nearby establishment.
