Chicago: Mustard Week Celebration

Date/Time

Apr 21, 2014 to Apr 25, 2014
06:00 PM

Description

Join both D.O.C. Wine Bar Lincoln Park and D.O.C. Wine Bar Lombard all week in celebrating the advent of the Mustard Season in Napa. The Mustard Season - formerly known as the slow season - is the handiwork of Mother Nature and, according to legend, the work of Franciscan Padre Father Junipero Serra. He scattered Spanish mustard seeds on his treck from southern to northern California; then followed a golden path of mustard in bloom back to the south.  Each year, about 90 days after our first autumn rains, mustard pushes through vineyard floors to lavishly embellish rows of resting vines with glorious riots of yellow blooms, filling the landscape with seas of golden froth. The scenery is breathtaking and sets the perfect stage for three months of grand wine, culinary, and artistic adventures.

 

Every Day of the Week: Free wine tastings at both D.O.C. Wine Bars between 6 pm to 7:30 pm. Tasting schedule is as follows:

 

Monday - Winebow

Tuesday - Pinnacle Wines

April 24: A Spring Mountain wine dinner will be featured at D.O.C. Wine Bar Lombard from 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm.  Experience an evening dedicated to wine and food exploration led by Tony Burger of D.O.C. Wine Bar and Lindsay McArdle of Spring Mountain Vineyard in Napa Valley.  “If you look close enough into the glass, you can learn about science, geology, geography, even history,” says Tony about wine tasting.  At the April 24th wine dinner, Lindsay and Tony will share insight on Spring Mountain’s lineup of world-class Cabs as well as an assortment of their other most renowned bottling (library options will be available for purchase).  This is an opportunity to enjoy top notch wines alongside a five-course Napa-inspired menu created exclusively to pair.  Tickets are $75 per person and seating is limited.  Call 630.627.6666 now to reserve your spot.
