Taste of Lincoln Wine Tasting

2:00-5:00 p.m. both days

A tasting within a ‘Taste’! This year’s Taste of Lincoln Avenue is about to get a little classier with the debut of a special wine tasting area at the fest. Located at Lincoln Avenue and Montana, wine aficionados (and the wine-curious) can sample up to 15 varietals from both the U.S. and around the world.

The cost of a daily tasting pass for this stand-alone VIP area within Taste of Lincoln Avenue is $30. It’s the perfect way to mellow out, yet still savor the crowds, the music and excitement at one of Chicago’s premier summer street happenings!
