We love an evening at home with a good bottle of wine. And so, we have been doing a bit of digging to find the most fantastic wine shops in Chicago. Kafka is one. With over 250 wines under $15, the shop offers pairing suggestions (for cooking at home or taking to nearby Lakeview restaurants) and tasting events.
Most impressively, owners Michael Scharber and Joe Kafka have created a welcoming, fun, and successful shop (embarking on its third year anniversary) all without any advertising. Kafka tasting events to look for this month: Friday 10/6: Wines from Argentina, 7-9 pm, $10 Saturday 10/21: Architectural boat tour and wine tasting, 3:30 pm, $50 Saturday-Tuesday 10/28-10/31: Halloween Spooktacular / 3rd Anniversary Celebration at the shop Click on tasting/events for more details about these and future events.
