    Lab
    Reserved for Premier-level Members and Sponsors, Premier Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Go to Napa—without the flight—with a virtual tour of the estate vineyards of Peju Province Winery and JWThomas Wines. Second-generation owner Lisa Peju and JWThomas Partner Steve Smith—whose families have over 60 years of combined experience in Napa Vally—will lead you through a wine tasting that demonstrates the effects of barrel aging and the imprint of vintage variation. You’ll then join world traveler Jon Harris, beverage manager at Virgin Hotels Chicago, for a wine cocktail mixing session followed by a tasting with Executive Chef Rick Gresh, who will walk you through his seasonal shared plate menu, including a tattoo lesson with his signature dish: truffle ink–tattooed rib eye steak. You’ll leave with a new perspective on the overall profile of wines, the proper foods to pair with your wines—and a taste for delicious wines.


    *You must be 21 or over to attend.


    *Premier Labs are available exclusively to Sponsors and to Members at the Producer level and above.
