Wine Riot: Wine 101

May 30, 2012 10:10:58 AM PDT
With summer fast approaching, many Chicagoans can't wait to pop the cork on a bottle of wine (or two).

Open air concerts at Ravinia, dozens of street festivals around the city, and patio cook outs are just a few of the summer events where wine is enjoyed.

Tyler Balliet discusses pouring a white versus a red versus a pink at this weekend's Wine Riot. With two parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented "wine tasting" for the thirsty and curious. There will be 250 wines from around the world for tasting.
