Grape Crush at a tavola

  • a tavola 2148 West Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

Kick off your shoes, stomp grapes and enjoy an evening of authentic Italian food

We will be crushing grapes on our patio with winemaker Greg Fischer for your very own wine

We will make one barrel with juice and grapes that will be good for early drinking. This barrel we will be crushing grapes, mixing the juice and adjusting the sugars (Brix). We will be pitching yeast and adding oak to start the fermentation process. The must will be taken to the winery for fermentation and the wine will be released in March of 2016.

We will also crush another 1000 Ls of Sangiovese, Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon for a blend that will age at least 1 year in the barrel.

We will have a Grape Stomping Contest that will consist of 4 to 5 vats. Grape stompers will crush grapes for 2 minutes with music. The juice will be measured after stomping and the stomper with the most juice wins!

Barrels, cases, and bottles of a tavola private label wine will be available for you to reserve.
