Friday, Laima and I had the opportunity to attend the Goldmine Of Planet Bordeaux Wines, on the Willis Tower's 99th floor Skydeck. Beyond tasting many incredible wines, the event organizers also took us up to the 103rd floor to step out over Chicago in the Ledge boxes -- great fun. Marc Witham led a tasting workshop that emphasized three things you need to remember about Bordeaux wines: value, value, and value. Bordeaux is more than just First Growths requiring fat wallets. Many producers produce less expensive wine for export to the U.S. -- no wines at the tasting were more than $15 or so, surprising to many, I'm sure. An afternoon of great wines, great views, tasty food -- looking forward to the next opportunity to work with this great organization.
