The Twisted Vine
The Gourmet Grape, Inc. was opened as a wine and gift retail store in May 2003. After ten years as a retailer, it was transformed into a lounge style bar specializing in wine and whiskey. Completing the transformation during their ninth year, the business re-opened on their ten year anniversary as The Twisted Vine Chicago. During weekly two-hour tastings, they guide customers on a culinary tour across the globe, with stops including the United States, Chile, and New Zealand. Racks of fine international wines stock the shelves, as well as gourmet olive oils, vinegars, chocolates, tea, glassware, and decorative tableside accents. Although specializing in great wines and fantastic whiskey and scotch, a full bar is open to serve all your needs, and a few plates are available to order during your visit.
