Like Mike Tyson, wine is usually robust, is often boxed, and should never influence tattooing decisions. Imbibe the spirit of a champion with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $19 for a Grand tasting session for two (up to a $50 value)

Held at the Village Community Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 10, the Lincolnwood Wine Fest affords visitors two days worth of enological activities. From open to close on both days, the Grand tasting serves up samples of hundreds of wines from around the world. A savory selection of cheeses and meats brings out the variety of flavors in the wine, and a crew of wine importers, sales associates, and wholesale proprietors remains on hand throughout the event to answer questions about the selections.
Those opting for the wine package can also broaden their grape-centric savvy during one of four seminars. On Saturday afternoon from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m., Patrick Fegan—director of the Chicago Wine School and a wine columnist for Examiner.com—helms the Wine Tour of France seminar that chronicles libations hailing from Bordeaux to the Loire Valley. Guests on Sunday can take in the World Cabernet Tour seminar from 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. wherein Heritage Wine Cellars LTD’s vice president, Scot Cohen, expounds upon various iterations of cabernet sauvignons produced in vineyards around the globe.
