DOWNTOWN — City Winery is debuting seven wines inspired by Chicago neighborhoods.
The wines feature flavors and labels inspired by their neighborhoods: The Andersonville wine label has the iconic Swedish flag water tank while Wrigleyville’s label shows off Wrigley Field’s famous board.
The wines were created by City Winery’s own designer, Sarah Foote, of West Town, according to a news release.
“Each wine has been carefully crafted to best represent the flavors of each Chicago neighborhood,” according to City Winery.
