This family-owned, neighborhood wine shop’s beautiful chandeliers, arched white shelves and terracotta tile floors seem better suited for an Italian villa (think Under the Tuscan Sun) than frigid Chicago. Weekly wine tastings each Thursday beckon boozers and schmoozers upstairs to the tasting room balcony to mingle and try several (complimentary) wines. For those more into grains than grapes, there’s a decent selection of imported and domestic craft beers.
