Avli: Meet The Greeks in Chicago

  • Avli 566 Chestnut St. Chicago United States (map)

Join us on the first day of spring for our very first Greek wine dinner with Eklektikon! The dinner will feature four-courses paired with six natural, handcrafted wines from artisnal growers in Greece who farm their own all-natural grapes.

The all-inclusive dinner is $60 per person on Wednesday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m.

Eklektikon was launched in 2011 with the vision of creating a bridge between “Greek tradition” and the US market, expressed through handcrafted natural Greek wines. They work with small-batch artisanal growers around the country, who manually farm their own grapes, using organic and biodynamic practices. They stress that vinification is of minimal intervention, using old and time-tested methods of regional tradition. The wines that comprise Eklektikon’s portfolio, are natural for a reason, and in specific ways. They are wholesome and nutritious, being free of any harmful additives, and made from organic or biodynamic grapes. They authentically express the history and tradition of the micro-region they come from, following hands-off and traditional practices. They promote biodiversity, coming from various corners of isolated lands and made from numerous indigenous grapes.
