GSC Wine Tasting & Dinner

August 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Italy is renowned for art, architecture, beautiful scenery, and delicious food and wine. Join the Geographic Society of Chicago as we sample Italian wines from different regions, paired with an exquisite three course meal from the team at Hearth & Crust.

Certified sommelier Clara Orban will introduce winemaking in Italy, its history and geography, and highlight the regions that produced the wines you will sample. She will also say a few words about the wines themselves as you enjoy this convivial evening of “la dolce vita.”

ABOUT HEARTH & CRUST

Hearth And Crust, located in the Irving park neighborhood opened July 2017. Helmed by restaurateurs, Chef Jose “Chepe” Garcia and Eileen Garcia. After finding success in Logan Square with Buona Terra, opened in 2002, they looked for a location that was convenient to where they lived and underserved by restaurants. Irving park seemed like the right fit. Since then, the community has responded with resounding support.
