There is only one event each year that combines three of my favorite things: wine, food, and home furnishings I can dream about having for my future home someday! LuxeHome®, in partnership with Wine Spectator Magazine is hosting its tenth annual CHILL, an international wine and culinary event featuring some of the best wines from vineyards worldwide, being paired with small bites from some of Chicago’s most distinguished chefs. The best part is that you get to wine and dine your way around the Merchandise Mart’s collection of premier boutiques for home building and renovation all in the name of charity.
Last Thursday I had the chance to attend LuxeHome’s Sixth Annual CHILL International Wine and Culinary festival! 40 different restaurants and their chefs, as well as winemakers worldwide shared their best eats and drinks amongst the world’s largest collection of premier boutiques for home building and renovation (aka amazing luxury home items I will NEVER be able to afford) at the Merchandise Mart. Proceeds from the event went to benefit three great charities: Respiratory Health Association, Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the Lynn Sage Foundation.
I went to CHILL last year as well, and this year there were even more great restaurants and Chefs, take a look below for my favorite CHILL bites!
