Chicago Wine Fest, formerly the River North Wine Fest, features tastings of over 35 wines from around the world, including Spain, Italy and Romania. The event runs Dec. 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at Moe’s Cantina in River North.

We’re joined by fest organizer Lee Garber to discuss the event and wine culture. Jerome McDonnell will also clue us into more global events to check out this weekend.
