I would like to start by giving a big thank you to the amazing staff at @lynfredwinery I had the privilege of experiencing a beautiful and delicious VIP tasting in their Members Only Founders Lounge. I have been visiting @lynfredwinery for years now because i truly enjoy their wines, so when this invite came about i was extremely happy. Every time i go i’m reminded why i love it so much. Something that stood out to me was the attention to detail throughout this venue, for instance the staircase leading up to the Founders Room is just WOW❤️so stunning all of that wood work. Once you’re up there the vibe is very relaxed and inviting. The staff was incredibly nice, helpful and very knowledgeable. If you haven’t paid them a visit make sure to do so. They offer daily wine tastings from 10-6:15pm at the Roselle location, no reservations needed and it’s only $11 for non members. They have multiple locations you can visit make sure to check their site. Perfect Date Night or Ladies Night. Cheers! 🍷 #SuburbanFoodie Thank You!😘 . . . . . . . . #chicagosuburbs #chicagoburbs #yelpchicagoburbs #lynfredwinery #roselleil @rosellemainstreet #winelovers #f52gramsfoodpic #chicagosbesttv #chicagofoodanddrink #chicagofoodie #chicagofoodmag #chicagowine #belongsonyelp #timeoutchicago #bestfoodchicago #localwine #chicagoeats #winesnob #chicagobucketlist #winesofinstagram #winetasting #wineenthusiast #chicagofoodauthority #eattheburbs #eaterchicago #wineconnoisseur #vipexperience #winestagram #chicagofoodbloggers
