Carlei will be showcasing his two excellent labels, Carlei Estate and Carlei Green Vineyards, and Chef Brunacci of Sixteen, the hotel’s famous restaurant, will be preparing a decadent five-course menu to accompany the wines.
Carlei’s philosophy is that environmentally responsible viticulture is the best course for winemaking: “Soil to a vine is like blood to a human being. We know that toxins in the blood lead to all sorts of health problems in people and the same holds true for plants – toxic soil leads to improper vine health. Most importantly, cleaner vineyards allow the true flavors in the fruit to be expressed, which results in better tasting, more balanced wines.”
Be sure to call the restaurant at (312) 588-8030 to make a reservation if you want to take advantage of this excellent food and wine event in Chicago!
Sixteen was designed by Ivanka Trump and Chicago-based architects Valerio Dewalt Train Associates. It’s found on the 16th floor of the Trumpt International Hotel and Tower Chicago.
The Trump is one of the best luxury hotels in Chicago, and is found right in the heart of the city. It opened in January 2008 and features 339 guestrooms. The hotel also has a spa, a health clab and a chic cocktail lounge called Rebar.
