Pics from September 2014 Taste at the Track

The start of fall means another fantastic day for Binny’s Taste at the Track at Arlington Park. What made this one different? Guests sampled from hundreds of domestic and international wines with special high-end, allocated wines, including Caymus, Silver Oak, Rombauer and Cakebread. French and Italian large format bottles were also a highlight. This event featured an expanded craft beer selection with 20+ beers, with food tastings from top Chicagoland restaurants including Jake Melnicks, Bar Toma, Café Spiaggia, Cowboy Grille and Mr. D’s Sports Bar.

Horse Racing!

 

Thanks to all who joined us at Arlington Park on Saturday for Binny’s Taste at the Track! We couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon, and the event was just spectacular. We listened to your feedback from the event back in June and made some major changes: almost twice as many tables, fewer tickets sold, more tents keeping the wine in shade, and more.

 

We’d love to hear about your experiences at Taste at the Track. Would you recommend the event to a friend? Did make any new discoveries? Find any new favorite wines? What were the best aspects of the afternoon, and what changes would you make?

 

Watch for more soon. Our events department is already hard at work lining up some amazing and ambitious tasting events for next spring!
