CHICAGO ( April 27, 2018 ): In its 12th year, the Andersonville Wine Walk will once again invite guests to walk, sip, and shop their way through the commercial district on Sunday, May 20 from 3-6PM, but this year, the event is undergoing a growth spurt. Instead of the two routes of years past, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce ( ACC ) has expanded the offerings this year to include a third route of tasting destinations for visitors.

"It is an exciting time in Andersonville, with many new businesses opening," says Laura Austin, ACC Community and Events Manager. "We are so fortunate to be able to welcome ten new businesses into this event, eight of which opened in 2017-18 season."

The event will feature 30 of Andersonville's businesses ( 10 per route ) including event newcomers: Chicago Magic Lounge, Strange Cargo Tees, Foyer Shop, Lakeshore Dental Studio, Chicago Mindful Psychotherapy, Hutch American Kitchen + Bar, Transit Tees, Transistor, Clark Haus, and Cowboys and Astronauts.

Local wine shop and event sponsor, In Fine Spirts, curates the majority of the wine for the event, with expert wine educators staffing the pouring tables at each location. The Guesthouse Hotel will also participate again this year, but with their own curation of wines, as the hotel is able to sell their own bottles with a newly obtained liquor license.

"We always look forward to this event because we get the opportunity to meet and thank so many of our neighbors that have contributed to the success of the hotel," says Rick Verkler, General Manager of The Guesthouse Hotel. "We also have the chance to introduce our property to a whole new audience that may have never discovered us unless coming on the wine walk. We'll be pouring some fantastic wines from boutique wineries located in both the US and France, including a really special rosé just in time for summer."
