Summer Brunch by Good Vines
Whether you’re a Chicago native or new to the city, we can all appreciate the ease and satisfaction of a great summer brunch. There is nothing quite like starting the day off with a seasonal cocktail and perfectly plated dish consisting of fresh produce and comfort food. Here at Good Vines, we have a few personal favorites, although not all of them feature our wine. Either way, we recommend you check out these hot spots with family and friends!
1. Tanta. The images featured throughout their website say it all, and if you’re looking for a dynamic and cultural experience then our friends at Tanta have the place for you. They also have one of the best rooftops in the area. Make sure to check out their website (but not on an empty stomach), and don’t forget to sneak a peak at the wine list!

4. NoMI at the Park Hyatt. A destination for locals and visitors alike, our friends at NoMI offer impeccable service alongside a diverse menu. Feeling adventurous? Choose something from their assortment of sushi, or just stick with the classic brunch essentials! They have both, and can be enjoyed in their outdoor garden.

Not feeling up to the challenge of rising out of bed? That’s okay, we’ve been there too. Substitute your favorite Mimosa, Bellini, or Sangria recipe with our Marzemino for a fun and imaginative take on the classic, and enjoy in the comfort of your own home!
