Gene’s Sausage Shop, 4750 N. Lincoln Ave., is hosting wine tastings this weekend.
And while you’re there, of course grab a sample of some of their famous smoked meats.
Try wines from Chile on Friday 5 to 7 p.m. and wines from California and Argentina on Saturday 1 to 4 p.m.
And on Sunday, noon to 4 p.m., try organic, no sulfite wines from California.
If you’re driving, stick to the milk. Kilgus Farmstead from central Illinois will have dairy products available to sample, too.
