A taste of France comes to the wine lounge ENO via its ENOversity designed for wine novices and aficionados. Set in a casual atmosphere at the Fairmont Chicago in Millennium Park on 200 N. Columbus Drive, the educational series features the class Viva La France at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 15 when students will taste Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Rhone, France’s best wines.
The ENOversity offers interactive, and unpretentious instruction on the dynamics of wine, cheese and chocolate by some of Chicago’s skilled winemakers, sommeliers, cheese makers and chocolatiers. Classes explore the histories, types and flavors of exquisite wines by suggesting cheese and chocolate pairings, each individually chosen to complement the night’s unique wine selections.
Additional upcoming classes include:

ENO’s global wine list touts 300 to 500 different bottles, with 60 wines available by the glass and 20 available by flight. Each of the flights contain tastings that can focus on anything—from three Pinot Noirs from the same valley to three Chardonnays from the same year. ENO’s chocolate menu spotlights a selection of handmade truffles and bars from local chocolatiers, served in pieces or by flight. The lounge’s menu also highlights cheeses from small producers around the world, including a number of Midwest-sourced varieties. ENO is open Sunday through Saturday, from 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
