On September 14, Waterleaf will host its second annual wine and food festival on the patio and grounds adjacent to the restaurant. This special wine and food festival is presented by the Daily Herald.
This festival will feature wines selected by the small, family-owned distributor Heritage Wine Company. With over 100 uncommon wines, guests will get to sample varietals that may expand their repertoire. With a focus on smaller wineries from around the world, guests will experience unusual labels they may not find in area stores or restaurants.
Jean Pierre Leroux, General Magager of the Waterleaf Restaurant believes that "This event will feature many wines that consumers haven't had a chance to sample. Our Festival is an opportunity to expose guest to, many varietals, blends and, regions they may not yet have explored, and a restaurant they may not yet have visited. Waterleaf is all about delicious food and great wine, and our festival is the perfect showcase to share our passion with our guests."
In addition to the unparalleled wine selection, guests will dine on food stations prepared by Waterleaf Executive Chef Nadia Tilkian. Specialty pizzas and pastry selections will be prepared by College of Dupage culinary students. While dining, guests will enjoy live music by the Shawn Maxwell Trio and Steve Ramsdell.
