Chicago, IL– Wine lovers may prefer red or the white but one thing they can agree on is that the chance to taste a selection of excellent wines as selected by dedicated wine experts while enjoying a spectacular Chicago River cruise is an experience not to be missed!

Which explains the enduring popularity of Shoreline Sightseeing and Lynfred Winery's annual Wine Tasting Cruises which return this year for three special evenings on  Thursday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m., Friday August 11 at 8:00 p.m. and Thursday  September 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Wine tasting cruises will feature a short wine course presented by one of Lynfred's knowledgeable staff followed by generous tastings of a selection of fine wines accompanied by light refreshments, all while taking in remarkable views of  Chicago's dramatic skyline at night.
