With more than 1,000 wines and spirits, Eataly Chicago's wine shop is easily accessible from the ground floor via our “vino-vator,” i.e., our wine elevator, which opens directly into our wine department. Displayed and divided according to the region of provenance, our wines and spirits span a vast selection of Italian excellence, from producers such as Fontanafredda, Borgogno, and Bastianich.
Vino Libero is a consortium of Italian wineries from the north to the south of Italy that are committed to "freeing" wine. They produce wine that is free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and 40% of added sulfites. Join us at our Vino Libero bar in Chicago to experience liberated wines alongside salumi and cheese.
After conquering the restaurant world, Joe Bastianich returned to his roots in northeast Italy. He and his team have worked to bring a focus to the Friuli region, creating wines that use indigenous grape varietals. Over the past 15 years, the resulting wines have garnered the respect of wine enthusiasts around the world.
Aware of the enormous potential of the Maremma region of southwest Toscana, Joe and Lidia Bastianich and Chef Mario Batali came together to create a new winery with a modern mission: to express this terroir to the fullest extent with new and exciting grape varieties.
Fontanafredda lies at the heart of Le Langhe in Piemonte, a hilly area dating back to ancient times that has always been a prime growing area for great wines. Their vineyards are located on gently contoured hillsides with rounded crests.
The name Borgogno is connected to one of the oldest wine cellars in Piemonte. Created in 1761 by Bartolomeo Borgogno, Borgogno has been crafting traditional wines for generations. We are proud to offer many back vintages of their Barolos, in addition to their other Piemontese specialities.
In the heart of La Morra in Piemonte, Agricola Brandini consists of organic vineyards that produce robust red wines such as Barolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto. The enologist Beppe Caviola stopped using selected yeasts and extractive enzymes in 2008, launching the company's organic certification process.
SERAFINI & VIDOTTO
The story of Serafini & Vidotto, located in the Veneto region in Nervesa della Battaglia, the heart of Gioiosa Marca Trevigiana, is one of passion and respect: a passion for the land and for the DOC sparkling, white, and red wines made by two friends, and respect for the territory and its rich traditions.
LE VIGNE DI ZAMO
The vineyards of Le Vigne di Zamò lie across some of Friuli's most prestigious subregions: Rossazzo, Rocca Bernarda, and Buttrio. Starting in 1924 with just an osteria, the Zamò family always had a passion for wine. Acquiring land throughout the years, they have a continued respect for the local grape varieties of the region that results in award-winning wines.
CANTINE DEL CASTELLO DI SANTA VITTORIA
Perched above the Tanaro River in the heart of the Roero lies Castello di Santa Vittoria. This area is known for its floral and aromatic wines, particularly Nebbiolo and Arneis. The sandy soils give wines a youthful, perfumed nose while retaining the structure that enables them to evolve for decades.
The Mirafiore estate was originally built in 1858 by King Vittorio Emanuele II, Italy's first king. The winery was established in 1878 by his son and became internationally renowned, only to disappear in the beginning of the twentieth century. Recently, Fontanafredda has helped re-establish Mirafiore both as a classic winemaking label and as a pioneer in eco-friendly production and packaging.
MASSERIA SAN MAGNO
Boasting a fully-restored nineteenth century wine cellar, the Masseria San Magno estate is located in the region of Puglia. The winery and production spaces cradle rolling vineyards growing Pugliese grape varieties, including Nero di Troia and Bombino Pampanuto.
CERTOSA DI BELRIGUARDO
Set in the timeless landscape of the Tuscan hills, Certosa di Belriguardo stands immersed in uncontaminated nature and in Tuscany's profound and ancient winemaking tradition. The production zone lies in the Chianti hills near Siena, an area dominated by the Sangiovese grape. Certosa has become one of the area's most original winemakers, and their wines perfectly express the land that has produced them.
