Taste history at an unforgettable evening of wine, design and music to celebrate Jordan Winery’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon—our first vintage aged in all French oak. Hosted by Jordan’s Rob Davis, this festive evening features a one-of-a-kind Jordan wine “hive” created from 231 wine barrel staves by Chicago’s DMAC Architecture and artist Randy Davidson of Restoration Creative—an incredible sculpture that doubles as a wine bar. The hive’s cylindrical design pays homage to the intersection of science and art in winemaking, inspired by the molecular structure of wine and its energy, and one lucky bidder will take the hive home at the end of the evening. With panoramic views of the Chicago River and the city’s skyline, The Rooftop at Gibsons Italia—which won Chicago’s 2018 Eater Award winner for Most Beautiful Restaurant of the Year—offers the perfect backdrop for this cocktail-style reception filled with wine, food, music and design.

Event highlights:

  • Pours of the Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble, 2017 Jordan Chardonnay, 2015 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon in magnum
  • Tastes of a special never-released bottling served from the “hive”
  • Tastes of the 2015 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon from a rare 18-liter “Melchior” bottle paired with two artisanal products made with historic vintage: a cow’s milk cheese made by local Caputo Cheese Market and a salame buio by Sonoma County’s Journeyman Meat Co.
  • An array of Gibsons Italia’s signature dishes, from salmon crudo and crabmeat avocado parfait to bruschetta and meatballs
  • Live performance by Chicago’s own Rachel Barton Pine, internationally acclaimed violinist and philanthropist
  • An auction of the wine barrel “hive” with all proceeds benefiting the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation
