Join Slow Food Chicago and Eataly for a special aperitivo - traditional, Italian cocktail hour. Gather your friends after work and come unwind with Italian wine and appetizers before dinner.

The evening will feature four wines from the Vino Libero wine bar, which showcases wines and producers that uphold clean production methods. There will also be a buffet of traditional Italian antipasti such as salumi, cheese, focaccia and olives. Plus, a variety of Italian Slow Food Presidia products and American Ark of Taste products will be available for sampling.
