BEVERAGES FOR YOUR HOLIDAY BUSINESS DINNER – SPIRITS AND WINE. BLOG POST #3

How to Select the Perfect Wine List; Tips from Everest Chicago’s Sommelier

Everything for your corporate business party is coming together. The space has been booked, you’ve created the perfect menu and now it’s time to pair the wines. Chef Joho and Everest’s Sommelier discuss the selection of beverages you can tailor to your group.

Begin the evening with a libation that’ll excite the palate without fatiguing it early on in the evening. Chef Joho’s Alsace Negroni is one of the sommelier’s favorite cocktails to start out with. Get the recipe from our Summer Dinner Series post. The negroni will awaken your taste buds to prepare for the meal to come. Or consider passed Alsace champagne to greet your guests as they arrive. As our sommelier says, “when in doubt, serve bubbles.”

At Everest Restaurant in Chicago, Chef Joho is all about glamour and style. He says if you’re serving wines for a larger group, it’s best to go go big for that wow factor. Here’s some reasons why selecting a few large format wines for your group is worth it: it’s an attention grabber, creates a more welcoming environment, and they can be more economical. When your guests walk into your private room and see a three liter bottle of wine, all eyes are on that bottle!

Our team of party experts leave no stone unturned. Complete the evening with a glass of Eau de Vie; a clear, unsweeted fruit brandy with an incredible aroma and taste, that quickly transports you to an orchard in Alsace.   Other options to top off the night are a nice vintage Port, such as Warres 1994, or a single malt, such as Macallan 18yr.

Make your corporate holiday event in Chicago one to remember. Enhance those memories with the beauty of Chef Joho’s french cuisine and curated wine selection. Enjoy the flavors that you’ll experience.  Joyeuses Fetes!
