Alpana Singh Makes Two Illinois Wine Selections For Big Bowl

September 1, 2010 at 10:09 am

Local wine takes a big step into the mainstream as Alpana Singh, Master Sommelier and Director of Wine and Spirits for Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, Inc., selected two Illinois wines for inclusion on the wine list of local Big Bowl restaurants. The first is August Hill Winery’s Seyval Blanc — which I wrote about awhile back on The Local Beet. The second is a very climate-appropriate Cabernet Franc by Prairie State Winery in Genoa, Illinois. Both wines are produced from grapes grown in Illinois, and will be available at Big Bowl’s Chicago, Lincolnshire and Schaumburg locations.
