About Chicago Winery

Chicago Winery was founded in 2022 as the third outpost of First Batch Hospitality’s urban wineries, following in the footsteps of Brooklyn Winery (established 2010) and District Winery (established 2017). The building includes a 2,000-square-foot winemaking facility and barrel room, along with a four-season terrace. As one of the growing number of wineries in the Chicago area, we offer a unique Chicago venue for wine tastings, tours, weddings, and other special events.


About First Batch

The brainchild of co-founders John Stires and Brian Leventhal, First Batch Hospitality offers an accessible approach to wine and winemaking in urban environments. At the center of each of our locations is a wine production facility, along with private event spaces, an ingredient-driven food program, a tasting room, and opportunities to interact with the winemaking process through tours and classes.
