About The ShowMost of us don’t realize the strong relationship between music and wine! Genres like hip-hop, pop, jazz, folk and soul music often combine new and old music samples to create a fresh and engaging product. Wine draws on the same ideology, as it uses age-old techniques fused with new ideas and approaches to create something delicious in its youth and as it ages.
Certified Sommelier and a former Michelin Starred Beverage Director, Derrick C. Westbrook, will take you on a journey pairing unique wines with music reaching across genre & style. We created an event that brings the wine and music lovers together. This event is like your favorite blend, 33% Tasting, 33% Concert, 33% Wine Education, 1% Magic.
Hosted in City Winery’s intimate music venue, and alongside a live DJ, join us for a night of socializing and an exploration of various wines from Sommelier Derrick C. Westbrook. An evening paired with a great musical journey!
The ticket includes access to the event, a flight of wines and light bites served alongside the wines.
Before turning 30, Westbrook became the Cellar Manager of Alinea Group’s NEXT restaurant, and the Beverage Director of the Michelin-starred, Elizabeth restaurant in Chicago. The sommelier was later recognized for his professional contributions by Wine Enthusiast magazine as a 40 Under 40 Tastemaker, becoming the first African-American in the wine industry to grace the publication’s cover.
