Twenty years ago, contemporary American cuisine was forever changed when Charlie Trotter opened his eponymous Chicago restaurant, catalyzing that city’s transformation into the dining mecca it is today. Creative and cerebral, Trotter turns out innovative and thoughtful cuisine that truly celebrates American food. Join us at our annual summer tasting party and silent auction as we toast this culinary icon with Champagne Charles Heidsieck® and the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard.
