Webster’s has long had a reputation for a comprehensive, global wine list that appeals to both novice and connoisseur alike. I wanted to continue this tradition with a wine program that is informed by a desire to share wines that show a strong sense of their place of origin. Authentic wines made with minimal intervention that are capable of conjuring joy and stimulating conversation. I want to remove the stuffiness often associated with wine and let guests revel in pure fermented grape juice.

News and Events


A Night of Burgundy with Bonhomie Imports – December 10th

jerome-fornerot-burgundy-france-2010-galleryBonhomie means conviviality and a pervasive sense of jovial camaraderie. It is the stories that we tell one another that connect us and enhance our life’s experiences, our appreciation of our fellow human’s endeavors and the world we live in. Emerging from 15 years of working in food and wine in New York and New Jersey, Charles Woods began his own boutique company in 2008 with the mission to find traditional estates in France, Italy and Germany who produce wine that sing of their origins.  He believes in wine sourced from small farmers who do things by hand, value the wines birth in the vineyard and with a deep connection to their regional traditions. While not content with the term ‘natural wine,’ for its vagueness and broad connotations, Charlie prefers to let the wines and the producers tell the story themselves, and that they do.

Please join us as we host Charles and pour a selection from his Burgundy portfolio at special pricing.

Thursday December 10th 7-11 pm

No cost for admission, price is based solely on consumption.

Aug 6th – Atlas Brewing Tap Takeover

We’ll be featuring the fantastic beers of Atlas Brewing here at Webster Wine Bar. Atlas Brewing Company based here in Chicago is making thoughtful, balanced beers that we couldn’t be happier to share.

The Lineup on Draft:
Satellite of Love Hoppy Pale Wheat Ale (5.6% ABV)11230649_10152916557576916_6866805185523773704_n
This single-hop pale wheat ale was brewed with Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. Hoppy notes of gooseberry, citrus, and sage are complemented by a subtle maltiness.

Sauternes Barrel Polish Falcon Baltic Porter (9.6% ABV)
Eight months in a Sauternes barrel gave our strong porter unique notes of honey and oak that perfectly complement its flavors of toffee, dark fruit and chocolate.
