This post has been in que for quite some time. My only explanation is that my pictures, for lack of a better word, suck. I wanted to draw more customers in rather than scare them away with my bad lighting and blurry photos. Beyond the pictures that you see, you should know that every Wednesday here in Elgin, Solo offers what they call “Wine Down Wednesdays.” For $10 you get to sample 6-8 wines. They also include wonderful flat breads with salty prosciutto and peppery arugula and goat cheese puffs. The apps and wine change each week.
If you get a chance to talk to the owner and if he happens to also be pouring the wine that evening (lucky you!) then you should ask him any questions you have about the wine. He is extremely knowledgable and eager to talk about his passion for wine. Of course, his French accent might deter your ability to focus on exactly what he is saying the entire time. It’s all good! Keep drinking and smiling and asking more questions.
Let me know what you think of Solo if you go and heck, let me know! I’d love to go with you.

Cheers my dears!
