To kick off the festival, Geja’s will host a special tasting open to the public featuring seven uniquely delicious Champagnes from Nicolas Feuillatte on Sunday, December 4th. The tasting begins at 1:00 p.m. and is $30 per person. The renowned Chicago opera singer, Laura Bonetti, will perform during the tasting.
Always demanding the best of the best, the grapes used to make Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne come from 13 of the 17 Grand Cru vineyards; 33 of the 42 Premier Cru; and 235 of the other Cru vineyards, out of a total of 321. This high quality no doubt accounts for the staggering sales that make Nicolas Feuillatte one of the top 5 brands of champagne in the world.
Every Tuesday in December through February, Geja’s patrons will receive 32% off any Feuillatte product in celebration of Geja’s 32nd annual Champagne Festival.
Known for romantic fondue dining–food one prepares and shares–and an extensive list of fine, moderately priced wines, Geja’s features over 20 different types of fondue entrees as well as cheese fondue and chocolate dessert fondue. An enchanting wine cellar atmosphere, private booths, and subdued lighting contribute to its intimate surrounding. Live flamenco and classical guitarists serenade diners on weekends.
