    FROM THE Winter 2017 ISSUE
     

What if there was a way to bring quality wines to events where it isn’t the star of the bar? Now there is! Tastings Vintage Wine Truck, owned by Tastings – A Wine Experience wine bar, is a mobile option out of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, that can hit the road to bring the finest varieties anywhere you need them. The 1952 International Harvester Metro underwent significant customization in 2015 to be outfitted with two wine-specific kegerators that dispense the finest vino from kegs instead of bottles. It has the capacity to provide up to eight kegs, or roughly 1,200 glasses of wine, for any event, “whether it be a black-tie gathering or more casual community event,” says owner Ross Bailey. “We can serve any environment, indoors or outdoors, with precise temperature-controlled servings. We also provide a knowledgeable staff that can speak intelligently and professionally about each variety.”

For nearly a decade, Elizabeth Tulipana, owner of Anticipation Events, of has been styling events throughout Chicagoland and beyond. We challenged her to put a new spin on the age-old buffet setup. The resulting ideas will have your guests clamoring to take both photos and bites. Forks up!
