  1. Just thought you might be interested to know that Geja’s Café in Chicago is featuring what they call their Midwest Wine Fest. Check out their wine selections from IL, MI, WI and OH – They will be offering these wines by the glass and bottle through August. Geja’s always tries to keep a few Midwest surprises on their list! They may be a Chicago icon, but are also Midwest wine trendsetters.
