Join Chicago-based hospitality company DineAmic Group for their 3rd annual Somm Madness event. Somm Madness brings together the nation's sommelier community and wine afficionados for a blind tasting tournament. Sixty-four individuals will go head-to-head to advance to the championship round with the ultimate hope of taking home the grand prize.

The night kicks off with the Tailgate Tasting, a pre-party to the main Somm Madness tournament. Ticketholders will have access to over 200 wines in a walk-around tasting as well as a grand display of endless bites provided by Prime & Provisions. Wineries include some of the most iconic names in the world.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to the James Beard Foundation's Impact Programs.
