One of the first natural wine retailers in the US, Red & White has been open since 2008. In that time, our shop in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago has become a city-wide institution.

This little shop is the center of our world, and it has found its own place as a pole in our city.    


We represent vignerons who respect their land; winemakers who use no herbicides, pesticides or chemicals on their property. They harvest by hand, utilize only native yeasts in fermentation and minimize additions to their wines. Subtly guided by human touch, this sort of production process mirrors thoughtful farming. These wines speak of their origins by expressing vintage and reflecting environment.   


With a keen eye on the origins of our wines, beers and spirits, we aim to provide hospitable service in a comfortable setting.  


Our Wine Bar will be opening in 2017.


We are:

Nathan Adams (owner)

Cub Dimling (general manager)

Paul Courtright (retail manager)

Catie Olson (artist in residence)


Twice per week we host open house style tastings at the shop. We are often joined by winemakers, importers, friends and colleagues to pour their wines. These tastings have always been and will always be free, and open to the public.  

Join us Thursday evening from 5-8pm and Saturday afternoons from 2-5pm.

Join the club!
Our Wine Club is here!

Good afternoon!  We hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather.  

Today we are writing about the Red & White wine club.   After considering the best ways to execute our club, and after consulting with friends and colleagues who conduct wine clubs in other places, we have decided on the following format.   

  • Club members will receive three new wines each month.  These selections will be new to our shelves, limited releases from our favorite producers and unique direct imports brought in especially for the club. The trio is selected based on seasonality, dynamism and overall allure.  

  • Each month will include a newsletter about the featured wines and vignerons.   

  • We will host a “pick up party” the evening of the third Thursday of the month.  Members are able to taste the featured wines, have a snack at the bar and take their set home.   

  • The cost is $85 per month.  Membership is month-to-month and doesn’t require a long-term commitment.  If getting to the store is inconvenient for you, we are able to ship wines anywhere in Illinois.  

We are so excited to share the first three stellar wines with you all!  The first club pick up will be Thursday, June 22nd.

To sign up, simply reply to this email (at redandwhitewines@gmail.com).  We will follow up with you from there.  

We hope to see you soon - perhaps tonight before 8, over some rum!!
