Full menu available. Reservations available online at or via 773-348-4600

Greg La Follette is an international winemaking consultant in Sonoma. He is the winemaker other winemakers look to for help and guidance. His resume of wineries he has worked with is really too long to list - but a few notables are Beaulieu (BV) where he worked with Andre Tchelistcheff, Jarvis, Kendall-Jackson, La Crema, Flowers, De Loach, and of course La Follette. Alquimista is his latest venture specializing in first-class Sonoma vineyards. Greg is a bit of a "science" guy and I don't believe there is anyone out there who knows more about winemaking and biodynamic farming. He is also featured in two movies: SOMM: In the Bottle on Netflix, and a newly released documentary Andre-The Voice of Wine, which is about Greg's mentor Andre Tchelistcheff. Alquimista specializes in Pinot and Chardonnay sourced from some of the best sites up and down Sonoma County. He also bottles several less common varietals that he finds interesting. Alquimista Cellars is a very small producer and can only be found in Illinois at fine restaurants and Country Clubs.
