The faintest hints of warmth are in the air and we’re all desperate to escape the bleak doldrums of the Chicago spring, which really is more like a late winter if we’re being honest.

And yet!

The Frontera team remains hard at work, making amazing use of seasonal ingredients and taking inspiration from their recent travels to Baja California, home to the beautiful Valle de Guadalupe and its fruit-forward, light-bodied wines.
