Windy City Tour Company

About Us




Welcome to Windy City Wine Tours.  We are Chicago's experts on the Wine Country around Chicago and other parts of the Midwest!  We now also offer tours to craft breweries and distilleries as well.

My name is Dileep Gangolli, and along with my wife Janice MacDonald, we operate Windy City Wine and Beverage Tours to share our love and passion of wine, beverages, and food with others that want to explore and learn about the beverage industry here in the Midwest.

I am an avid winemaker and have been making wine as a hobbyist for over five years.  In 2013, we started our own wine brand, Forty Winks, and distribute our portfolio to restaurants and retailers around the Chicago area.  Our wines are made from grapes sourced in the Midwest.

Janice and I are both musicians and private music instructors during the academic year.  Among the groups we perform with are the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Chicago Philharmonic, the Joffrey Ballet Orchestra, and the Lake Forest Symphony Orchestra.  

The bulk of our business is during the summer months (between Memorial Day and Labor Day).  But if you are visiting Chicago or have a special event such as a birthday or wedding party, we can arrange a private tour tailored to your specifications.

Please call our office at 847.902.0733 to learn more about our offerings.

We look forward to taking you to Wine Country!
