Bright Angel Wine Tasting at Main Street Social 
Bright Angel Wine Tasting

Tuesday, Jan. 30

Sip, eat and taste wines from the Napa and Sonoma vineyards. NIU alumni Ken Stemke, ’83, and Patrick Pipp, M.B.A. ’91, started Bright Angel Wines making wine in Napa with their initial release of two varietals in 2015.

They subsequently opened their Main Street Social restaurant in Libertyville in 2017 where Bright Angel leads a wine-centric Italian-American concept. The Bright Angel brand has grown to 10 varietals, from primarily Napa and Sonoma vineyards, including four house wines for the restaurant.

At this tasting, you will experience up to six Bright Angel wines and learn about the appearance, aroma and notes associated with each wine. Also, you will be able to enjoy appetizers provided by Main Street Social.

For more information or questions, please contact Assistant Director of NIU Foundation & Alumni Events Malerie Schumaker at or 815-753-5088.
