The Generous Pour Wine Event at The Capital Grille runs July 9 – September 2. This event features a spectacular sampling of nine outstanding wines for only $25.00.

This event is amazing and if you are wine lover it is well worth attending. The wines are delicious and the pours are generous! I had the chance to sample these wines along with a wonderful dinner courtesy of The Capital Grille.

The evening started with a Lunetta Rose which was paired with a seared scallop.This wine was a little bubbly and very crisp.

The white wines featured were a Simcic, Rebula from Slovena and a Gary Farrell Chardonnay.  Both were delicious. The Simcic is made with leaving in the tannins which adds some color and rich flavor.

The red wines included Conn Creek Anthology, Ferrari Carano, Chateau Du Pin, Falesco, Assisi Rosa and Villa Mt Eden. All of the reds accompanied the meal delightfully.  I chose lamb and a side of the creamed corn with bacon. The Chateau Du Pin was very rich and paired nicely with the smokey flavor in the corn.

The Creamed Corn with bacon is prepared fresh at the restaurant and is so delicious. As you can see by the picture the kernels are cut fresh off the cob! This has become my new favorite side!

The dessert wine featured was Kanu Kia-Ora.  I love sweet wines and this one was right up my alley.  I must admit I do not know too much about wine and attending these events helps me understand and appreciate all the detail that goes in to making them. Plus it gives me the opportunity to taste and broadens my selections the next time I am searching for a wine to buy.

All of the wines featured at this event are outstanding. It is well worth the visit.  I wish to thank The Capital Grille for treating me to this event and I enjoyed it so much I am planning a visit back before September 2 to experience it again at my own expense, $25.00 for all those wines is a steal!

The Generous Pour Wine Event – just $25 per person at dinner from July 9 to September 2.

The Generous Pour Wine Event offers guests an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy generous pours of as many of the featured wines as they choose and the event exemplifies the expert, personalized service that The Capital Grille is known for.  Guests will be guided through the experience, with suggested pairings and wine tasting notes for each course ordered.
Each wine was chosen from unique vineyards around the world by The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier, George Miliotes, one of only 186 in the world.  “I selected the wines for the Generous Pour Wine Event, relying on favorites from unique vineyards that I enjoy in my own personal cellar.”  Allowing guests to experience the wine paired with food, tasting notes and expert guidance from our servers, adds depth to the experience that a traditional tasting event would not provide.  The best way to learn about wine is to drink it!”
The Generous Pour Wine Event introduces guests to some of the season’s newest wine trends, while also offering hard-to-find varietals and known favorites.  Highlights from this summer’s signature collection of choice whites and reds are:
·         Conn Creek Anthology, Cabernet, 2007 – The finest vintage of the last 50 years for Cabernet in Napa, this robust blend of Bordeaux grapes from 13 of the region’s top vineyards is Conn Creek’s crowning jewel.  A rich and creamy wine to complement dry aged steak.
·         Ferrari-Carano Mountain Reserve, Cabernet, 2008 – The Capital Grille is proud to be hosting the exclusive debut of Mountain Reserve from Ferrari-Carano.  With a mixture of aromas and a long, dry finish, this bold Alexander Valley Cabernet is the perfect accompaniment for Kona Crusted Dry Age Sirloin.
·         Simčič, Rebula, 2008/09 – Available exclusively at The Capital Grille, this wine, also known as “Orange Wine,” is a 1,000 year-old style of wine production making a comeback.  Highly aromatic, it is an ideal companion for appetizers and light fish dishes.
·         Villa Mt. Eden Grand Reserve, Pinot Noir, 2007 One of Master Sommelier George Miliotes personal favorites, this silky and smooth wine, boasting flavors of strawberry, cherry, and toffee, pairs beautifully with Cedar Planked Salmon with Tomato Fennel Relish.
