I strongly believe that wine education must be experiential and first-hand.
Orlando, FL (Vocus) July 29, 2009
The Capital Grille announced today the rare opportunity for an insider’s glimpse into the world of wine. For six weeks, beginning Monday, July 13, guests of The Capital Grille can enjoy an unprecedented wine tasting and pairing with their meal at this fine dining steakhouse.
Hand-selected by The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier George Miliotes, the wine tasting and pairing features four of the world’s most renowned wine regions. At the same time, patrons will have the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime – one of two week-long journeys to world-class wineries, with Miliotes as their personal guide.
The Capital Grille proudly boasts one of only 170 Master Sommeliers in the world. As The Capital Grille’s own Master Sommelier, Miliotes has created a special Master Wine Tasting Event menu exclusively for this fine dining steakhouse, featuring some of his favorite varietals from the world’s most desirable wine-growing regions.
“I strongly believe that wine education must be experiential and first-hand.” Miliotes observes. “Furthermore, we’re excited to share the unique opportunity to visit and discover two internationally renowned vineyards with the winning patrons.”
Wine and Dine at This Fine Dining Steakhouse and Win the Trip of a Lifetime
During the wine tasting and pairing event guests will have the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime. Guided by Miliotes, winners of the week-long, personalized wine trips will go behind-the-scenes and participate in the wine-blending process, even blending their own case to ship home.
The first insider’s wine experience in Argentina will include three days in the wine-growing region of Mendoza, touring vineyards, dining in the cellars, and working hand-in-hand with the Catena family to blend a Malbec to take home and enjoy. The first insider’s wine experience will also include two days in Buenos Aires, visiting cultural and night life attractions.
The second insider’s wine experience in Napa will include: visiting with industry insiders, vineyard tours, dinners at the wineries, massages, biking tours of the region and a private wine tasting and pairing experience at the Beringer winery, where winners will make their own case of Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet.
The Master Wine Tasting Event will take place from July 13 through August 23, for $10 at lunch and $25 at dinner. Each wine tasting and pairing will feature 11 to 12 selections.
