Phase One of the Capital Grille's summertime Master Wine Tasting Event,
which runs through September 5, includes Napa Valley wines such as Bancroft
Ranch Merlot from Beringer Vineyards; a Cabernet Sauvignon from Sella
& Mosca Marchese di Villamarina; and Pinot Noir along with other
varietals from Villa Maria Cellar Selection of New Zealand. The second
session takes place July 26 through September 5 and highlights Napa
Valley Chardonnay from Cambria Winery and Vineyards; wines from Spain,
including a Jorge Ordoñez Muscat Alexandra; and several wines from
Australia, including the Chook Sparkling Shiraz.
Grille staff will help guide guests through the sampling, present them
with tasting notes from George Miliotes, and will prepare custom
flights for guests particularly interested in comparing and contrasting
similar varietals from the regions being presented. The price is right too:
"generous pourings" of up to 11 wines for $25.
