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!
