The Capital Grille Stamps out Childhood Hunger with Share Our Strength…and a Bottle of Cab Sauv

1 Mar

George Miliotes with The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon

Kristien and I are big fans of wine.  We try to check out as many vineyards as we can during the year, especially when we are on vacation.  Believe it or not, we’ve actually created our own wines, too:  first a Cabernet Sauvignon and just this past summer, a Super Tuscan.  So, when The Capital Grille wrote us and told us about their Third Annual Artist Series Wine Event, we knew we had to share the details with you.

Starting March 19 at The Capital Grille in Stamford and other locations, you’ll be able to buy a limited production of their Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon and $25 of the $75 cost will go directly to Share Our Strength.  Share Our Strength is an amazing charity that is doing its part to stamp out hunger in children.  They are a great organization to support and to follow by e-mail or twitter.  Under 1,000 cases were produced, so be sure to get into The Capital Grille to take advantage of this great offer.

This unique and limited pressing was produced at Freemark Abbey Winery (in Napa Valley) in collaboration with Ted Edwards and George Miliotes.  George is one of only 186 Master Sommeliers in the world and is also the Master Sommelier for The Capital Grille.  Only a master could put together an impressive wine menu that spans 350 different bottles from around the world.

Another really great thing about this bottle is the art work on the outside.  Artists were asked to submit their own labels and the winning painting was “Complexity,” by Julie Agee from Missouri.  You can see it on the header picture, above, and in person when you buy the bottle. ;)

So, when you head into The Capital Grille, order this bottle and enjoy the good stuff:  the wine and the good feeling that comes with helping out.  The knowledgeable servers will be able to help you to pair your meal with the Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon, so get ready for an amazing meal.  A beautifully cooked steak and some fresh seafood awaits you, amigo.
