Photos: The Capital Grille's Generous Pour Wine Event

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 5:23 PM

The Capital Grille has officially launched their Generous Pour Wine Event, which is running July 12 though September 4, 2011. The new event invites guests to pair their dinner with however many of the nine wines picked for Generous Pour wine menu for a price of $25. It is pretty generous, huh? (Read more about the event here.)

I attended a preview event Monday night during which I, along with other food writers around the nation, attended a webcast with their Master Sommelier George Milotes. George introduced the nine wines he carefully selected for the Generous Pour Wine Event, which includes both new and vintage wines from around the globe. It took him one year to develop this specific wine menu (!). George also surprised us by saying it is now hip among sommeliers to serve red wine with seafood. For The Capital Grille's Cedar Planked Salmon, he recommends both the Byron Pinot Noir and the Chateau St. Jean, Belle Terre.

During the preview event, I was also lucky enough to sample the wines paired with a multitude of hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, sides, and desserts. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about all the wines and was able to suggest excellent pairings for us.

I've broken it all down though photos...
