The Capital Grille, has announced the return of their annual Artist Series Wine Event: a unique celebration of the worlds of fine art and winemaking, featuring an exclusive, limited allocation wine adorned with an original piece of artwork as its label.
Beginning on March 21, The Capital Grille offered an exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon during their second annual Artist Series Wine Event. The wine will be available exclusively at the Los Angeles and the Costa Mesa locations as well as other The Capital Grilles across the U.S. The coveted vintage is not sold at retail. The company will donate $25 from the sale of each limited bottle to national charity Share Our Strength® in support of its mission to end childhood hunger in America.
The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon was hand-crafted by Thomas Peffer, a world-class winemaker from Atalon Vineyards in Napa Valley, with the help of The Capital Grille’s George Miliotes, one of only 170 Master Sommeliers in the world. The grapes used were from specially selected vineyards in Napa Valley whose high elevation and unique microclimate result in the perfect conditions for creamy, boldly textured flavors. Blended solely for The Capital Grille, fewer than 1,000 cases of this unique wine will be produced.
“We are committed to providing a distinctive, accessible and personal wine experience,” said Miliotes. “We created The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon to give our guests an incomparable opportunity to experience a magnificent vintage with ripe fruit flavors, prominent tannin and the complexity and balance expected of a fine Cabernet.”
To match the work of art inside the bottle, The Capital Grille invited artists, label enthusiasts and wine lovers to create an original label for the wine during a competition held last autumn. The winning painting, Pairings, by Florida-based artist Patricia Timbrook, was chosen for the way the bold colors and fluid lines perfectly complement the robust flavors and subtle undertones of the wine, and will appear on every individually numbered bottle of The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon.
“In addition to supporting our national charity, Share Our Strength®, we are proud to recognize and celebrate talented artists like Patricia Timbrook,” said John Martin, President of The Capital Grille. “As always, we look forward to bringing our guests an exceptional and unique wine and dining experience. We’re especially pleased when those experiences help support a worthy cause.”
The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon will complement The Capital Grille’s award-winning wine program, which is routinely recognized by Wine Spectator magazine. Featuring more than 325 Old and New World selections housed in floor-to-ceiling, temperature-controlled wine kiosks, The Capital Grille also offers a Captain’s List of 125 collector wines. The Capital Grille is known for its personal wine lockers, available for lease with an inscribed brass nameplate.
