An essential part of the steakhouse experience is the wine, but navigating a wine list can sometimes be tricky. Cabernet or zinfandel? Bottle or glass? Well, The Capital Grille has got you covered with their newest seasonal special: From now through Sept. 4, you can sample up to seven wines for just $28 with dinner, through their “Generous Pour” promotion.
The event has been going strong for several years, and this summer, with a theme of “Rebels, Rule Breakers, and Game Changers,” the restaurant is honoring “some of the boldest, risk-taking winemakers in the world,” by serving wines that were “crafted in unexpected places or by unconventional means, but are of such exceptional quality they have become the benchmark for their varietals.” This year’s offerings are Stellina Di Notte’s pinot grigio (with a splash of chardonnay); Provenance’s sauvignon blanc (a white grown in a typically red region); Chateau St. Jean’s chardonnay (a rare single-vineyard chard); Lyric by Etude’s pinot noir (an unforgiving grape grown by “rebellious” winemakers); Penfolds’ Bin 2 shiraz blend (a wine produced to challenge the finest European reds); Stags' Leap’s The Leap cabernet sauvignon (the first winery that named a whole growing region); and Beaulieu Vineyard’s Tapestry cabernet blend (from the makers of California’s first “cult” cabernet).
Diners can mix and match as many of the wines as they’d like. If they want to try one white with their appetizer and the two cabernets with their steak, that will work; if they’d prefer to go through the entire portfolio during their meal, that will work, too. The size of the pour will depend on how many different wines are sampled, but no matter how you slice it, being able to try all these wines for just $28 certainly qualifies as generous!
