Yelp MKE's Generous Pour At The Capital Grille!
Sip, swirl, repeat... but add serious personality, first-rate fare, and Yelp MKE elites and you've got a really, really good time. See? Learning can be fun!
This past week, Yelp MKE elites went oenophile at The Capital Grille for Yelp's Generous Pour: two back to back evenings of incredible wine and food. Highlighting seven of California's most remarkable wines (all rated 90 points or higher), elites got their learn on and on with Peter Bressert, TCG Milwaukee's resident wine expert. Serious knowledge was dropped, and serious fun was had!
We started with bubbles and ended with Syrah, and were guided through the seven unique Generous Pour wines by Peter, who was both insanely knowledgeable and completely approachable at once. No dumb questions here! Peter played an amazing host, answering all of our novice-to-connoisseur queries while making us laugh with anecdotes galore.
Of course, The Capital Grille's known for more than their stellar wine selection; their fare extraordinaire is the stuff foodie dreams are made of! As in traditional TCG fashion, the staff welcomed us with open arms and the kitchen provided a variety of first-class apps for elites' noshing enjoyment. High-quality cheeses (an amazing Wisconsin Cheddar, Bella Luna Gorgonzola, cave-aged Cardona and Bella Vitrano merlot), accompanied other offerings such as fig/prosciutto/goat cheese crostini, a dry-aged sirloin crostini, scallops with a sweet corn succotash, an earl grey-seared Ahi tuna and more.
A seriously great time was had by all – The Capital Grille made MKE elites feel right at home, if their home was a fancy-pants house of learned-yet-hilarious wine connossieurs and amazing chefs. We walked away full of wine, great eats, and mad vino knowledge. Who's not into that?
What's next on the docket? Stay tuned to find out!
Until our next amazing Yelp MKE elite get-together... SYOY, Brew City!
