Capital Grille Wine Tour Dinner Oct 18th – Menu and Wine Selections


To All,

This is just a friendly reminder about our upcoming Wine Tour Dinner on Friday, October 18th beginning at 6:30pm at The Capital Grille, in Stamford.

We will be featuring seven delicious wines (see below), hand selected by yours truly and Donna Pace of Gathering Harvest Wines, our hostess for the evening, while we take you all on a little tour of Spain, Chile and finishing in Italy with family style service of indigenous cuisine.
