Beginning today, the Capital Grille will be offering its second annual Artist Series Wine Event, which features a specially crafted wine sporting an original label designed by Florida artist Patricia Timbrook. Timbrook’s design was chosen from among others entered in a competition held last fall by the Orlando-based restaurant brand.
According to a press release, Timbrook’s painting, titled Pairings, was chosen “for the way the bold colors and fluid lines perfectly complement the robust flavors and subtle undertones of the wine.” The wine is a cabernet sauvignon from winemaker Thomas Peffer of Atalon Vineyards in Napa Valley. Fewer than 1000 cases will be produced, all exclusively for Capital Grille. The wine sells for $75 per bottle, and Darden will donate $25 from every bottle sold to Share Our Strength, a national charity that works to end childhood hunger in America.
“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. Timbrook is from Parrish, Florida, near Bradenton.
The Capital Grille is located at Pointe Orlando, 9101 International Drive. The restaurant is open for lunch Monday through Friday and dinner daily. The phone number is 407-370-4392.
