DECEMBER 15 - 21

DEC 15
Drinking the Stars @ City Grill

City Grill is pleased to present a tasting of Sparkling Wines from Around the World on December 15, 2004. The restaurant will offer a sampling of light hors d‚oeuvres for the holiday season to compliment these sparkling
wines that have been compared to drinking the stars. Speaker John Poplin of Atlanta Wholesale Wines will entertain questions throughout the event. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with a social gathering for $19 per person
including wine tasting and tapas.
Sparkling Wines have launched ships, toasted weddings & special occasions, attended countless parties, and shared untold special moments between people. City Grill will celebrate this year‚s holiday season with a little fizz from around the world. The restaurant will start in France with a rare Blanc de Blanc, made entirely from chardonnay grapes for a lighter and more elegant wine, before moving on to very dry Champagne. Another Blanc de
Blanc from California comes from Jepson Vineyards, the sole producer of estate still wines, champagnes, and brandies in North America. Touring the world, the Spanish consider their Cava Brut to be the equivalent of talking with God so it served to everyone at baptisms, including the baby whose pacifier is dipped in the wine. The Italians ask that we consider sharing a split‚ of the bubbly for breakfast as it is the perfect size for two and goes so well with orange juice. Sparkling Wines that will be featured:
· Vueve de Vernay, Blanc de Blancs, France, NV
· Duval-Leroy, Brut, Champagne, France, NV
· Jepson, Blanc de Blanc, Mendocino, California, NV
· Mezza Corona, Rotari Brut, Italy, NV
· Avinyo, Cava Brut, Spain, NV
City Grill will feature Sparkling Wines from Around the World throughout the entire month of December on the wine list. The wines will also be paired with complimentary dishes on the Chef‚s Tasting Menu on December 15th for
those who would like to experience a meal dedicated to the delights of Sparkling Wines. The cost is $90 per person or $60 per person without wine pairings. There is a $19 discount on the Chef‚s Tasting Menu offered to
