Chasing Davies: The Generous Pour Event Not to Miss!

The Generous Pour Event Not to Miss!

Last weekend, a couple girlfriends and I met up for an impromptu happy hour that quickly turned into a girls night out!  Thanks to my husband for being flexible and on dad duty that night. It was just what I needed to make me remember what it was like to be young and spontaneous again. ;)  And then super tired the next day, haha (I'm old).

The Capital Grille on the Country Club Plaza invited us to experience their Generous Pour event happening now through September, 4th.  This is an event not to be missed, guys - it's such an awesome deal. Only $28 with purchase of dinner, and if you don't like a wine - they'll take it off your ticket, but they'll also help guide you through the selection to suit your palate.  

The Generous Pour is a wine tasting event and the theme of this year is "Rebels, Rule Breakers & Game Changers."  They have 7 different wines that are all unique to Capital Grille - 3 whites and 4 reds. They've chosen wines that live up to this year's theme, but also can be paired with your dining experience (meal, appetizer and/or dessert choices), and offer something for everyone (even if you are not typically a wine drinker).

We started out with crisp white wines - which I'm partial to in the summertime.  My favorite was probably the Provenance Sauvignon Blanc (bottle shown above), which has an interesting story!  The wine makers actually gambled when planting the sauvignon blanc grapes, and did so in region known for making red wine in Rutherford, CA.  The gamble paid off, and this wine is clean and citrusy (and I now instantly wish I was sipping on a glass while typing this).

We started the evening with Capital Grille's Tuna Tartare, which is a glorious tower of tuna stacked over delicious and fresh avocado, mango and Sriracha!  My favorite (and from what I hear around town, everybody's favorite) Cap Grille bartender (but they're all good!), Jenny, helped match up the perfect wine from the event with this dish.  We sipped a Chardonnay and the pairing was, of course, spot on.

But, on the off-chance you just REALLY don't like wine, or not feeling it on the particular day of your visit, not to worry, because Capital Grille has some of the best cocktails, bartenders and options of any restaurant in Kansas City. I'm never disappointed.  And their food, well that just speaks for itself.  Best in class I tell ya.  And now I'm starving... 

You guys have got to get there before this event is over!

Thanks for having me to taste, sip and chat all about wonderful food and unique wines, Capital Grille!  We had a great girls night enjoying it all and can't wait to come back.
