George Miliotes, Master Sommelier for The Capital Grille (and one of fewer than 200 Master Sommeliers in the world), has chosen an excellent selection of wines from Australia, Europe and California for their latest Master Wine Tasting Event, which runs through September 5th, pairing wine and food while knowledgeable servers guide you through the tasting.
Here he speaks about Spanish wines and also about the role my brother, Jorge Ordoñez, has played in bringing Spanish wines to the international stage.
The contemporary story of Spanish wines cannot be told without one of its central characters, Jorge Ordoñez. Over the last 20 years, Señor Ordoñez has played a pivotal role in elevating the wines of his native Spain to the international stage. Utilizing his lifetime of experience in all aspects of the wine industry, he works with carefully selected, small, family wineries to help them modernize and create flavor profiles that will appeal to a global audience. He has helped bring a vast and varied collection of marvelous wines from artisan vintners into the limelight, and it is with unbridled excitement that we are able to present to you the next great wines of Spain.
