Beginning today through November 22, guests dining in The Capital Grille’s lounge at both the Millenia Mall and International Drive locations here in Orlando can choose from two different styles of Wagyu burgers, accompanied by their choice of a glass of two exceptional wines for $25.

These wines include a Justin Isosceles Cabernet Sauvignon and a Landmark Overlook Pinot Noir and are typically reserved for bottle purchases only.

These pairings were hand-selected by George Miliotes, The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier and one of only 230 wine professionals in the world to have earned this prestigious title.

“Wagyu beef is often referred to as ‘butter knife beef’ because it is arguably the most tender beef on earth,” said The Capital Grille’s Executive Chef Michael LaDuke. “With Wagyu & Wine, we are putting our own twist on the comfort of a burger guests love, further enhanced with premium ingredients and flawless preparation.”

“Wagyu & Wine is also a wonderful opportunity for guests to enjoy one of two exceptional wine pairings with a gourmet burger,” added George Miliotes, The Capital Grille’s Master Sommelier and one of only 230 wine professionals in the world to have earned that prestigious title.

The Capital Grille’s pairings were hand-selected by Miliotes, who takes great pride in coupling world-class wines with fantastic dishes.

“When selecting a wine to pair with our Gorgonzola and Black Truffle Wagyu Burger, we factored in the need for powerful tannins to offset the richness of the meat, which is how we came to choose the 2012 Justin Isosceles Cabernet Sauvignon,” Miliotes explained.

“As for our Wagyu Cheeseburger with Fried Egg, it made perfect sense to match the texture of the egg yolk to the silky smooth 2013 Landmark Overlook Pinot Noir.”
