The Grill Room Launches 2011-2012 Wine Class Series

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Grill Room Launches 2011-2012 Wine Class Series
Grill Room Sommelier Sara Kavanaugh to provide fun, unique tour of wine world for guests

NEW ORLEANS, LA. - This fall and spring, New Orleans residents and Windsor Court guests will have an opportunity to become true wine connoisseurs with a little help from The Grill Room's highly regarded Sommelier, Sara Kavanaugh. On Wednesday, October 5 at 6 pm, The Grill Room will launch its new Wine Class Series with a focus on "Old World Wine vs. New World Wine." 

 Kavanaugh will guide guests as they taste Old and New World wine side by side to gain an understanding of what makes them different. She will show them how different soil types, production methods and climates affect the final product.  Eight different wines from all over the globe will be tasted, including four reds and four whites. 

The Wine Class Series will kick off in October and conclude in May 2012. Classes will teach attendees how to blind taste, how to pair wines with food, and to understand and appreciate aroma. Classes will be held at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month, beginning in October and continuing through May.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling 504-522-1994. The cost of each class is $25 and, if guests dine in the restaurant on the same evening as a class they attend, they will receive a complementary sommelier-selected bottle of wine with the purchase of any two entrees.

A full schedule for the 2011-2012 Wine Class Series can be found here on the Grill Room website  (http://www.grillroomneworleans.com/).

The Windsor Court began mixology classes in Spring 2010 and continued them into mid-2011, to high regard and attendance. Wine-focused special editions of the mixology class ended up being some of the most popular and well-attended sessions, so now the focus has shifted to wine. Mixology classes will return in the near future.

The hotel is a 23-story landmark that includes the acclaimed Grill Room Restaurant, Polo Club Lounge and Le Salon. Windsor Court Hotel is the only hotel in New Orleans, and in all of Louisiana, to receive both the coveted Forbes (formerly Mobil) Four Stars and AAA Four Diamond designations. In 2010, Travel + Leisure ranked the Windsor Court #32 in its annual listing of the "Top 50 Large City Hotels in US/Canada." It was the only hotel in New Orleans to make the list. The hotel also earned a spot on Celebrated Living's 2010 Top 20 US Mainland Hotels and Condé Nast Traveler's coveted "Gold List" for 2010. Throughout its history, the Windsor Court has been the choice for discriminating travelers visiting New Orleans, from world leaders and royalty to professional athletes, business leaders and other celebrities.
