Commander' Palace Launches Wine Dinner Series in Celebration of Wine Spectator's Grand Award

Award-winning winemakers from across the country are collaborating with Wine Guy Dan Davis and Chef Tory McPhail in a series kicking off January 30, 2013

(New Orleans; January 11, 2013) - In celebration of receiving the Grand Award, the highest award from Wine Spectator magazine, Commander's Palace is launching a new wine dinner series to celebrate the accolade held by only 75 restaurants in the entire world. The series will begin on Wednesday, January 30, at 6:30p.m., during which Emmy Award-winning sports commentator Jim Nantz who will be in New Orleans to call the Super Bowl, and wine industry entrepreneur Peter Deutsch will host a dinner paired with their Sonoma-based wine brand, The Calling. The Calling's four wines, which come from some of the most prestigious vineyards in Sonoma, include two Russian River Valley Chardonnays and two Alexander Valley reds. The wines will be paired with a six-course feast prepared by Executive Chef Tory McPhail.

"We are thrilled to be collaborating with some of the best winemakers in the world for this series, starting with The Calling," says "Wine Guy" Dan Davis. "At Commander's Palace, we take pride in offering guests access to a wine and dining experience that they cannot find elsewhere."

Commander's Palace has long been praised for their dedicated service, unwavering passion and high quality wine program. The Calling Wine Dinner is $125 per person, plus tax and gratuity, and will be held in the Garden Room at Commander's Palace. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Commander's Palace Event Coordinator Morgan Trulen at (504) 899-8221. Upcoming dinners will include February 20, 2013, with Inglenook; in May with Staglin Family Vineyard, and in August with Raj Parr, exact dates to be determined.
