Calling all artists: Capital Grille wine label design contest - Orlando Sentinel (blog)

Artists are invited to enter the third annual Artist Series Wine Label Design competition hosted by The Capital Grille. With a focus on uniting the worlds of fine wine and fine art, the winning piece of original artwork will grace bottles of a specially blended wine across the United States. In addition, The Capital Grille will donate a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold to Share Our Strength and its mission to end childhood hunger in America. Over the past two years, sales of the Artist Series wine resulted in over $420,000.00 donated to the charity. From August 22 through October 7, 2011, submissions of original artwork will be considered in the label design search. This limited production Artist Series cabernet sauvignon is made by acclaimed winemaker Ted Edwards of Freemark Abbey Vineyard, who has been crafting world-class wines in Napa Valley for more than 30 years. George Miliotes, Master Sommelier for The Capital Grille, worked alongside Edwards to blend a distinctive cabernet originating from grapes grown in the famed Stagecoach and Bosche vineyards.
In addition to the prestige and publicity from having artwork displayed on these limited edition bottles of wine, this year's winning artist will also receive from The Capital Grille a case of the wine and an all-expenses paid, four day/three night trip to Napa Valley to enjoy personalized tours of some of the world's top wineries. For more information on how to enter, visit TheCapitalGrille.com.

The Capital Grille Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon will be available exclusively at all 45 locations of The Capital Grille, and will complement The Capital Grille's award-winning wine program, which is routinely recognized by Wine Spectator magazine. Featuring more than 350 Old and New World selections housed in floor-to-ceiling, temperature-controlled wine kiosks, The Capital Grille's wine offerings also include a Captain's List of 125 collector wines. Guests also have the opportunity to lease a wine locker, personalized with an inscribed brass nameplate.
