The Wine Cellar at Restaurant R’evolution!

Chefs Rick Tramonto and John Folse’s latest venture Restaurant R’evolution is located inside the Royal Sonesta Hotel in the heart of N’awlins. They selected Wine Enthusiast to handle the design of their 10,000 bottle climate controlled wine cellar.¬† I had the pleasure of working with Chef Tramonto and his staff in creating this elaborate showcase cellar. I have yet to see it in person, but it looks pretty impressive here. Check out the link below!

An Award Winning Post by Yours Truly for Jordan Winery’s 40 Word Contest!

Not to toot my own horn, but I thought this was pretty cool… and I got a fancy, engraved Riedel Decanter out of it! In all honesty, this wine has a special meaning to me because it was one of the first wines that sparked my passion. It’s what is referred to by many as an “epiphany wine”, and the 1996 Jordan Cab (along with a random, yet supremely memorable Gevrey Chambertin) was mine. Check out the link below!
