The Capital Grille has partnered with Tuscan winemaker Castello Banfi for a series of wine dinners, starting today and ending on April 5. This series will the mark the United States debut of the winery’s 2005 BelnerO Sangiovese di Montalcino, a wine that is described as an “innovative, terroir-driven wine, a significant departure in style from Montalcino’s traditional, varietal reds.”

    Yum! The swordfish sounds so tasty and the tenderloin just looks delicious in the photo! Plus $49 per person is a pretty good deal for a five-course feast!

    That swordfish looks so appetizing. It doesn’t help that it is close to lunchtime either.

    I cannot believe I have never been to the Capital Grille. I see it almost every day in North Scottsdale but have never gone! The swordfish looks amazing, actually that whole dinner sounds pretty good!
