Glendale, AZ, September 27, 2012 -- Delve into the rich history of wine
blending by tasting blends, both red and white, from the world’s most
famous wine regions, Greece, France, Italy, Sonoma and Napa.

Arrowhead Grill’s sommelier will guide wine enthusiasts on a journey
through the historical wine blends of the Old World to their present-day,
American cousins. The tour begins with the revered grapes of the
Mediterranean and French countryside, where vintners established the
tradition of wine blending hundreds of years ago.

Elios Mediterranean White is a wine that gets its names from Helios, the
sun god, and blends traditional grapes, Chardonnay and varietals of the
Mediterranean. This characteristically yellow, fruit forward wine is a
delight to the senses, bringing to mind sandy beaches and lazy summer
days and is steeped with light, tangy citrus flavors and hints of vanilla
and honey.

Made of Terret and Vermentino grapes of France to enhance its vivacity
and smoothness, the Marius Blanc is Michel Chapoutier’s creation. This
blended wine opens to fruit and peach aromas with notes of grapefruit and
offers a complex, ample and fruity richness that lingers on the tongue.

On the American side, and paying homage to our Founding Fathers of the
Federalist Party, The Federalist’s Dueling Pistols presents a daring
blend of Zinfandel and Syrah. Both grapes hail from Dry Creek Valley,
Sonoma, noted for vintners’ unique approach to zinfandels and this blend
is no different. Ben Carter of Benito’s Wine Reviews describes Dueling
Pistols as having “firm tannins and a big, dark blackberry fruit profile
with a long, rich finish. Later, as it breathes, a slightly toasty aroma
contributes to a wonderful dark berry pie flavor.”

These are just a few of the wines that will be explored during the Art of
the Blend tasting event at Chef Charles Wade Schwerd’s West-Side Wine
Club, Saturday, Sept. 29, from 2-4 p.m. Each wine will be will be
expertly paired with foods that bring out their distinct and complex
flavors while exploring the practice and art of blended wines.

“As a craft that has been practiced for more than 500 years, wine
blending is one of the most creative and expressive forms of epicurean
experimentation and has given the culinary world great new tastes to
treasure,” said Chef Charles Wade Schwerd. “We’ve chosen blended wines
that illustrate the complexity and artistic range that these wines have
to offer, and we know everyone will enjoy exploring their flavors.”
The West-Side Wine Club will meet at Arrowhead Grill from 2 to 4 p.m.,
Saturday, Sept. 29, and is open to the public. The cost is $25 per person
in advance and reservations are required.
