Firepit City Grill Welcomes WINK 96.9 Gina Birch and Cupcake Wines
BU VIDEO: Month Long Cupcake Vineyards Wine Feature Introduced with Cupcakes and more Cupcakes!
They’re hot. Delicious and Priced right.
Cupcake Vineyards and their line of varietal wines are growing both in selection and popularity and recently The Firepit City Grill in Fort Myers introduced a different kind of food pairing and wine tasting when they featured 10 different Cupcake wines and four different flavors of mini-cupcakes.
The event was co-sponsored by BeverageUnderground.com and held on April 28, 2012 at Gulf Coast Town Center on the lawn at the Market Square Stage.
Long-time Southwest Florida Radio Personality Gina Birch of WINK 96.9 was the special guest who along with Jeff Nichols of Republic National Distributing Company was pouring samplings from the line of Cupcake Wines. The staff served guests while friends and fans clinked glasses and enjoyed the Wildfire Blues Band appetizers…and cupcakes, on the Patio at The Firepit.
Guests to both dinner at The Firepit and the free outdoor Blues Concert were treated to great prices on glasses and bottles of both white and red Cupcake Wines and as a bonus got to taste another Cupcake Wine…and a homemade mini-cupcake from the Firepit’s ‘scratch kitchen’.
“I loved the white blend, The Cupcake Angel Food with the great Lettuce Wraps here at the Firepit. I enjoy being able to help the local businesses while I support the wine industry”, smiled Birch who writes a popular blog on wine, food and to a lesser degree, music.
Jeff Nichols who is RNDC’s District Manager in the Fort Myers area, was representing Cupcake Vineyards and answered questions while guests of all legal drinking ages found just the right ‘Cupcake’ to sample and sip.
“This has been a great brand to offer to our clients, great quality and priced to be both affordable to the public and still profitable for the retailer”, said Nichols. The wines are from the greatest regions in the world the Italian Varietals including the Pinot Grigio, Moscato and Prosecco are DOC and DOCG quality assured,the Sauvignon Blanc is from New Zealand’s Marlbourogh Region and the Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina”, added Nichols.
Nichols is right. The California’s are true to the Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir expressions and the Riesling are from Germany…and delicious.
Guests agreed that the wine drinks a lot bigger than it’s price and for the entire month of May including Mother’s Day the Firepit City Grill will proudly feature Cupcake Wines every Saturday & Sunday when guests will receive $5 off the already reasonable pricing on all bottles of Cupcake Vineyards White and Red Wines.
The Eastside Firepit City Grill is a independently owned and family operated restaurant in Fort Myers, Florida.
