LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cheers to California Wine Month! This September, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in creative dining with a California vibe, is celebrating wines from its home state with a specially crafted wine flight designed to give guests nationwide a tableside tour of California’s famed vineyards and also introducing a delicious new Sparkling Sunset Sangria, featuring Northern California’s Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Diamond Collection Merlot. To experience California’s wine regions in person, guests also can enter CPK’s “What’s Your California Wine Pour-sonality?” sweepstakes for a chance to win an unforgettable trip for two to Sonoma County, Calif., home to more than 425 wineries.
“We love celebrating California Wine Month as a chance to show off California’s world-renowned wines to our guests throughout the country,” said Ashley Ceraolo, CPK’s SVP of Marketing and Beverage, resident sommelier and a 2016 Wine Enthusiast Magazine “40 Under 40” Tastemaker. “From the vineyards of California’s Central Coast known for some of the best pinot noirs in the world, to Napa and Sonoma Valley’s legendary cabernet sauvignons, chardonnays and so much more, we invite our guests to join us on a delicious tour of California wines, right from the comfort of our dining room. Whether you prefer a bold red, a crisp white, or a creative and refreshing spin on sangria, there is a perfect California wine for you and we look forward to helping you find it!”
CPK’s California Wine Month wine flight features a trio of pours showcasing the distinct tastes of Josh Cellars Chardonnay, Colby Red Blend and Mark West Pinot Noir.
CPK’s new Sparkling Sunset Sangria is a deliciously aromatic fusion of Sonoma County wine country’s Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Diamond Collection Merlot combined with M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rosé, St. Germain Elderflower, agave nectar, fresh lime and sparkling water. Served with a cucumber slice, this creative cocktail is sure to keep the feeling of summer going well into the fall harvest season.
