ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (June 15, 2017) – Olón, one of award-winning Chef Jose Garces’ newest restaurants at Tropicana Atlantic City, is presenting its first ever wine tasting event: the Bodega Garzón Wine Experience. On Thursday, June 29, guests can enjoy beautiful ocean views during our cocktail reception while sampling six signature wines from the Uruguayan winery, Bodega Garzón, paired with some of Chef Jose Garces’ unique dishes from Olón.
Located eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, Bodega Garzón has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks surrounded by lush forest, rocky soils, boulders, and palm trees. Olón is the first restaurant in North America to carry Bodega Garzón single vineyard wines. From red fruits and violet colors like Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, and Marselan, to crisp white wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino, there is a taste for everyone.
While sampling some delicious wines presented by our sommelier, guests can also indulge in cuisine pairings from Olón’s menu. Our perfectly paired recipes bring out the finest characteristics of the Bodega Garzón wines. Try a glass of the peach and citrus scented Albarino Reserve 2016, served with Scallop Gratinee, covered in parsnip and parmesan cream and a caviar bar. The carmine red Pinot Noir Single Vineyard 2015 is bright and elegant with aromas of cherries and roses, pairing pleasantly with Olón’s Ora King Salmon. Other dishes include the Wagyu Beef Empanada, Iberico Secreto Anticucho, Pulpo Ceviche, and Chocolate Cremeux.
Dine, sip, and enjoy the Bodega Garzón Wine Experience at Olón on Thursday, June 29th at 6 p.m. Tickets are $85 per person and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Must be 21.
