Bruliam in Restaurants!
On the Monday following Thanksgiving we intend to release all of the pre-orders for shipping, so you should have your wine by December 7th. If you haven't already placed an order, there is still time to get an order in and receive the wine for the holidays.
In addition to the overwhelming pre-order response we've received from our Brigade members, we're thrilled to announce that three of the best restaurants in town are planning to carry our 2008 Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir. If amazing food, top atmosphere, and great people weren't reason enough to support these places, now you have a real reason to go - to order a bottle of Bruliam wine to enjoy with your delicious meal!!
And even if you've already ordered wine from us, make sure that when you eat at these terrific restaurants, you let the fantastic people listed below know that you're a Bruliam Brigade member and that you appreciate their support of our fledgling wine brand. It'll mean the world to them and to us.
Restaurants Carrying the Bruliam Wines 2008 Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir:
Addison - the only 5-Star /5-Diamond restaurant in Southern California has already won just about every food and wine award imaginable, including the coveted Grand Award from Wine Spectator. Chef William Bradley and Wine Director Jesse Rodriguez are both ardent Bruliam supporters, so make sure to return the love.
Cucina Urbana - the turn-around superstar of 2009, Cucina Urbana's small plates / locally sourced menu has taken off like a rocket, leading a ressurgence of the entire Banker's Hill dining scene. We're overjoyed that the place is packed nightly and a lot of the credit goes to General Manager Ben Kephart. A fervent Brigade member, we expect Ben's allocation of Bruliam to fly off his wine list and out of his unique retail shop.
Whisknladle - our go-to neighborhood place for everything from burgers to bone marrow and scallops to sweetbreads, Whisknladle proves that good food prepared exceptionally well wins the day every time. Make sure to say hi to Bruliam backers owner Arturo Kassel, General Manager David Balanson, and our all-time favorite restaurant server ever, Jenny Deutsch.
UPDATE: We’re also excited to announce that a fourth local restaurant is picking up our wine for their wine list. Lupi Vino Cucina is our favorite local Italian restaurant. If you live in Bird Rock, you’re probably already a regular and know how special Lupi is. If you live elsewhere in San Diego, we urge you to go in and support this great place. Tell Raffo that Bruliam sent you!
A huge thanks to all of these great restaurants for their support of Bruliam!
