Rio Station has opened the cellar, putting wines on sale with several selections reduced to just $10. These include varieties that regularly sell for considerably more, including Kung Fu Girl Reisling, Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay, Kaiken Cabernet Sauvignon, and others.
Wine collector and owner Richard Rutherford has compiled a collection of wines from around the world. His passion for wine has sent him around the globe; sampling wines from each region. When he is unable to travel to a wine-producing country of interest, he has their wines brought in for careful scrutiny before making his recommendation. Around the restaurant, especially when Ric is traveling, it has become almost commonplace for boxes to arrive from some obscure vineyard or even a major producer that he has had the privilege to visit; often finding a gem or two to add to the cellar.
Some of the wine specials offered can be found on the Rio Station website at www.riostation.com/wine-specials. There is a limited supply, so they are only available while supplies last.
Rio Station is located just outside of the Grande Center Mall at Rt. 9 & 47, serving their Bring It Home Menu, 7 days a week from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Orders for wine and food can be placed in advance by calling 609-889-2000. The menu is also available online at www.riostation.com/bring-it-home.
