VIP Media Reception and Bottle Opening: 6 – 7 p.m.

Wine Dinner: 7 p.m.

WHERE:

Renowned New Orleans fine-dining establishment, Restaurant R’evolution, has partnered with family-owned and California-based Jordan Vineyard & Winery for a special event to reveal its 2013 vintage Jordan Melchior 18-liter bottle, as well as introduce a by-the-glass offering to feature the special edition wine. The event will include a VIP reception starting at 6 p.m. hosted by Jordan Vineyard & Winery owner John Jordan, joined by three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Cam Jordan of the New Orleans Saints, inside the Restaurant R’evolution courtyard.

John and Cam Jordan will meet and greet attending restaurant guests and wine enthusiasts and reveal the 18-liter bottle from its wooden box in New Orleans style. Guests will also be invited to sign the bottle as a commemorative moment during the event. Immediately following the bottle unveiling, John Jordan along with Restaurant R’evolution will host a special edition wine dinner at 7 p.m. featuring Jordan varietals with a menu developed by Chef de Cuisine Jana Billiot. The cost of the dinner is $165.00 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Both Jordans discovered their shared interests in wine and football after the Saints’ wild-card round win over the Carolina Panthers in January, when Cam announced to the media that he’d be sending Cam Newton a bottle of his favorite wine, Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. After a few messages on social media, the friendship was born.

 “I think it’s only fitting that the first bottle of wine we share is the largest one we make,” said John Jordan, CEO of Jordan Vineyard & Winery since 2005. “Two of the most important things in my life are wine and football, and I can’t think of a better way for new friends to come together.”

The event marks the first occasion held in New Orleans to reveal the 2013 vintage Jordan Melchior 18-liter bottle and begin the by-the-glass feature in the market. Holding the equivalent of 24 standard wine bottles, this 18-liter Melchior is the only bottle available in the Gulf Coast of the United States.
