Dream Dance Steak Names Champion in Sommelier Showdown Dinner Series

MILWAUKEE – Kim Fisher of Milwaukee was voted 2010 Sommelier Showdown champion at Potawatomi Bingo Casino’s Dream Dance Steak this week. Fisher and David Harrell, both certified sommeliers, faced off Monday night at Dream Dance Steak’s 2010 Sommelier Showdown finale dinner.

Fisher and Harrell got the chance to compete in the finale by winning the first two Showdown dinners held earlier this year.

As part of the competition, each sommelier paired a wine with the second, third and fourth course of the five-course meal prepared by award-winning Chef Jason Gorman of Dream Dance Steak. Guests of the dinner voted for each of their favorite wine pairings based off of a blind taste test.

“Guests truly enjoyed the event and had a fantastic time testing their knowledge by guessing the varietal of wine they were tasting,” Dream Dance Steak General Manager Jeff Cook said.

Fisher’s winning selections included a ’08 Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Pinot Gris, the crisp ’08 Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling and a rich ’08 Groom Bush Zinfandel Barossa Valley.

Dream Dance Steak plans to host the next Sommelier Showdown dinner spring 2011.
