Football’s tough. Hunger’s tougher. Join forces with Ray's Restaurants and the NFL to tackle hunger. Here’s the kicker: you can help by drinking wine. This fall, raising a glass or pouring a bottle of California’s Orin Swift wine at Ray’s Restaurants locations scores meals for those in need of food here in the Atlanta area. Huddle up for the game plan. The NFL will donate 30 meals to a local food bank for every case of Orin Swift wines sold at Ray’s through the fall season. All three Ray’s Restaurants -- Ray’s in the City, Ray’s on the River and Ray’s at Killer Creek -- are featuring several Orin Swift wines at special prices throughout the NFL promotion.
Full-bodied Mannequin chardonnay bursts with aromatics of honeydew, honeysuckle and ripe peach complemented by glimpses of jasmine, pineapple and cream ($60 bottle; $20 glass at Ray’s in the City/Ray’s on the River; $16 per six-ounce glass, $22 per nine-ounce glass at Ray’s at Killer Creek). Smooth, soft and satiating, Palermo cabernet sauvignon lures through aromas of raspberry and ripe cherry and hints of star anise, five spice and black tea ($75 bottle; $25 glass at Ray’s in the City/Ray’s on the River; $20 per six-ounce glass, $28 per nine-ounce glass at Ray’s at Killer Creek). Bold yet delicate Papillon Bordeaux blend, a new release, opens to cassis, boysenberry and chaparral and pairs wonderfully with grilled meats, a Ray’s specialty. ($95 bottle, all Ray’s locations). Orin Swift wines complement Ray’s signature entrées, succulent prime meats and sustainable, fresh-caught seafood -- as well as helping sustain neighbors in need.
