Had a chance to stop by a really nice & sexy event UPTOWN Uncorked at The Foundry At Puritan Mill in Atlanta which featured Cuisine from award-winning local chefs & preview of the 2015 Lexus NX 300h. Lexus partnered with UPTOWN Magazine and Diageo to present this private, premium culinary experience showcasing an eclectic mix of food, wine, culture and fine automobiles.
Attendees experienced unique culinary interpretations of classic cuisine, including bruschetta spring roll gazpacho shooters, paired with wines like a Sauvignon Blanc from Sterling Vintner’s Collection by award-winning Sterling Vineyards.
Two renowned chefs from the local area, presented an array of gourmet selections :

Lexus UPTOWN Uncorked is an opportunity for the brand to bridge its passion for cutting-edge, luxury design, as found on the all-new NX crossover, to a food and wine experience that is tailored to the culture and lifestyle of our audience,” said Stacy Henderson, Lexus Advertising Planner. “Our customers are highly sophisticated and well-traveled, but still have a strong desire for community, local flare and new discoveries. The UPTOWN Uncorked tour offers a taste of all these things.”
