Due to the tax levied on wines coming into Thailand, it has for many years been something of a luxury, hence the reason that events that bring people together to enjoy a glass or two in great surroundings are always going to be a success.
The November Wine Experience at the Amari on Friday November 20 had been brought forward a week so it wouldn’t clash with the international fireworks event in town.
The house duo entertains the guests.
The gardens at the Amari are simply stunning, somewhat akin to being on a romantic movie set, and this is augmented by the high standards of service.
The catering team laid on a buffet of Tokyo roll, spicy tuna saku, West Africa lamb yassa in pita bread, braised beef brisket, fire sea salt fish with green mango salad, and a carvery of roasted marinated pork with lemon grass and garlic
The wines supplied by Siam Winery comprised of a chilled Mionetto Prosecco Treviso, followed by Marco Fellugo, Mongris Pinot Gregio again from Italy, and a Gruner Veltliner Plus 2012 from Austria.
The staff ensures the buffet is always well stocked.
The red comprised of the Spanish Montecillo Crianza 2009 Rioja and a Chilean Vina Maipo Cabernet Sauvignon 2011.
Another terrific evening with the house band getting a few up dancing whilst others enjoyed the choice of desserts from the pastry chef.
The wine experiences normally fall on the last Friday of the month and in December, due to the many activities taking place in town, it will be held on Friday the 11th. This time the focus will be on sparkling wine.
