Four Seasons - Wine is Fun

“Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized.”
― Andre Simon

This Sunday afternoon (19 Aug), I was at the event organized by GingerClaps for Four Seasons at Royal Orchids. The idea was to get a feel of different classical wines of the brand.

The occasion was graced by Four Seasons brand ambassador Miss Earth Shamita Singha who did a small talk on different types of wines and how they are prepared.

Apart from this another important program was live cooking of various foods by the chefs of the hotel by the poolside.

The event was well attended by bloggers who blog on food, travel, photography, lifestyle.

For me take away from the get together are:
  • Lingering taste of classical wines of Four Seasons
  • To know people behind the blogs that I admired so much for their skill.

What a great event! And a wonderful way to meet bloggers in person. I like wine-tasting events. The only problem is that I tend to "taste" too much!

There is nothing like a good wine tasting especial with a beautiful ambassador like this one. Know you had a wonderful time. Your photos show it. It is good to be back blogging again after a summer's rest. Am looking forward to seeing more beautiful temples from your gorgeous country.genie

It's good to see events like this taking place in India as well. Wine tasting is an experience in itself. Good to have more awareness around it. Combine it with great food and you would want nothing more to complete the day.

RNSANE said...

Wonderful, Rajesh. My good friend,
Shiju, also did a post about this event and, I understand, you me there. Hopefully, during your San Francisco trips, you've gotten to try some of the superb Napa and other California wines. Sad for me, I've not found Indian wines yet ready to compare.

Suzy said...

I'll pass on the wine but the desert looks yummy.
