The Conrad Maldives Rangali to host wine festivals

The Conrad Maldives Rangali will be treating guests this Christmas season to two fabulous wine events, organised by two of the world's most recognised wine producers, the refined Italian Antinori and the legendary Chateau Latour. Both will head down to the luxury Maldives hotel in December to offer guests exquisite wine experiences.

Wine lovers taking holidays to Maldives in December can expect to have a merry Christmas indeed as they get the chance to participate in two unique wine-tasting events. From 5th to 10th December 2011 the head of Antinori wines, Stefano Leone will be staying at the resort and not precisely to enjoy Maldives holidays but to to offer fellow guests wonderful wine experiences.

Between the 7th and 9th December, Leone will be hosting a Food and Wine event, putting diners in pairs at the resort's underground wine cellars. The price for this unique dining and wining experience will be based per person and the extravagant five-course dinner will include as many as 8 different wines especially imported from the reputable Antinori estate in Tuscany. While tucking into delicious and succulent gourmet cuisines, oenophiles will have the chance to taste a Montenisa Brut; Scalabrone rose 2010; Cervaro Castello della Sala, 2008; Chianti Classico Tenute Marchese riserva, 2007; a horizontal 2007 tasting of Guado al Tasso, Tignanello, Solaia; Muffato della Sala; ending the feast with a soothing Grappa Tignanello, a delicate digestif.

Representing the Chateau Latour brand of wines, Frederic Engerer will be mixing work with pleasure as he heads to Maldives holidays on 28th December for a wine tasting event that will end on 3rd January 2012. As part of the events planned on his calendar, Engerer will be hosting a total of three magnificent degustation dinners; one at the gourmet Ithaa undersea restaurant on 28th December, which will come at a price of S$780 per person; a second one in The Wine Cellar on 30th December and another one at the over-water Mandhoo restaurant on 2nd January, one of Conrad Maldives Rangali's most stunning and panoramic restaurants. The dinners will include all wines, a pre-dinner champagne and a selection of fine canapes as appetisers followed by the dinner itself.

At dinners from the Chateau Latour wine event, each course will be accompanied by wines from the Chateau Latour estate collection with food lovingly prepared by the resort’s Executive Chef Mark Rowsell Turner to match each wine. The dinners promise to be sparkling evenings with lively conversation centering on fine food and the best wines.

“These wine dinners will be a wonderful intimate experience,” said Conrad Maldives Rangali's Sommelier, Michael Arcena. “The Wine Cellar only seats 12 guests around a long table so everyone will be able to speak in person to him and ask any and all questions they may have about the wine”.
