Bordeaux Wines Come to Bali for Special Culinary Evening

This sounds like a blast for oenophiles and foodies: Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa in Bali will host an exclusive wine dinner event on Friday, April 20. The SOS Supper Club will offer selections from Bordeaux vineyards, with Grand Cru wines from 16 chateaux accompanied by live food stations.

Guests will arrive at the rooftop dining deck to look over the Indian Ocean while sipping Louis Roederer Champagne and sampling canapés.

Barriere Freres is a négociant based in Bordeaux, France, and throughout the special evening, 16 Grand Cru Classé Chateau owners from the region will describe and offer tastings of their wines. Guests can sample vintages from 2001 to 2008, including varieties that we hear are "reassuringly expensive."

To complement the Bordeaux wines, Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa's Executive Chef is offering cuisine to match. The fish station will offer walnut crusted salmon, beetroot risotto and horseradish beurre blanc. Foie gras enthusiasts can try seared foie gras with caramelised mango and brioche.  The roast leg of lamb is stuffed with garlic, and the braised beef short ribs and goat cheese-stuffed piquillo peppers are highlights of the BBQ.  There will also be a crepe station and a range of French dishes, from coq au vin to beef bourguignon and cassoulet duck with Toulouse sausage. To help celebrate the elite wine varieties being served, a cheese and charcuterie counter also features chicken liver mousse, truffle honey, delicious dips and nibbles. 

The Anantara Seminyak Resort & Spa is located at Jl. Abimanyu (Dhyana Pura) in Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia. Visit bali.anantara.com for more information.
