Out of the blue hosted a wine gala, which certainly sent the wine admirers into a wine heaven. Some refreshing and soulful live jazz music playing and an array of wines from across the globe made the evening truly enjoyable. The wine bazaar displayed a number of top wine brands and sellers like The Wine kart, Reveilo, Grover Zampa, Berkmann, Wine Park, York and more. The tasting was interesting with friendly interactions with the representatives of the brands.
We tasted a number of wines teamed with some olives and cheese. Starting with the York Chenin Blanc, which was quite a winner. Then, we went ahead to try a couple of varieties from The Wine Park, which included Rosso, NV and their MAN Family Wines, Pinotage, 2012, refreshing, fruity and flavourful notes, we are definitely ordering in from here. After a couple of rounds around the venue, we hopped to the Grover Zampa wines stall to try their Zampa Rosé. Served chilled with confusing notes, this one didn’t quite impress us so we gave the other Zampa wines a miss!
From here, we headed straight to try the Mannara Merlot by Berkmann which had a beautiful purple tinge with aromas of vanilla and chocolate and a chocolate-y after taste. We were in some vino heaven only to drool over some Bibi Graetz Casamatta, a beautiful Tuscany wine by The Wine Kart.
We saved the best for the last, our last stop was the Revelio wine counter. Their Late Harvest Chenin Blanc was the only dessert wine at the tasting and was certainly the perfect end to out wine trail.
Entry to Wine Bazaar costed Rs. 500, inclusive of taxes, per person.
