7th Pune Wine Tasting Festival
14th- 15th December, 2013 Rohi Villa, Koregaon Park

A Fun Wine and Food Affair


26 - dec - 13

The 7th Annual Pune Wine Tasting Festival which was held recently at a plush facility featured well-known wine labels of the likes of Fratelli, Grover Zampa, Four Seasons, York, Pause, Kiara, Charosa, Rio, Seven Peaks, Rhythm, Myra and Fusion wines.

The two-day festival offered visitors a mixed bag of wine tasting, wine education and appreciation sessions by experts, cookery shows by leading chefs, a food court featuring a tempting array of choices, jazz on the lawn and exciting contests – all in all, a completely heady experience!

While the festival turned out to be an opportunity for wine enthusiasts to savor and get familiar with a wide array of wines, it also offered them a chance to learn more about wine aroma recognition to learning to distinguish between different varietals, and discovering how to appreciate flavor and bouquet.

Among the many noted personalities present at the festival were Dr. Rajesh Rasal, a renowned oenologist who was seen interacting with wine enthusiasts. Yeyati Nafrey, author of India’s first E-book on wine - 100 Essential Wine Facts conducted wine appreciation sessions and talk on wine, cheese and food pairing. Mahesh Kini, owner of Pune’s newest cutting edge restaurant, Casero, conducted cookery workshops on both days.

The Food Court featured a fabulous range of wine-friendly delights: Cafe Arabia's Middle Eastern shawarma and falafel; Kohinoor’s north Indian dishes, Casero’s Spanish, Turkish, Greek and Moroccan specialties, Tutto Bene’s flame grilled burgers and hot dogs, Sticky Grill’s steaks with rosemary sauce, double bangers and spicy wedges; 96K’s Maratha delights such as mutton sukka, fish fry, kheema patties and kothimbir vadis. Students of Maharashtra Institute of Hotel Management & Catering Technology (MSIHMCT) operated a food stall as an entrepreneurship project and serve up oriental food.

Visitors enjoyed an eclectic collection of a wide variety of cheese including smoked ones. India’s first white mold cheese – Cambrie - and domestic Blue Cheese were also available.  

The festival featured, for the first time, jazz on the lawn in association with Pune Jazz Club. Japanese jazz singer Kiyoko Yamamoto, accompanied by Chris and Fabian who performed on Sunday morning. Danza De La Liga conducted its hugely popular Latin dancing workshops on both days Adding to the excitement will be grape stomping sessions.

Could I make an appointment to see ? Sexy! The muzak is kind of Jazzercise-like, but I like how the caearammn kind of creeps back behind a plant and the leaves of the plant kind of flutter around a little bit I thought he was maybe going to get involved that might have added to the hotness.

With havin so much content and arteilcs do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it. http://hrflcifnwij.com [url=http://rjitmnde.com]rjitmnde[/url] [link=http://xhbtek.com]xhbtek[/link]

There is much talk of ethics as a rluest, as in the WoolfReport, for example, but the real message is that major governanceoverhaul is close to the only real answer.SS Can Spider-Man & Earth’s Mightiest save the world before Doc Ock’sexplosive endgame is revealed? The trouble in Syria in fact the Middle East deeply concerns me as I can't see an end without international intervention but is that the correct course of action. They have done nothing. http://nqihydu.com [url=http://bylskr.com]bylskr[/url] [link=http://uodkkwkue.com]uodkkwkue[/link]

Great article on Bridal Spectacula blog! Especially when you staetd . Pictures are one of the few things that are going to carry on after your wedding, so make that a priority when you’re planning.” This is so true! When I got married *cough* years ago, the first time, I was so young and had no idea the important of photographs. I look at the snapshots and I was so sad at how they turned out. When my hubby, Mrinabh, and I married 3 years ago, almost 2/3 of my wedding budget went to the photographer, and I don't regret a penny of it.
