A Gonzalez Byass Wine Dinner @ Grand Hyatt KL

Up till this point, I had never heard this word spoken as often as I did this past week, Bodegas. And when you talk about Bodegas, you talk about Sherry. Bodegas are actually storage houses where sherry is aged and matured. And up till today, I only knew of one sort of Sherry. The sweet […]

Cape Mentelle Degustation with Cameron Murphy @ Tanzini

Cape Mentelle wines are one of our favourites from Margaret River, not just because they excite our palates, but because while they are highly drinkable, they are affordable as well.

Yves Cuilleron Wine Dinner at Casa del Rio, Melaka

The last time we had the pleasure of meeting Yves Cuilleron, it was roughly a year and a half ago, at another wine dinner in KL. Back then, Yves hardly spoke a word of English – he was friendly enough, but the language barrier was evident. Now, a year and a half later, we meet […]
