Sofitel Wine Days will launch at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth next month offering a blend of wine flavours and experiences for guests and locals alike between 21 September and 31 October 2015. The events are timed to take place over the traditional wine harvest period in France.
Soiree Bar will provide guests and Sydneysiders a taste sensation to write home about, with wine and cheese pairings and insights into the aromatics and flavours of wine, with their very own sommelier. For just $35 per person, guests will receive 2 hand-selected wines carefully matched with a unique selection of cheeses – blue, soft ripen, hard and wash rind.
French wine Friday will be the order of the day in Soiree Bar during October. To start the weekend with a splash, on top of an array of refreshing champagne cocktails such as a black raspberry royale, bellinis and mimosas, an exclusive pop-up wine bar serving Veuve Clicquot and Moët by Moët Hennessey will keep guests hydrated.
On 15 October, an exclusive event will take place for in-house guests staying in luxury club suites. French wine expert Dourthe will host a private Le Club Millesime wine tasting. Guests will have the opportunity to discuss grape varietals, vinification and the science of wine, with tastings of a selection of wines from France and across the world.
