Looks like I got a bumper offer last week. The taste of Four Seasons wines had hardly faded away when I got another invitation for a wine-tasting session on the 11th of July from The Calcutta Wine Club, this time to savour Four Seasons wines at Saffron, The Park.
We reached the hotel almost on time. And as always, Mr Mitter was right at the reception and escorted us graciously to our tables. There were around 50 to 60 people in the room, and all the faces were unfamiliar. I and Mr A took the a four sitter table where a beautiful women was already sitting. The strange and umm.. what do call.. may be the ‘out of the place’ feeling gradually faded when the beautiful women sitting opposite to us started interacting with us.
In the mean time Mr. Abhay Kewadkar, the Director of Four Seasons Wine arrived and just after a few minutes briefed all the guests with an introduction regarding what goes behind the making of each bottle of Four Seasons Wines. In parallel we were being served by an efficient team of waiters, and our glasses were never being left devoid of wine, nor our plates with some delicious starters.
We started off with white wine and the first wine they served was the Sauvignon Blanc with mushroom and cheese tart and Fish in Garlic Butter Sauce. I am not a fan of white wine, I would say wine was sort of ok. The second white wine they served was the Viognier which was paired with Paneer Shatoosh kebab and Meat Balls in Peppercorn Sauce. The wine served in such lovely combination with the starters made it even more great. Finally it was the time for my favorite red wine, the ‘Barrique Reserve Shiraz’ with Grilled marinated Assorted vegetabes in olive oil and Murgh Kothmiri Seekh Kebab. This tasted pretty awesome. The last wine they served was Barrique Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon paired with Alloo and Corn Tikki and Ghost Multani Seekh. This was again another lovely combination.
While the wine tasting was going on we also got incredible privilege to talk to the Four Seasons Director, Mr Abhay Kewadkar with whom we had a nice tete-a-tete on wine, and Four Season’s forthcoming ventures.
