Royal Cliff’s DeVine Wine Club Experiences an Italian Affair to Remember
Royal Cliff’s DeVine Wine Club recently held a successful “A Di…Vino Affair” Italian Wine Dinner. The Royal Cliff Hotels Group’s multi-award winning Royal Grill Room & Wine Cellar was once again a showcase of sophistication, class and pure elegance. It began with an elegant cocktail reception at the Sunset Terrace Lobby & Bar of the Royal Cliff Beach Terrace and was followed by a five course dinner featuring a unique display of creative Italian dishes. The spectacular location, beautiful setting and delicious menu created an affair to truly remember.
Mr. Antonello Passa, General Manager of the Royal Cliff Hotels Group and acting President of the DeVine Wine Club had the pleasure of giving a warm welcome speech and introducing the night’s guest speaker, Italian wine expert, Mr. Federico Rainero. Mr. Rainero is the Export Manager at San Patrignano, Falesco and Castello di Cigognola Wineries, which sponsored the event, making him the ultimate specialist and authority on the wines tasted that evening.
The courses paired with the versatile and delightful wines of Northern Italy brought a sense of Mediterranean festivities to the Royal Grill Room & Wine Cellar. The dinner commenced with Italian Antipasti accompanied by then finest Spumante Brut San Patrignano has to offer. The dark chocolate mousse with macarons was the highlight of the Italian festivities as this marvelous desert was sweetened by the Moscato D’Asti D.O.C.G 2014, Bosc D’La Rei which has intense aromas of peaches, rose petals and ginger.
Royal Cliff’s wine dinners have begun since 2001 and have been a resounding success comprising a sumptuous 5 course dinner paired with premium wines specially selected to enhance each dish.
