Good wines, good food, good music and good company…
It’s the perfect formula for a great evening on any given day, but at the Fratelli Vineyards’ dinner at the chic Stax Lounge at Hyatt Regency, it became a night to remember!
Here are a few memorable moments from the specially-crafted, 5-course Italian dinner, paired with the best of Fratelli wines by Brand Director and wine dude Craig Wedge –
The simple yet simply outstanding 30-yolk Pasta with Black Truffles and 2-year aged Parmesan shavings, paired with the bold and beautiful blended MS Red, that would count amongst my top 5 dishes in the city.
The always-jovial Craig’s adventure stories from near and far, and his howlarious Hindi words 😝
Everyone joining in on The Beatles ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ with the talented crooner on stage, and then G-Man joining him, booming out his own solo version of ‘Annie’s Song’.
And yes, the beautiful Maracaibo Chocolate Slice and Olive Cake dessert, with little wine pearls and freeze-dried strawberries, paired with the deliciously mature, barrel-aged Sette red wine that ended the night on an ambrosial high 🙂
As I raise a toast to more such evenings, I leave you with one of the most beautiful lines written, from an equally beautiful song called ‘Don’t Know Why’ by Norah Jones…
My heart is drenched in wine,
But you’ll be on my mind
