What do you do when you step into a barbershop? You drink wine. Well, you did so as Truefitt & Hill, the world’s oldest luxurious barbershop, co-hosted a wine-tasting event at their Khar store with the Wines of India and sommelier Nikhil Agarwal, director, All Things Nice. Also present were Istayak Ansari, director and co-founder, Lloyds Luxuries Ltd. and Krishna Gupta, MD, Lloyds Luxuries Ltd.
It turned out to be a fun evening aimed at engaging their members and patrons over wine and delicious finger food.
The wines sipped and savoured included York Sparkling Cuvee Blanc de Blancs NV with perfumed characters of lemons and secondary characters of cheese and butterscotch, Casablanca Rose Spumante NV bursting with fruit and floral notes, Revielo Chardonnay Reserve 2012 with intense initial vanilla notes followed by fruit notes of pineapple, melon and citrus fruit, Vallonne Rose 2014 full bodied, delicate and refreshing wine with enticing notes of cherry, plum, melons and berries, Grover La Reserve Red 2012 with a powerful bouquet of luscious ripe fruits and exquisite hint of spice with blackberries blackcurrant and vanilla aromas and Sula Rose Shiraz 2014, a complex wine with power and finesse.
