What do you do at 4.30 p.m. on a Thursday? You drink wine and, in fact, you drink 10 different wines till 6.30 p.m! Well, you did so as InterContinental Marine Drive along with Ace Beveragez redefined the concept of drinking wine through its fun-dining gastrobar Long & Short.
Guests relished an eclectic range of premium wines, paired with the most delectable high tea hors d’oeuvres, as the evening deconstructed the formal air around wine drinking.
Starting with a glass of crisp Foss Marai Cardinal Treviso Extra Dry DOC, followed by a guided wine tasting by Ace Beveragez’s wine consultant Ajit Balgi, those present got to try these premium wines: Adet Seward Chablis, Antares Sauvignon Blanc, Carpineto Dogajolo Bianco IGT, Argento Chardonnay, Folonari Pinot Noir IGT, Leopard’s Leap Look Out Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Cinsaut, Argento Malbec, Michele Chairlo Barolo DOCG and a sparkling finish with Drappier Caret d’Or Brut.
The specially crafted menu by the hotel’s executive chef Arzooman Irani included Vietnamese rice paper roll, cheese tofu mash, micro herbs and pansy; smoke salmon mousse on arugula blinis, salmon roe and chives; honey garlic rosemary infused baked camembery, chili almond biscotti; herb crusted sea bass, chilly tamarind sauce, pumpkin mash to name a few, paired perfectly with the assortment of wines.
