Good news to wine lovers in Penang!

Thanks to Four Points by Sheraton Hotel for inviting us to the launch of Wines of the World.

Let's start the wine tasting session!

De Bortoli Sparkling Brut N/V (Australia)
Glass - RM60+ Bottle - RM250+
N/V means non-vintage, which is usually a blend from the produce of two or more years.


Gilbert Voo from Albert Wines gave us introduction on the wines we were tasting.

Compare a sparkling wine (left) and white wine (right).
Sparkling wine contains of carbon dioxide that makes it fizzy!
That explains the bubbles inside the sparkling wine.
Besides, sparkling wine would requires a tulip-shaped glass.
Same as champagne, this shape could keep the bubbles intact for longer time.
It also ensures the best aroma and flavor while drinking.

Even the bar stools are so comfortable to chill and relax!

Some fingers food were provided too during the wine tasting session.

Wine and cheese make a good pair!


Starting with 3 different white wines...

Bianco, Frescobaldi Remole Toscana (Italy) Left

Parellada Torres Mas Rabell (Spain) Right
Glass - RM35+ Bottle - RM150+

Sauvignon Blanc, Deen Bortoli Vat 2 (Australia)
