A clear sign of a good time is happy people, gathering in its truest sense, hosting chatting and laughing, while enjoying delicious cuisine. At a ‘vin de table’ tasting you can learn from your fellow tasters, as well as make new friends who share your interest. Most importantly, you can taste wine in the company of certain individuals who are more experienced than you, which is a real boon to test your palate.
Treshan Weerasooriya Pereira, the Founder of Haut Monde Event Management organised the Sparkling Days event at the Asylum Restaurant & Lounge Bar. In a relaxed, fun, and unforgettable tasting experience, guests gathered at a shared table, to enjoy an array of dishes paired with hand-selected artisan bubbly and vinos.
A selective crème de la crème of the Colombo society was present at the event to keep it exclusive. It was a sit-down dining experience with a three-course meal followed by desserts. Four different types of vin de table were paired with each course and a renowned wine sommelier from WS23 conducted an interactive session.
The venue glittered with candle lights and attractive flower décor making your presence felt in the midst of a beautiful variety of blooms and ornaments. The arrangement was loaded with texture, brightening the space. The warm hues and rustic textures of floral made an elegant and stunning display at the dining table.
Here are some of the value-added Brands, which were a part and parcel of this event:
