The Kingsbury brings the world of exquisite vino to Colombo Been contemplating a visit to the Yarra or the Napa Valleys for a wine-tasting adventure? Maybe the Bordeaux and Champagne Provinces have been calling out to you? Never found the time to indulge yourself in the fine art of wine-tasting and pairing? Well, now the purveyor of the good life in hospitality, The Kingsbury, is offering you an opportunity to indulge in a buffet of exquisite vino from around the world, sans the travel. Indulge yourself in The Kingsbury lifestyle as you savour the nectar of fine vintages with your very own sommelier at hand. Savour the fragrant, floral bouquets of a 2006 Chardonnay from the premium Yarra produce, taste the sweetness of honey and nectar, the balance of toasty oak and note how the rich, fine palate ticked with delightful citrus fruit pairs well for seafood. Maybe a 2005 Pinot Noir from the Napa will interest you. Spicy, with fine rich tannins, silky, intense berry fruit balanced with subtle oak infusions, your sommelier will show you how to pair this indulgent wine with poultry, reserved for a special occasion. Work your way through The Kingsbury’s “A Vineyard of Variety” wine buffet and take a tour of the world of wines at The Ocean, The Kingsbury from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., “All you can drink” for Rs. 1,200 (all inclusive) per person.
