Wine evolution or wine revolution? – Dinner at the Boathouse Bar & Grill

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: There is more to question about the glass of wine on your dining table than the usual “Is it half full or half empty?” The world’s thirst for wine has turned fermented grape juice into a precious commodity, and what used to be, and luckily in many places still is, considered art, has been turned by the forces of free market and greed into an industry – the wine industry.

This industry, in today’s fast-moving and highly competitive world, faces a dilemma – whether to remain true to centuries of winemaking traditions, or resort to innovative, more profitable methods which may damage wine quality.

The Boathouse by Montara is asking dinner guests to experiment, and judge for themselves. Its flagship restaurant, Boathouse Wine & Grill, is hosting an interactive “Wine Evolution or Wine Revolution?” dinner on the private sunset deck overlooking Kata Beach on Friday, March 28 from 7pm.

“This is a unique event very much in line with Boathouse Wine & Grill’s pioneering role in the wine service industry, not only in Thailand but also Southeast Asia,” said Mr Santiago Lopez, director of food and beverage at Boathouse by Montara.

“We therefore came up with this revolutionary concept rather than staging a regular wine dinner with a particular wine estate or a type of wine,” added Mr Lopez.

The interactive dinner, especially created by Executive Chef Bryan Burger, will transport diners on a culinary journey showcasing a unique menu creation, combining Boathouse’s classic elements and “youthful” specialties to be paired with traditional and modern wines, meticulously selected by Georges Ciret – Boathouse’s wine director, who has over 30 years of experience as a sommelier to prestigious hotels worldwide.

Mr Ciret will accompany diners on a vinous journey, back and forth in time, and to several wine regions of Italy, including Brunello and Barolo.

Guests who pay 2,900+++ baht or 3,413 baht inclusive of a Champagne cocktail reception will have a chance to taste “anchovy, tomato essence and crackers with scallop tartar”; “veal cheek braised in Asian spices”; “Wagyu strip-loin and oxtail with heirloom carrots and jus” and much more.

For reservations or more information, please call Boathouse by Montara on 076-330015, ext. Boathouse Wine & Grill.
