Brilliant wine-tasting evening

On 20th October, SALA Samui Resort and Spa hosted an evening of very delectable wines courtesy of Pegasus Bay. The wine-tasting was accompanied by paired finger foods which went extraordinarily well with the wines. The Pegasus Bay winery is located in Waipara Valley in New Zealand, just north of Christchurch. A range of hills protects the bay from the winds of the Pacific Ocean, allowing grapes to have a prolonged ripening period and resulting in superb quality wines.

The winery is an entirely family-run operation; the Donaldsons have been seriously involved with wine for almost half a century and now export their wines to 25 different countries. Edward Donaldson, who is marketing manager, gave a short speech at the wine-tasting. Everybody seemed to have a really good time, sampling the wines that had come all the way from New Zealand, and the food that SALA Samui had specially made for the occasion. With Samui being increasingly well-known as a gourmet’s paradise, good wines such as those from Pegasus Bay are sure to please diners.
