Howard Park Wine Dinner at Cape Lodge


By Michael Whyte, Sales Manager - Burch Family Wines

Cape Lodge’s Executive Chef, Tony Howell and Alila Villa Soori West Bali Executive Chef, Ashton Hall crafted a gastronomic experience to compliment the nuances of a selection of Howard Park wines on Saturday, 19th May 2012.

Guests were introduced to the Jeté Sparkling White NV (Methode Traditionelle) on arrival with canapés, followed by a six course degustational menu which showcased the regional produce including Marron and Venison; knowing the wines they had for the evening including a Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon).

The chefs compiled the menu that afternoon whilst in the vege garden adjacent to the kitchen, it was sensational!

The duo are now planning a repeat performance around August at Ashton’s resort in Bali, again with a glass or two or Howard Park wines.
