Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to The Cellar Signature at One City USJ for their launching event of Provinage, the first New World Wine Club in Malaysia in collaboration with VCT Group of Wineries Asia. The event was officiated by HE Rodrigo Perez Manriquez, Ambassador of Chile to Malaysia.
How much do you know about New World Wine? Many Malaysians assume that the Old World Wine is better than the New World Wine but this is not true. Both are equally good and paired well with fine cuisine.
The New World Wine has been under-rated by the Old World Wine in Malaysia, and Provinage aims to promote the understanding and appreciation of the New World Wine through education and tasting, while developing a social group for people who are interested in the New World Wine.
Provinage aims to have 100 exclusive members by invitation. The club will be organizing monthly wine talks and wine tasting event for the public. Members will have exclusive privileges to wine and dine at The Cellar Signature, hotel room with eCity Hotel and also annual organized trip to the New World Wine Vineyards. Digital 4.0 will also be deployed in the club too where members can share, learn and grow with each other through the Provinage Social Media platform.
Provinage will be organizing the first New World Wine Expo in One City USJ on September 2018 supported by the Embassy of Chile and Chilean Trade Commission in Malaysia. Further details will be announced later.
Chef Kenny Chin, head chef of The Cellar Signature with years of experience from his stint with Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur and other 5-star hotels created a list of gastronomical cuisine to pair and complement the New World Wine. The Cellar Signature offers 5,600 square feet of venue space to host multi-concept dining experience with Parties, Lounge and Sports.
Aglio olio with sauteed garlic and argula in virgin olive oil, simple comfort pasta dish to fill up the tummy with satisfaction.
Who can resist digging into a well char-grilled ribeye?! Served together with beet root puree and roasted herbs potatoes, this mouth-watering meat dish has won my heart during the meal with its remarkable taste, truly flavoursome.
We tried the Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2015 and Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere 2014 by Viña Concha Y Toro while sampling Chef Kenny’s delicious specialties. Founded in 1883, Viña Concha y Toro has become the largest wine company in Latin America. It is the fifth company in the world in terms of traded volume, and second in area of planted grapevines. It currently has more than 10,800 hectares of vineyards in Chile, Argentina and the United States. Its wine portfolio includes icons Don Melchor and Almaviva, and its emblematic Casillero del Diablo brand, as well as Trivento wines from Argentina, and Fetzer and Bonterra from California.
Its exporting spirit and successful business model has allowed it to grow and be present in 147 countries, becoming the main exporter of Chilean wine. Several awards and recognitions confirm its leading position in the global wine industry, including “World’s Most Powerful Wine Brand” 2014 and 2015 in the ranking of the British consultancy firm Intangible Business, and “International Best Drinks Company of the Year 2015” by The Drinks Business Awards.
Casillero del Diablo is a unique, global wine with a strong heritage. More than 100 years ago, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro set aside some of his best wines. To keep strangers away, he spread the rumor that the devil lived in this cellar. Hence the name Casillero del Diablo. No one was ever able to confirm the existence of his cellar’s guardian. Now the legend lives on. Their collection of wines are made with grapes from Chile’s best wine valleys, portraying the essence and typicity of its variety with a combination of carefully cultivated aromas, flavours and styles.
