Renowned Tuscan and Umbrian wine makers since 1385, the Antinori family now counts 26 generations of distinguished wine makers carrying on the tradition of their founding patriarch Giovanni di Piero Antinori.The Menu - Antinori Wine Evening
Today, Marchese Piero Antinori leads the family business together with his three daughters - Albiera, Allegra and Alessia; all fiercely committed to preserving a family name that has become synonymous with fine quality Italian wine.
Over their more than 600 year history, the Antinori family have created a wine making empire under the A dal Mondo banner that exploits the diverse terroirs available in Italy, California (USA), Washington State (USA), Hungary, Chile and Malta. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods.
On Saturday, November 7, 2009, the Export Manager of Antinori, Jacopo Pandolfini, will be on hand to help guide a select and privileged group of diners at the Ayana Resort's Dava Restaurant through pre-dinner cocktails and a five-course tasting menu prepared by Chef William Gumport paired with 5 Antinori vintages.
The evening begins at 7:00 p.m. with pre-dinner cocktails at the River Pool next to Dava, Ayana's signature-fine dining restaurant.
Seating is strictly limited and reservations are essential by calling +62-(0)361-702222 at a cost of Rp. 1 million plus 21% tax and service (US$121) per person. Costs covers cocktails, the five-course dinner and paired Antinori Wines.
