Press Release Hatten Wines NEW Building & Facilities – Apr 2016
Bali, March 1st 2016. – Hatten Wines opens its new building in Sanur with great expectations for wine education in Bali, with partners Gaggenau, Schott Zwiesel and Toto Kitchen.
Hatten Wines, the Balinese winery, opens a new facility in Sanur, Bali, along with esteemed partners German luxury home appliances Gaggenau, high end glassmakers Schott Zwiesel and elegant cabinetry makers, Toto Kitchen. The new building is a warehouse style building, housing a wine hub bubbling with activities: wine classes, wine tasting, private dining room, wine distribution offices – the Hatten Wines Building becomes the new landmark of Sanur.
This new building houses the distribution company staff members and marketing team of the wine company, but goes far beyond being merely an office facility. By conceptualizing the building as a wine hub, Hatten Wines is expanding its reach to its clients with education in mind. The 21 year old company has now set its eyes on the next generation of wine professionals, wine connoisseurs and amateurs, by creating a venue for training which is opened to all programs related to wine and food and beverage.
The architectural concept remains true to the look of our first wine shop, The Cellardoor: bare bricks, cement, steel and stainless steel. With the ‘loft style’ look of refurbished historical warehousing buildings, and close to the concept of a winery and cellar components, this new construction will be avant-garde in look and feel.
Opened, fun, exposed materials, the interior décor is nothing new in North America, Europe, and even in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. Yet in Bali, alone stood – the wine shop of Hatten Wines, The Cellardoor, with this concept. The playful ‘google style office’ is now recognized as a productive concept, creatively stimulating and also a source of pride for its employees. This philosophy, added to the exposed bricks and cement walls of the refurbished warehouse concept, makes the Hatten Wines building, a must see. The office concept for the 3rd floor is based on the ‘google style’ open plan office, which also includes ‘third spaces’ – spaces within the office where employee can be creative, step back and take a break, meet in a stimulating environment.
For the interior and features, a large number of wood palettes and drums have been turned into furniture by magician carpenter Achmad Zainul, recycled from the Two Islands frozen grapes received in drums and palettes. Recycled materials are found everywhere in the building, from wood palettes to cut bottles and drums.
The wine lifestyle boutique with Schott Zwiesel is the new home ware and décor heaven of Bali, with a collection of exclusive Schott Zwiesel and Jenaer Glas. The boutique called The Cellardoor since 2001, sees a major revamp from its small format of the previous location. The Cellardoor has a signature line of wine accessories and wine tools, locally made alongside imported items and introduces wine jams, vine wood accessories and vine fresh produce (leaves, dolmades, raisins), collectors’ recipe cards, wine gifts and gift packaging. With a large convivial table, the boutique is to host a large Glassware collection from partner products on consignment basis, books, etc. Schott Zwiesel, the World leader in glassware offers a wide range of glassware – from wine to cocktail glasses and pitchers or decanters, Jenaer Glas plates, coffee and tea cups and pots, vases, found nowhere else in Bali.
Alongside unique souvenirs, The Cellardoor is the home Bali’s Kevala Cermamics with an exclusive all white line of unique designs paired seamlessly with the linens collection. The Wine Classroom of the new Hatten Wines building is primarily a trade client relationship, sales and client loyalty tool for the Sales and Marketing tool of PT Hatten Bali. The classes from Hatten Wines range
from wine appreciation in short and long version, restaurant management tools, wine list efficiency management, and a certificate in wine knowledge. Sommelier classes and certification courses will be added to the curriculum later in the year. Opened to associations and organizations in need of training space, the facility is available on rental basis.
As training and certification becomes mandatory in Indonesia, the Food & Beverage industry turns to this new facility for classes supporting the students, young waiters and professionals towards obtaining their certification.

The Private Dining Room is a space to build new relationships with the hospitality and development industry, as well as a bridging venue with the world of arts and traditions.

Acting as a live showroom for both the appliances makers and the cabinetry artists at Toto Kitchen, the Private Dining Room by Gaggenau is a true reflection of the evolution Hatten Wines has seen in its mature years.
