Wine lovers rejoice, Seminyak Wine Carnival lands this September
Hosted at VIN+ the day event is a celebration of the island’s best food and drink.
Bali-based food and wine lovers best grab their diaries, for a special new event is on the horizon set to celebrate the best of the island’s drinking and dining scene. Taking place on September 7 is Seminyak Wine Carnival, hosted by wine specialist VIN+ at its central outpost in the middle of town from 1.00pm.
More than 1500 guests can expect a day of tasting, learning, buying and celebrating with some of the island’s top foodie talent. Some of Bali’s best restaurants will be present (Ubud’s famed Locavore included), who will be treating guests to their adored dishes, all to be partnered with sample wines from around the globe. Of course, it’s not just eating and drinking (though there’s plenty of that to be done); live music will arrive once the sun sets at 7.00pm, with food stands to continue until 9.00pm. Throughout the day masterclasses will take place on the main stage alongside demonstrations. TV presenter and certified plant-based holistic chef Sophie Navita will be leading these proceedings, which will see winemakers, chefs, and mixologists alike impart their knowledge to the crowd.
Wine lovers will also be able to nab a bargain via the hourly wine auctions, discount wines available and special tastings. Artisanal producers will be showcasing their wares, including Rosalie Organic Cheese company, artisan bread makers and other delights. (Full list of participants are updated on the website)
To top it all off Seminyak Wine Carnival will be an eco-friendly event, with the showcase to be plastic-free and environmentally sustainable. All guests will be gifted a branded glass on arrival for wine tastings, and biodegradable cardboard or alternative plates for food.
