Feringgi Grill Hosts the Prestigious Bordeaux Rendez-Vous Wine Event

Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang recently played host to a full-house capacity during Penang’s largest Bordeaux wine event, the Bordeaux Rendez-Vous, at its fine-dining restaurant, Feringgi Grill. 

The Bordeaux Rendez-Vous is an annual and probably the biggest wine event, where 20 owners and ambassadors of different wine chateaux of Bordeaux, France, tour around South East Asia to share their passion for and knowledge on the wine-making process with wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.

Marking its 11th year in 2017, this exclusive event, featuring the very best in French gourmet and wine, won over the hearts of attendees with kudos all around.  Jointly organised by The Wine Shop, the one-night wine extravaganza showcased more than 20 of the best Bordeaux wines specially flown in for the occasion.

Participating wineries include first-growth Chateau Guiraud, second-growth Chateau Rauzan-Segla, third-growth Chateau d’Issan, as well as a number of fourth- and fifthgrowth wineries.

Although wines took centre stage, the cuisine spread at Feringgi Grill also attracted due attention.  Superbly prepared by Feringgi Grill’s French Chef de Cuisine Thibaut Pouplard, the options included a selection of hors d’oeuvres such as Foie Gras Terrine, Duck Breast Salad and Homemade Brioche Sourdough Bread with cheese platter spread. Others include various Japanese Sushi and Sashimi as well as seafood such as scallops, prawns and crabs.

The entrée was Fresh Scallops with Caramelised Cauliflower with Raisin Emulsion, while the main course was a choice of either Roasted Lamb Cutlets, Ricotta with Garlic and Mint, and Beef Rib Eye with Sweet Potato Puree, Spinach and Pistachio.

“The primary objective of this event is to promote the love of good wines by linking some of the most prestigious Bordeaux estates with Bordeaux lovers in South East Asia.  This event is probably the most important Bordeaux event ever organised in South East Asia.  It is a unique occasion to meet up with Chateaux owners,” said the resort’s resident manager, Nick Flynn.

This year’s Bordeaux Rendez-Vous tour is scheduled to have stopovers in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Hanoi and Hong Kong.
