Shangri-La Introduces Chateau Les Valentines

Maldives Promotion House – This October Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa is introducing a new wine that has been gaining fame. Shangri-La will play host to Mr. Gilles Pons on 24th October 2011. Mr. Pons will introduce you to a selection of wines from his own winery, the Château Les Valentines.

The Wine and Dine event, at the Fashala Lounge from 07:00 PM until 10:00 PM, will be open for guests at a rate of USD 150 per person. Prices are subject to 10 percent Service Charge and 3.5 percent Goods and Services Taxes.

Awarded by Wine Spectator magazine as the Best Newcomer Winery for their Rosé and single vineyard Red wine, Château Les Valentines is a new fast-growing winery in Provence, France.

Mr. Pons’ vineyard has old vines and is a treasure-trove for any quality producer because according to experts, the few very small grapes they produce contain intensely flavoured juice. Mr. Pons is also using the best modern winemaking techniques to turn these same grapes into superb wines.

One of the best wines produced by the vineyard is the Château Les Valentines, Côte de Provence Rosé 2008. Though it might be considered a little too expensive for a Rosé, the taste is marvellous and worth every dollar.

With its pale and delicate salmon colour, it also has a slightly intense flavour, which gives it a feminine charm. This mouth-filling flavoured wine with a hint of elegant restraint, is also the perfect wine with which to toast one’s valentine or any romantic occasion for that matter.
