A Guided Tour of the World's Great Wines

A Three-Day Exploratory Journey of Fine Wine Led by Sommelier Harald Wiesmann April 16-18, 2009.


Harald Wiesmann, the personable Restaurant Manager and Sommelier of the Kayuputi at The St. Regis Bali Resort is preparing to lead a small group of fortunate wine aficionados on an exciting tour of the world of wine. Wiesmann will contact a three-day introductory course on wine April 16-18, 2009 at The St. Regis Bali Resort.
