(9/25/2011)

With a tradition of 250 years of wine excellence, it was the father of Francesco Marone Cinzano, Enrico Marone Cinzano, who bought Col d’Orcia, the celebrated Brunello Estate that is located on the southern slope of the Montalchine territory in 1973.

Born in Lausanne, Francesco Marone Cinzano inherited from his father the Col d’Orcia Estate in 1992. The estate extends over 540 hectares and Count Francesco defined the terrior of Col d’Orcia as a land gifted in the production of great red wines. Col d’Orcia produces 800,000 bottles of both red and white wine in a year that is sold in over 70 countries.

His most famous wine is Brunello Di Montalcino - a selection included among the wine pairings for dinner on October 8th.

Exporting their wine-making knowledge to the New World, the Maule Valley venture in Chile was started in 1995 with the Count’s vision to produce a world class wine combining the extraordinary climate and the family wine making tradition in the Caliboro Estate.

With the aim of producing quality wines through research and experimentation, the first wine produced was Erasmo.

A memorable evening awaits at the St. Regis Bali Resort with wines from Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, carefully selected by the Chief Sommelier Harald Wiesmann and paired with culinary selections created by Executive Sous Chef Agung Ardiawan and Chef de Cuisine - Kayuputi, Agung Gede.

This exceptional dining experience commences at 7.00 p.m. with cocktails and canapés at King Cole Bar, followed by the Wine Dinner at 7.30pm in the Astor Ballroom.

Cost for cocktails, dinner and wine pairing is Rp. 1,350,000 (US$150) inclusive 21% tax and service.
