Bali’s first Wine Auction was held on Sunday, December 11, 2011, in the ballroom of the AYANA Resort and Spa Bali.
Nearly 150 participants participated in a “brown bag”
wine tasting – a blind sampling of wines with the vintages only identified after the tasting concluded.
The highlight of the afternoon was an auction of 24 lots of wine, luxury dining experiences, wine books, and accommodation packages. Bidding from the auction website and the auction floor was brisk for the auction items with an overall value exceeding US$20,000.
Proceeds for the day will be donated to a wine education fund for young Indonesian hospitality workers administered by the Bali Hotels Association (BHA).
The Bali Wine Auction
was created by Lotus Food Services
– the purveyor of quality food and beverages to Bali’s hospitality industry.
Acting as main sponsors for the tasting and auction were the AYANA Resort and Spa Bali, Artisan Estate Wines, Bogocitra Nusapratama
and King Island Dairy.
