Four Seasons Resorts Bali presents two outstanding dining occasions on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at their Jimbaran Bay property and Saturday, May 19, 2012 at their Sayan – Ubud resort. Center stage at both dinners will be the outstanding wines of Pio Cesare - a winery located in the Piedmont northwest region of Italy.

Pio Cesare is renowned for its range of Piemonte wines. Using Nebbiolo grapes, this region produces Barolo and Barbaresco wines, which have been described by it fans as “drinking velvet.” Other varietals from this region include are Barbera and Dolcetto. Moscato grapes grown in this region produce the sparkling Asti, while Brachetto grapes are employed to make sparkling and sweet wines.

The Pio Cesare Winery was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio. Cesare Pio was an adamant proponent of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and the other great wines of Piemonte.

Centered near the city of Alba, the Pio Cesare Winery owns more than 50 hectares of vineyards, located in the most highly rated and better-exposed areas.

Thursday, May 17, 2012 - Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay

The evening of fine food and wine at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay begins with a sunset cocktail reception accompanied with music of the Rindik players on the resort’s poolside deck from 6.30 – 7:00 pm. A multi-course wine-paired dinner follows at the Taman Wantilan restaurant overlooking Jimbaran Bay.

Italian Chef Samuele Baudoino will present an outstanding five-course degustation menu including smoked duck breast, poached lobster and roasted loin of lamb complimented by pairings of Pio Cesare Wines.

Saturday, May 19, 2012 – Four Seasons Resort at Sayan

Heading for the hills of Bali at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan, the second evening of fine dining and Pio Cesare Wines will also commence with cocktails and canapés at the Lily Pond from 7:00 to 7:30 pm followed by dinner at the picturesque Ayung Terrace suspended above the lush jungle canopy of Sayan Ridge.

The culinary delights of the multi-course dinner will feature bebek (steamed minced duck wrapped in banana leaf), sop kepiting (root spice crab soup) and kambing bumbu rujak (grilled lamb chops) – all expertly prepared by Executive Chef Denny Frederick.

During dinner and the presentation of Pio Cesare Wines, guests will be serenaded by the live performance of a Keroncong Orchestra.
