Joie de Vivre in Bali

Opus One Degustation Dinner at the Mulia Bali on Thursday, December 6, 2012


One of the greatest collaborations of the winemaking world occurred when the legendary Rothschild clan joined enological forces with the Napa Valley, California family of Robert Mondavi.

The famed Baron Philippe de Rothschild assumed control of the Château Mouton Rothschild at the tender age of 20. Acknowledge among wine experts as an innovator and visionary, Philippe introduced Château bottling, wine labels commissioned to great artists and the bold partnering of Old World and New World winemaking by forming a partnership with Robert Mondavi in 1979, giving birth to one of today’s most respected wines – Opus One.

Unfortunately, death claimed Philipe in 1980, shortly after his collaboration with Mondavi was formed, to be replaced by his daughter Baroness Philippine de Rothschild who left a promising stage career to turn her full attentions to furthering the development of Opus One.

Until his death in 2008 and through the following years, Robert Mondavi’s name still remains inseparable from a reputation for excellence in winemaking, a reputation earned in over six decades of dedication to his craft.

Mondavi’s dedication to wine was, in fact, a dedication to life well lived with his winery in Napa Valley serving as the center for the enjoyment of fine cuisine, good music, dance and, of course, exquisite wines.

Prior to his death, Mondavi’s commitment to  joie de vivre – so admirably reflected in his Opus One Range of wines, saw Mondavi honored by the French government with the Legion d’Honneur for his incomparable work in advancing winemaking and cooperation between the French and American people.

Elegant Start for Bali’s Newest Resort

To celebrate the opening of The Mulia, Mulia Resort & Villas, Nusa Dua and herald its dawning commitment to excellence in all things, the legendary wines of Opus One will be paired with a six-course degustation menu on Thursday, December 6, 2012

The evening commences at 7:00 pm with a pre-dinner gathering over canapés and Tattinger Champagne. Dinner commences after Champagne with six-carefully prepared courses paired with Opus Wine vintages form 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and the just-released 2009 bottling.
