Tabanan, Bali -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/29/2012 -- Alila Villas Soori recently had the honour of welcoming prominent and creative winemaker, Antoine Billecart, to the island's west coast to host a special private dinner. True wine lovers would easily associate his family name with one of the first rose Champagnes made in 1830.
His family's tradition in innovative winemaking – and Champagnes – has 'sparkled' since the company's founding in 1818.
The resort hosted 12 shortlisted guests who had the privilege of being served by Antoine at an exceptional feast. The event saw him cooking off for the high profile patrons and entertaining them with the Billecart-Salmon Champagnes he specifically brought in for this rare, fun and ‘sparkling’ occasion.
Together with Alila’s splendid Executive Chef Ashton Hall, Antoine presented his Billecart-Salmon Extra Brut 2004 with scallop and coral sauce and Billecart-Salmon Blanc de Blancs NV with red snapper and basmati rice. Billecart-Salmon Nicolas Francois 2000 was superbly paired with the chicken supreme and seasonal vegetables, and the Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose NV 2008 with the poached pears and gateau of rose biscuits.
