DAP is located in Wan Chai, in a brand new shopping chic building opposite to hopewell centre, a 2-lv bar. Any of you who've been to Embargo in Diamond plaza, or Shelter in Henry House, it's what its environment is like. Quite hippy and classy bar.
The wine tasting is a fusion of mingling, canapes party, wine lecture , all you can name it...organized by Cytise
They have 6 wines offered: 2 white, 2 rose & 2 red.
5 are AOC and 1 is VDT. Surprisingly it's the VDT which stands out~ I bought one home, though both my dad and me doubt why VDT worths more than $100.
The canapes are delicious, you have...duck breast x2, mandarin on slice of french bread; parma ham with brie cheese on biscuit; last but not least... SCALLOP SUSHI!!!!
Nobody told us what to match it with, I suppose it should.
Since all guests came in different pace, the organizer tries to entertain everyone of us, so she repeats the same explanation again and again, stop in the middle if interrupted by another table and so on...neverending of explanation really mixed up people's taste buds and connections with the wine's origin + history. It'd be better if guests are set on proper chairs, than mingling on the floor, and some on sofas...
I can tell the organizer, who are french couples are very enthrusiastic and passionate towards the wine business, it shd be the venue layout and the format which makes the event looks a bit awkward. If it's a normal wine tasting event / wine dinner, things would turn out to be much better.
Finally, this gathering ends with another dinner at a vietnamese restaurant, where we are more satisfied with beef pho, prawn toast and bun hoi and ending up $50 each...kekeke
Cool night though, inspire me a lot on how a wine gathering should be held~
DAP would be a nice place to CHILL OUT~~~
