Winning Wine Launching at Grand Magherita Hotel

I was invited by Eileen (Marketing & Communications Officer of Grand Margherita Hotel & Riverside Majestic Hotel[thats a pretty long title]) to have a look at the Winning Wine Launch at the Grand Magerita on the 6th August 2010 at the Rajang Lobby Lounge

rajang lobby loungeI have not been to the Rajang Lobby Lounge since the renovation, I must say I am liking what the management have done so far both at Riverside Majestic Hotel and Grand Margherita Hotel. Cozy and comfortable. 

Let me start off and say that my experience with wine is very limited. Close friends will know I do not drink much of alcohol at all. Further more from past experiences, I could not stabilize the camera when I'm buzzed. Very frustrating ! 

When I got to the venue there were already many press people around. Saw a few friends there and decided to check out whats available.

Wine listPrice looks pretty decent, and with the Privilege Card I think I can get away with another -10% off.

Chong was giving a good presentation of details of the Wine and Champagnes that was being launched. Also recommended us to try the meats / seafood and cheese which was suppose to compliment to bring out the best of the wine. The presentation was good, he knows what he was talking about.
