Puerto Vallarta - Leading premium wine supplier Sea Coast Wines and high-end villa rentals Casa Valerie, are pairing fine wines with delectable hors d’oeuvres created by celebrated chef Seth Cloutman, within two stunning Villas to produce two very different, but equally memorable, evenings. As a special treat, the last tasting of each night will also include a carefully selected truffle from artisan chocolatier Xocodiva.
On Saturday, January 29th at 7:00 pm, the beautiful Casa Valerie in the Mismaloya highlands will feature a night of Pinots. From a Pinot Gris from Oregon to a Pinot Noir from Chile, guests will enjoy four pairings and will learn about the process of making a Pinot and what to look for, all with the dramatic backdrop of Los Arcos from Casa Valerie’s grand terrace.
Once you step out onto Casa Valerie’s terrace, you’ll know why this villa, one of Mismaloya’s original Villas, is the only villa in Banderas Bay to ever be featured on the cover of Travel + Leisure Magazine.
The following weekend, Friday, February 4th, at 7:00 pm, the spectacular Villa Real del Mar in the gated community of the same name on Vallarta’s North Shore, will transform into an Italian villa as guests will enjoy a variety of five Italian selections.
From the full-bodied Sangiovese blend to the complex Brunello di Montalcino, guests will savor the best from the Italian vineyards. The evening will take place among the remarkable open-air spaces of Villa Real del Mar, whose bi-level terrace and expansive living room looks back across the bay to Vallarta’s twinkling lights.
Tickets for the Pinot evening are $500 Pesos per person and the Italian experience is $600 Pesos per person and include the hors d’oeuvre and wine pairings, chocolate truffle, taxes and tip. Space is limited. To reserve your space today, email your reservation request with what night you would like to attend to PVWineTasting(at)hotmail.com. A reply email will be sent with a confirmation number, balance due (if not prepaying) and driving instructions.
Tickets can also be obtained by calling Sea Coast Wines at 322-182-5511 or in person at Xocodiva, open daily from 10 am – 10 pm, located at Rodolfo Gomez #118, across from the San Marino Hotel in the Romantic Zone.
