The Sun had set, the temperature dropped, and the late evening was upon us. There was excitement in the air and with a backdrop of the Dubai Marina skyline the stage was set at Emirates Golf Club, but this was for something more than just a round of Golf.
On Thursday 19th April, we held the AOP Spring Client Cheese & Wine night, courtesy of Jones the Grocer at Emirates Golf Club.
Having held the event in December 2017 we chose a new venue & partner, offering a varied experience of bites, grapes and live music to set the mood and give something back to our loyal clients.
With an unlimited cheese board consisting of Manchego, Brie De Meaux, Blue De Caisses, Buche Jacquin Herbes and Keen’s Cheddar. Flavours that were soft, strong and bitey and a fine selection of Fondue with Breads, Grisini and Antipasti there was enough to satisfy even the biggest of appetites.
This was all washed down by a wine selection that didn’t disappoint with Whites giving subtle taste and zesty flavours from Chardonnay to Sauvignon and Semillon. Bold Reds from Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet hitting the spot with big fruity undertones. Also, a Zinfandell that was like a glass full of strawberries, whatever your taste there was something for everyone.
The ambience was ever flowing with a live band giving us a twist on modern Jazz and funky covers. There were even a few movers and shakers at the dancefloor! The setting was great and the people were wonderful. A fantastic evening enjoyed by all, with a request for the next one to be sooner rather than later.
