MONTEGO BAY, St James
SHOPPES at Rose Hall was transformed into a wine lover's paradise recently as enthusiasts poured out in their numbers to enjoy delicious food offerings being served up by Robbie Joseph, Marguerite's, Olexis Hung and celebrated chef Brian Lumley.
With the vino flowing freely from purveyors such as Select Brands, Lascelles, Chas E Ramson, Caribbean Producers Jamaica Ltd, and J Wray and Nephew in a most tranquil setting, one would hardly have noticed the time ebbing away.
Wine 13 Wine and Food Tasting is an annual fund-raising initiative and is the brainchild of Michelle Daswani. The event, which gives support to projects by the Rotary Club of Montego Bay, has carved out an enviable niche on the social calendar in the resort city. With the added attraction of a live band, works of art by artist Lisa Lej and vehicles from ATL Autohaus, those in attendance could attest that it was an evening well spent.
