Chardonnay. The specially-prepared five-course dinner that follows will pair
various Chardonnays, Riesling wines and Pinots with the sumptuous meal,
achieving harmony between the food and drink.
Developed in the
1920s by German philosopher Rudolph Steiner, biodynamic agriculture practices
go beyond organic and enhance productivity in a natural, holistic way. It is a
traditional method of farming guided by the seasons that considers the farm and
the soil as a single living organism. Biodynamic wine is natural, not only
because no chemicals are used, but also because it takes into account the
forces of nature – the seasons, the phases of the moon and planetary
constellations – resulting in wines that have more individuality, and some say,
purity of flavour and balance.
Macao aims to bring the best experiences of all kinds to Macao, not only for
the enjoyment of locals and tourists, but to help Macao develop into a world
centre of tourism and leisure. This unique and innovative wine tasting event is
one of the finest examples of the integrated resort’s long-term commitment to
offer the most exquisite dining experience in all of Macao.
