Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Pho­tos Pho­ti­ades Dis­trib­u­tors, sole im­porters of the fa­mous French wine house of Bar­ton & Guestier and the Cyprus Som­me­liers As­so­ci­a­tion are or­gan­is­ing a Som­me­lier com­pe­ti­tion on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 30, at 10am at the Karatello Restau­rant in Li­mas­sol. The Bar­ton & Guestier range rep­re­sents the di­ver­sity of French wines from the main wine­grow­ing re­gions: Bordeaux, Loire Val­ley, Bur­gundy, Beau­jo­lais, Rhône Val­ley, Langue­doc, Gas­cony and Cor­sica. With its wide va­ri­ety of wines, Bar­ton & Guestier en­ables con­sumers - from the oc­ca­sional wine drinker to the con­nois­seur - to make a jour­ney through France. En­ti­tled to par­tic­i­pate are all mem­bers of the Cyprus Som­me­liers As­so­ci­a­tion, pro­fes­sion­als from the is­land’s lead­ing ho­tels and restau­rants. Can­di­dates will have to un­dergo four chal­lenges: 1. A writ­ten test with ques­tions on the vi­nus world of France with em­pha­sis on the re­gions, his­tory and wines of Bar­ton and Guestier; 2. A blind tast­ing of a white and a red and iden­ti­fy­ing five spir­its and dis­til­la­tions; 3. Serv­ing a bot­tle of sparkling wine in front of a panel; 4. De­cant­ing a bot­tle of red wine with a snappy ques­tion.

The win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion will be based on can­di­date’s to­tal marks and will spend four days at the Château Mag­nol, the hearÙ of Bar­ton & Guestier. The lucky win­ner will also have the chance to travel and meet the most fa­mous wine re­gion of France and the world, Bordeaux. For in­for­ma­tion con­tact Pho­tos Pho­ti­ades Dis­trib­u­tors on 22-471111 and the Cyprus Som­me­liers As­so­ci­a­tion on 99886363 / 99471567.
