Celebrity chef Jacobo Astray, who served up unique culinary experiences at elBulli — the famed Michelin three-star restaurant in Catalonia, Spain, helmed by chef Ferran Adria — will be cooking up a storm in Genting Highlands today.

At this wine pairing event at La Fiesta, Resorts World Genting (RWG) will also be celebrating the launch of its new house wines Hermanos Lurton Resorts World Genting Tempranillo, Toro DO and Hermanos Lurton Resorts World Genting Verdejo, Rueda DO.

The wines are from the south of Castile and León in Spain where Hermanos Lurton’s vineyards are located in two appellations: Rueda DO for white wines and Toro DO for red wines. Hermanos Lurton Resorts World Genting Tempranillo grapes have been carefully selected for optimum freshness.

The wines that will be presented at the launch are Hermanos Lurton Resorts World Genting Verdejo 2017, Resorts World Genting Tempranillo 2016, Toro DO and Les Fumee Blanches Sparkling Cocktails by Gin of Lurton (Sorgin).

At La Fiesta, a traditional Spanish-style eatery with an open kitchen, guests can look forward to the evening’s exquisite wine pairing five-course menu with canapés prepared by chef Jacobo.
