Napa Wine Bar and Kitchen

Sep 11, 2010 1 Comment by

First, we would like to thank Philippe Huser for inviting us to an unforgettable wine tasting. We had the chance to attend the first “wine sign” experience available in Shanghai. After tasting 6 different wines and grading them from 1 for “I love this wine tremendously” to 5 “Not for me, thanks” and answering questions about our lifestyle we received our personal “wine sign” leaflet. This will undoubtedly help us in the future to pick wines that fit our profile.  I can’t reveal wines we tasted as these are the same wines you will taste if you happen to attend this wonderful experience. But trust me there are good onesJ. So our wine signs happen to be “Strong” for Lucas ascendant “Sensual”. And “Sensual” ascendant “Adventurous” for me. Being of a sensual profile means that “you flit from the quest for perfection to picking and choosing”. This is me ! What I can say is that no one seemed disappointed by his/her profile. On the contrary, most of the journalists here (yes it was a private media opening sorry guys ;)) said that their profiles described them very well.

Actually, I wanted to write an article about Napa for a long time. And this wine tasting gives me the opportunity now to write about this very high end wine bar and restaurant in the very center of Shanghai.  Located in a century old historical Tudor house (refurbished by famous New York based interior designer Kathryn Scott), Napa Wine Bar and Kitchen has one of the most extensive wine list in Mainland China. This place being shared with ASC Fine Wines, the 1st wines importer in China, dedication to wine is present all over the place. A must whether you are looking for a nice wine bar or for a very good restaurant with an exceptional wine list.

As Philippe Huser said after this wine tasting, drinking a wine is one thing, pairing wine and food is another. That is why they offer everyday of the week a “fine wining experience”:

Mondays: 100% Napa – Napa’s Special dish paired with Napa Valley Wines

Tuesdays: Free flow wining – Free flow of 6 different wines. RMB 180

Wednesdays: Beef & Bordeaux – Share a juicy cote de boeuf and pair it with a red Bordeaux wine

Drink well !
