Cyprus Dinner
Limassol, July 5, 2019
Mouth-watering journey of contemporary, gourmet dining
" members and guests were served Champagne R de Ruinart at the reception "

We held our seventh event of the year in the Grill Room Restaurant at the luxury 5-star Amathus Hotel, a proud member of the Leading Hotels of the World.

The Grill Room was launched in April 2014 and is now the hotel’s crown jewel in which outstanding food and superb service are of course assured.

Gathering for our dinner, members and guests were served Champagne R de Ruinart at the reception.

The “R” blend is made up of 40% Chardonnay, 49% Pinot Noir and 11% Pinot Meunier - all grapes being hand-picked. Chardonnay is the very soul of Ruinart. The grape, mainly harvested from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards is at the heart of all the company’s cuvées.

The original expression of the Ruinart taste, we always find that “R” is perfect for an aperitif with its persistent effervescence and rounded, full-bodied taste. The long finish highlights the characteristic freshness of Chardonnay.
