Surprise Genesis Menu at The Reflexions Bangkok
F and B Manager Thomas Deledalle at The Reflexions
Lovers of good food and wine have been cottoning on to the regular monthly wine tasting evenings at The Reflexions. Located at Plaza Athenee Bangkok, a Royal Meridien Hotel, in Wireless Road, The Reflexions provides a carefully selected French menu to accompany each range of wines that is specially chosen for each occasion. August's affair was titled Wine and Dine Chile, and featured six Genesis wines from the De Aguirre family, widely regarded as producers of some of the best wines in Chile's Maule Valley.
