“ A ‘deVine’ Taste of South Africa! ”


On Saturday May 25th, the Royal Cliff Hotels Group’s deVine Club held a South African Wine Tasting for all club members and wine lovers. The Head of State Chamber in the Grand Hotel was transformed into a romantic African savannah complete with authentic music and animal props.

This sensational evening presented deVine members with the diversity of South Africa’s rich culture and flavours with Nederburg, Two Oceans, and J.C. Le Roux Wines. In classic Royal Cliff wine tasting style, the featured wines were located in themed- booths around the Head of State Chamber. Guests enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and variety of wines served. In addition to the fine wines, the culinary team provided a hearty selection of delicious canapés.

Mr. Morgan Morel, the young and enthusiast Brand Manager for Wine IWS Thailand was the guest speaker for the evening. His extensive background in the hospitality industry, has given Morgan Morel the insight to appreciate fine wines. Morgan refined his knowledge of old world and new world wines by working with IWS Thailand.

deVine Wine Club was launched on 28th April 2001 as the visible face of the resort’s enthusiasm for promoting wines and hosting wine-related events. It has enjoyed tremendous success from its very first function. Today, membership has grown substantially and we are now Asia’s leading wine club. Our gala dinners are always very popular, offering an exquisite seven-course meal. At each event the resort invites renowned international wine experts to introduce and offer their wines for tastings.

Our award-winning wine cellar houses Thailand’s most formidable selection of wines, boasting more than 36,000 carefully selected bottles in its inventory, including over 1,000 of the world’s best new- and old-world wine labels and 15 varieties of the resort’s own label selection. The wines in this selection hail from some of the world’s best wine producing regions and are exclusively made and bottled for the Royal Cliff Hotels Group.
