A slice of Argentina coming to Phuket

Posted on August 5, 2013


A slice of Argentina coming to PhuketBoathouse on Kata Beach, Phuket’s most elegant and innovative boutique resort and restaurant, is proud to present a unique event featuring some of Argentina’s most famed attributes: Tango, wine and Asado style meats.

Argentina’s history is a fusion of numerous cultures, which has contributed to the enormous diversity of its arts, with dance, wine and cuisine all central to the Argentinian people.

Wine was brought into the country by the Spanish in the 16th century. Malbec, the red wine on which the well-deserved reputation of the Argentinian wine industry hangs its hat, will be featured prominently throughout the night. Towards the end of the 1800’s Tango, born from European and African cultures’ influences and said to be the most sensual dance in the world, began to take shape in the immigrant populations throughout Argentina and is now a cultural icon renowned internationally.

On the evening of August 9th, Boathouse Wine & Grill will bring together these distinct characters of Argentinian Culture. Argentinian Tango couple, Julieta Biscione and Roberto Castillo, currently touring Asia and performing in the region’s most famed hotels and venues will be flying to Phuket to perform at Boathouse Wine & Grill. A four-course Asado-style dinner alongside the wines from Mendoza, Argentina’s most famed wine region will be one of the many highlights of the evening. Wine director Georges Ciret together with Executive Chef Bryan Burger designed a menu after carefully studying the styles of each wine presented on that night.

Boathouse’s food & beverage director Santiago Lopez, who originates from Buenos Aires, has recently said: “It is a great honor to bring an event like this one to the sands of Kata beach.”

Fine wine, professional Tango dancing and the Boathouse kitchen team will make this evening one of the must-do events on the Phuket calendar.

Date: Friday August 9th, 2013

Time: Cocktail at 7pm, followed by dinner.

Price: 2,200++ baht per person inclusive of sparkling wine reception, 4-course dinner with wine pairings and the tango show.
