Pune: Flowing wines, soul inspiring food and camaraderie; Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar played the perfect host to city dignitaries with an exclusive wine appreciation dinner recently. The evening was organised to commemorate Pune’s first Indonesian Food Festival, ‘from Bali to Baan Tao’, at the award winning Pan-Asian restaurant, Baan Tao. The event was graced by Mr. Dalton Sembiring – Minister & Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia along with Mr. Alessio Secci, Director of Fratelli Wines and Sumit Kumar, General Manager of Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar. Also present at the occasion, were many dignitaries including editors of leading media houses and high profile corporate honchos of Pune.
While addressing the guests at the dinner, Dalton Sembiring shared some interesting facts about Indonesia, their native food – also considered one of the healthiest in the world – and the rich cultural history between Indonesia and India which makes for a natural bond between the two nations. He also spoke highly of the hospitality of Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar and how – in a span of less than 24 hours – the warm and welcoming staff of the hotel made him feel at home. “It was a pleasure to be a part of such a great gathering, and to see the two countries coming together spreading the word of harmony and solidarity. I would love to come back to see more of such unions in future,” said Sembiring.
“We feel extremely proud and greatly honored that Mr Sembiring took out time from his busy schedule to grace our event. His humility and incredible enthusiasm has inspired us and will keep inspiring us forever,” said Sumit Kumar.
In its endeavour to celebrate and promote the uniqueness of Indonesian food and culture, Hyatt Pune, Kalyani Nagar gave the guests an opportunity to explore the delicacies through an exquisite 4-course treat which was delicately paired with premium wines from the house of Fratelli, and matched everyone’s palate perfectly.
