Pernod Ricard has celebrated the release of two of its premium wines (Jacob's Creek and Campo Viejo) in Ghana with an exclusive private tasting event at the Plot 7 Night Club.
The ultra-exclusive tasting session was attended by business executives, media mavens and influencers including Nathaniel Attoh, ace Ghanaian radio and TV personality, Pablo Machulin, Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce, Nkechi Akuniyi, Regional Treasurer at United Bank for Africa and Viola Larbi, Operations Manager of Versace Ghana.
During the evening, guests were among the first in Ghana to sample Jacob's Creek Chardonnay and Campo Viejo Tempranillo, which were introduced by Cyran Wojciech, Brand Ambassador for Pernod Ricard Winemakers.
The Classic Jacob's Creek Chardonnay is made soft and fresh with creamy peaches, fresh melon and a tasty oak finish and contains a 13.1 % (ACL). Jacob's Creek has been one of the leading wineries in Australia's Barossa Valley with an aromatic and slightly bubbly with ripe grapes, lychee, tropical fruit, floral and citrus aromas.
The rich and fruity Spanish Rioja wine, Campo Viejo Tempranillo with a 13.5 % (ACL) is made with intense rich flavours of ripe red cherries and strawberries, followed by sweet vanilla and spice and can be enjoyed with pasta, poultry and fresh light cheeses, grilled chicken and small bites (light cheese, grilled vegetables).
“Pernod Ricard is excited to introduce and showcase these premium wines in Ghana with a private group of wine enthusiasts to experience selections from our wine portfolio which feature high-quality wines that are setting the benchmark for innovation in the winemaking world. Wine is mostly enjoyed with friends and family and it’s the moment that makes connecting over a quiet meal with friends or a joyous event an unforgettable one,’’ says Cyran Wojciech, Brand Ambassador for Pernod Ricard Winemakers.
The bespoke tasting session evoked a deeper passion for Jacob’s Creek and Campo Viejo wines inspiring guests to step outside what they thought about food and wine, taking them to a whole new level of appreciation for wine and the Pernod Ricard Winemaker portfolio.
