Sotheby’s Hong Kong Presents: Finest & Rarest Wines

11:00am, 23 May 2015 | Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery

Sotheby’s is delighted to present the sale of Finest & Rarest Wines: Featuring Burgundy Direct from Maison Camille Giroud on Saturday, 23 May 2015 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery. Major highlights include the first winery-direct offering in Asia from Maison Camille Giroud, rare and collectible whiskies including bottle #1 of ‘The Last Drop’ 50 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky, and first-class wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône Valley. A total of 421 lots estimated at HK$10 – 14 million/US$1.3 – 1.8 million will go under the hammer.

Burgundy Direct from Maison Camille Giroud – The 150-year-old Winery’s First Winery-Direct Offering in Asia
A total of 66 lots of red and white Burgundies direct from Camille Giroud, spanning close to 40 vintages from 1976 to 2012 will be offered. Highlights include the very rare Musigny 1976 and top vintages of Corton Charlemagne, Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin, Chassagne Montrachet “les Vergers”, Corton “Le Rognet”, Volnay “les Lurets” and Gevrey Chambertin “Lavaux St. Jacques”.

Commenting on this ex-cellar Burgundy collection, Robert Sleigh, Head of Sotheby’s Wine, Asia, says, “Established in 1865, Camille Giroud was always a wonderful source for mature Burgundies, having built its reputation on producing long-lived wines that were not released until the owners deemed them ready to drink.”

“With a change of ownership in 2001, together with the hiring of the very talented David Croix as winemaker, Camille Giroud has built on this legacy while keeping true to its origins. Modern vineyard methods combined with old vines and traditional winemaking techniques have established Maison Camille Giroud as part of Burgundy’s past, present and future.”

The First Bottle of ‘The Last Drop’ 50 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
Bottle #1 of ‘The Last Drop’ 50 Year Old (of only 388 bottles ever produced) is donated by Crown Wine Cellars as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Crown Worldwide Group. Proceeds from the sale of the bottle will benefit Hong Kong-based charity Sunshine Action, which is dedicated to helping those suffering from poverty, hardship and sickness.

‘The Last Drop’ 50 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky is composed of 82 different whiskies – 70 malts and 12 grains – many from distilleries that no longer exist. In 1972, the majority was bottled and sold as a premium 12-year-old; however, three barrels were overlooked in the warehouse until being discovered in 2008. By then, most of the whisky had evaporated, leaving only enough to produce a total of 388 bottles. ‘The Last Drop’ 50 Year Old was named Blended Scotch Whisky of the Year in 2014 by The Whisky Advocate Awards. The bottle is estimated at HK$50,000 – 100,000/US$6,500 – 13,000.

  • Langkawi Elevates its Profile as a World-Class Luxury Destination, with Langkawi International Convention Centre (LICC) as a Landmark of its New Integrated Coastal Development
  • Rendering of The St. Regis Langkawi


On the heels of the ASEAN Leaders Summit, The St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT), exclusively previewed The St. Regis Langkawi, welcoming dignitaries from the Summit. Owned by Integrated Nautical Resort Sdn Bhd (INR), the resort is a joint-venture between Rajawali Group, Malaysia Ministry of Finance and Langkawi Development Authority. Following the private hosting of the ASEAN Leaders Summit dignitaries, The St. Regis Langkawi will be officially open to the public in November 2015.

“I am delighted to host ASEAN leaders at The St. Regis Langkawi, to present first-hand the tremendous potential of our islands,” said Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia. “The St. Regis Langkawi and Integrated Nautical Resorts, as anchor investments, will greatly elevate Malaysia’s luxury hospitality landscape, bringing it on par with the likes of Monaco and Bali. And with the integration of the ASEAN Economic Community later this year, as well as Malaysia’s position as the ASEAN Chair in 2015, we are committed to transforming Langkawi into a world-class nautical tourism destination, showcasing the depth of Malaysian hospitality.”

Unveiling Langkawi’s Exclusive Address: The St. Regis Langkawi
Scheduled to open its doors in November 2015, The St. Regis Langkawi is situated within an idyllic cove in close proximity to Kuah town, Langkawi’s shopping and commercial centre, and is approximately a 20-minute drive from Langkawi International Airport. The resort will include 85 well-appointed suites and 3 water villas, each boasting a spectacular view of the Straits of Malacca. Each guestroom will also feature the signature St. Regis Butler Service. Trained in the English tradition, St. Regis butlers provide discerning guests with around-the-clock customized services, anticipating each guest’s every need.

“St. Regis is a game-changer to Langkawi’s luxury tourism offerings,” said Stephen Ho, President, Asia Pacific, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “Its rich heritage, refined sophistication and bespoke services, coupled with Starwood’s strong membership loyalty program Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG®) , will enhance Langkawi’s efforts to become an international nautical holiday destination and gathering place of affluent global travellers.”

“Langkawi is emerging as a world-class luxury destination,” added Tan Sri Peter Sondakh, Chairman of Rajawali Group. “It is among the world’s best islands, and we feel that it’s a great opportunity to introduce the St. Regis brand and its uncompromising services, offering bespoke service to worldly, well-heeled travellers.”

Dato Dr. Isa, Chairman of INR, also lauded the development of The St. Regis Langkawi as an excellent platform to bolster the Langkawi Blueprint strategy, to strengthen the luxury travel segment in the islands, as well as to enhance the vibrancy of the country’s north-western coast.

A myriad of culinary experiences, with five food and beverage venues, will keep up with the rich heritage and legacy of the St. Regis brand. The resort’s signature bar will serve the legendary Bloody Mary cocktail, born at the flagship St. Regis New York hotel in the early 1900s. The resort will also create a local version of the Bloody Mary, a tradition that every St. Regis around the world cherishes.

Guests at The St. Regis Langkawi will also be able to indulge in a range of luxurious specialty massages and well-being treatments, crafted to pamper and allure their weary senses in a tranquil and private Spa Salon. Other resort amenities will include a swimming pool, gym and function space, with access to expanded meeting facilities at the ultra-modern Langkawi International Convention Centre (LICC).

Upon its full completion later this year, The St. Regis Langkawi will join a growing portfolio of over 30 distinguished St. Regis hotels around the world. The resort will also further strengthen Starwood’s footprint on the island, where the company currently operates four properties under Sheraton, Westin, The Luxury Collection and Four Points by Sheraton brands. Starwood continues its aggressive expansion in Malaysia, and is on track to add eight more hotels in the next four years, including The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur and W Kuala Lumpur.

Enjoy Every Single Day Sheraton @ Bali Kuta Resort

Bali’s Authentic Italian Restaurant with an Award-winning Wine Program Introduces Exceptional Monday-through Sunday Dining Experiences for Guests


Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort, the luxurious resort located in the heart of the famed Kuta Beach, is pleased to launch its Enjoy Every Single Day experiences at the property’s acclaimed Bene Italian Kitchen. Each day of the week – Monday through Sunday – Bene guests will delight in unique specials that spotlight the restaurant’s best culinary, wine, and cocktail offerings at appetizing savings.  Enjoy Every Single Day at Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is available now through June 30, 2015.

Enjoy Every Single Day at this resort in Kuta (sheratonbalikuta.com/) provides guests a variety of ways and reasons to enjoy Bene.  For example, No Phone Fridays encourages guests to enjoy their meal without the distraction of electronic devices.  This is an ideal offering given Bene’s award-winning wine list, plus the important role of wine – rather than, say, a cell phone – in relaxation.  This was demonstrated in the results of a recent Sheraton Hotels & Resorts survey in which, after a long day, one out of every two people said they would reach for a glass of wine (48%) rather than their smart phone or tablet (15%). 

Situated on Sheraton Bali Kuta Resorts second level, Bene features a stunning view of the Indian Ocean, creating a breathtaking ambience for guests.  Bene, under the direction of Executive Chef Rossano Renzelli, offers authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist presenting a wide range of signature dishes by fusing imported and locally fresh ingredients with a family-sharing food concept. 
“Bene has a convivial atmosphere, but we are serious about delivering authentically Italian dishes that highlight the very best flavors and ingredients available,” said Chef Renzelli. 

Bene recently won an “Award of Excellence” for its exceptional wine list from Wine Spectator, a highly-regarded industry publication.  Guests can enjoy Bene’s wine selections and cocktails throughout the week with Enjoy Every Single Day offerings that spotlight Bene’s wood-fired pizza, 100Pasta, and other flavorful selections.  Guests will also find savings and comfort – whether dining with companions, on their own, or even while free of their electronic devices.  Enjoy Every Single Day specials include:
  • Pan & Pot Mondays – Guests can skip cooking at home, but still start the week family style with dish selections to share, and the Bene team will prepare and serve them in pans and pots.  Pan & Pot Mondays menu items are available from 5 p.m. for IDR 200.00++ per person.
  • Bring Your Own Tuesdays – This is the day of the week when dining guests can bring their own wine or spirits and forego Bene’s corkage fee, starting at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays.
  • Chef’s Choice 100Pasta Wednesdays, Buy 1 Get 1 Free 100Pasta – Guests receive one 100Pasta dish, and get another at no charge when they allow Bene chefs to select their favorite 100Pasta dishes for them.  This offer celebrating the chef’s top past picks is available to guests on Wednesdays starting at 11 a.m.
  • Pay as You Like Thursdays – It’s up to guests to pay however much they think their 100Pasta dishes are worth when they experience Bene on Thursdays starting at 11 a.m.
  • No Phone Fridays – Bene encourages device-free dining and real-time conversation by inviting guests to turn in their smart phones, tablets and other electronics to the hostess upon arrival.  If they do, they will receive a 50% food discount upon settling the bill.  Savings on No Phone Fridays start at 5 p.m.
  • Singles Saturdays – Another way to pay half price for the Bene experience is for guests to dine by themselves at the restaurant’s indoor or al fresco communal table.  Bene will not only take 50% off the food bill, but the social dining atmosphere will provide an opportunity for guests to get to know each other!
  • Sundays Market Brunch – Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is a terrific place to enjoy the ultimate lazy afternoon.  Guests can shop for groceries at the Feast Market Brunch, and then let Bene’s culinary team create a special dinner while they relax by the pool and take in the sunset.  Sundays Market Brunch is available from 2 p.m. at Bene.

Bene’s contemporary and open-air setting is ideal for a holiday celebration, special occasion, romantic dinner for two, or group event.  Bene is open for dinner from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily.

Urban Transportation


Transportasi umum selalu menjadi persoalan di kota-kota besar, apalagi Jakarta yang infrastrukturya belum terbentuk. Untunglah di era digital ini, hambatan tersebut sedikit teratasi. Paling tidak, ada pengusaha transportasi yang memanfaatkan kemacetan kota dengan menawarkan kemudahan pemesanan jasa taksi dan ojek  lewat aplikasi di ponsel.

Setelah Go-Jek dan GrabTaxi, muncul Uber, brand yang sudah ada sejak 2009 di San Francisco. Jika Anda memesan via Uber, yang menjemput bukanlah taksi atau ojek, tapi mobil pribadi sejenis Avanza, Xenia, Innova, bahkan Alphard. Konsumen tentunya makin diuntungkan, mereka saling bersaing dengan menawarkan promo menarik, salah satunya potongan harga. Saking fantastisnya, sampai-sampai ada penumpang yang dikenai tarif nol rupiah alias gratis!

Bukan Perusahaan Transportasi
Pada awalnya awam mengira basis ketiga apps tersebut (Go-Jek, GrabTaxi, dan Uber) adalah perusahaan transportasi, seperti Blue Bird dan Express, yang sebelumnya sudah meluncurkan aplikasi pemesanan taksi sendiri. Sebenarnya yang ditawarkan perusahaan itu bukanlah alat transportasinya.

Nadiem Makarim, founder Go-Jek, menekankan soal kesalahan persepsi tersebut. Dikatakannya, “Kami bukan perusahaan transportasi. Kami perusahaan teknologi yang ingin memudahkan kehidupan orang di perkotaan, dengan menciptakan aplikasi semacam ini.”

Go-Jek, startup lokal yang 100 persen asli produk Indonesia, merupakan layanan yang bergerak di bidang transportasi dan kurir yang berbasis sistem teknologi. Pengguna cukup mengunduh aplikasinya di smartphone, lalu mengikuti petunjuk cara memesan ojek. Layanan ini menggandeng tukang ojek bergabung sebagai mitra bisnisnya.


Begitu pun Uber, sejatinya adalah perusahaan teknologi yang menghubungkan penumpang dengan pengemudi untuk mendapatkan transportasi yang aman dan nyaman. Uber di Jakarta bermitra dengan perusahaan layanan jasa rental mobil.

Di Australia dan Amerika, pengemudi profesional dengan mobil yang berizin komersial dapat mendaftar menjadi sopir Uber tanpa harus bernaung di bawah perusahaan rental. Hingga saat ini, Uber telah tersebar di lebih dari 300 kota di 55 negara di seluruh dunia.

Begitu pula dengan GrabTaxi, yang bermula sebagai MyTeksi di Malaysia pada Juli 2011, dan resmi diluncurkan pada 5 Juni 2012. Anthony Tan dan Hooi Ling Tan, pendiri GrabTaxi, adalah alumnus Harvard Business School yang tergerak menciptakan aplikasi ini setelah mendengar cerita dari teman dan saudara mereka mengenai betapa mengerikannya taksi di Kuala Lumpur. Banyak taksi yang tidak mau menyalakan argometer, ada negosiasi tarif dengan penumpang, dan rute pun diputar-putar.

“Karena itulah mereka membuat aplikasi mengenai transportasi di smartphone yang diikutkan dalam kompetisi di Harvard dan berhasil menjadi juara kedua. Hadiah uang dalam kompetisi itu kemudian dijadikan modal dasar pengembangan aplikasi tersebut,” kata Kiki Rizki, Head of Marketing GrabTaxi, kepada MALE.

Negara-negara di Asia Tenggara menjadi konsentrasi ekspansi GrabTaxi saat ini, dan akhirnya Juni 2014 merambah Indonesia sebagai negara keenam setelah beroperasi di Malaysia, Singapura, Filipina, Thailand, serta Vietnam. Saat ini GrabTaxi sudah ada di 20 kota dan enam negara. Di Indonesia, ada di Jabodetabek, Padang, dan Surabaya.

Secara perlahan, di wilayah urban terjadi pergeseran cara menggunakan moda transportasi umum. Dulu penumpang cukup melambaikan tangan untuk menghentikan taksi atau ojek. Kini gaya hidup serba sentuh membuat segalanya menjadi mudah.

The Bali Sunset Experience


Bali is renowned for its legendary sunsets, and in the late afternoons a daily ritual takes place as hundreds of residents and visitors make their way to the beaches on the west coast to farewell the sun as it sets behind the horizon. While enjoying a cocktail or an icy cold beer, many people are hoping to see the much-coveted green flash – a fleeting spot of intense green light an instant after sunset, caused by light refracting in the atmosphere. This is best seen when the sun sets over the ocean, when it is absolutely clear all the way to the horizon, but be warned it will be gone in the blink of an eye, so don’t blink!

At the end of the day, however, this isn’t the only sunset phenomenon in Bali. Visitors also flock to Pura Tanah Lot, one of the island’s most dramatic and venerated sea temples, dedicated to the sea spirits and founded by Nirartha, one of the last Majapahit priests to come from Java in the 16th century. The temple is perched on a craggy wave-lashed rock just at the edge of the frothing white surf and glistening black shoreline, and is probably the most photographed sight in Bali. It can only be reached at low tide and the surrounding rocks are rumoured to be inhabited by sea snakes. The best, albeit the most crowded, time to visit is in the late afternoon when you can see the splendid profile of the temple silhouetted against the setting sun.

Likewise, Pura Luhur Uluwatu, on the southwest tip of the Bukit Peninsula cannot be missed. This 11th century temple is balanced on the very edge of a narrow rocky cape, overhanging perpendicular cliffs 70 metres above the crashing breakers of the Indian Ocean. Its grey volcanic stone, glowing with the radiant colours of the setting sun, will leave you with a lasting and haunting memory of spiritual Bali. While here, you may also wish to watch the famous Kecak Dance, which is performed daily at 6pm. If you get a good seat at the back of the amphitheatre, you will also get a view of the sunset.

There are numerous rustic beach bars and rooftop bars as well as stylish upmarket beachside venues all along Bali’s west coast from Tabanan to Canggu to Seminyak to Kuta to Jimbaran to Uluwatu, but one of the finest places to catch the sunset is Sunset Beach Bar & Grill at InterContinental  Bali Resort. This casual, alfresco beachfront bar offers a refreshingly unpretentious, ‘toes-in-sand’ informality, fanned by ocean breezes and with the best front-row seats to unparalleled 180-degree sunset views across Jimbaran Bay. With its top-notch service,  Sunset Beach Bar & Grill provides a variety of open-air seating arrangements: sit-up bar stools at the thatched-roof central bar and serving station, or scattered across the sand bank, a series of beach-facing tables and chairs, bean bags and private cabanas – all shaded by mature trees.  An extensive bar menu covers global beer brands, boutique wines, spirits, non-alcoholic beverages and healthy juices, but the signature here is a vast selection of innovative sundowners and cocktails. These include a full range of Mojitos, Daiquiris, Martinis and Margaritas, as well as Sunset Pitchers of Sangria or Pimm’s – great for sharing with friends along with some light snacks such as Sunset Beach Bar & Grill’s contemporary seafood bites and Mediterranean favourites.  And who knows, while watching the sunset, you might even get to see the elusive green flash!

About InterContinental Bali Resort. Blessed by an endless stretch of white sand beach overlooking the tranquil waters of Jimbaran Bay, InterContinental Bali Resort features 417 guest rooms in three unique levels of accommodation. The property embraces a 14 hectares tropical landscape that is a blend of indigenous flora, gentle waterways and stone statues reflecting the island’s artistic heritage.
