Indonesia’s “Best Sommelier” Award Conferred upon Sheraton Bali Kuta Resorts Sommelier

Pamor Budi Kurniawan of Bene Italian Kitchen wins coveted title

Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is pleased to announce that Bene Italian Kitchen’s manager and sommelier, Pamor Budi Kurniawan, has won the top award in the annual Indonesian Sommelier Association Competition. This prestigious recognition further boosts Bene Italian Kitchen’s growing reputation as the go-to destination restaurant in Bali for authentic Italian cuisine.  

“What a wonderful honor for Pamor Budi and Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort,” said Dario Orsini, General Manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort. “We are proud of Pamor Budi’s accomplishments and, in turn, are delighted to offer guests, visitors and locals alike the best wine and best cuisine at Bene Italian Kitchen.”  

Set against the backdrop of the Indian Ocean with views of the Kuta Beach skyline, Bene Italian Kitchen is a contemporary trattoria with a comfortable and inviting ambience. Whether dining in a group with family or friends, or enjoying a romantic dinner for two, Bene offers three different experiences: including al fresco by the pool; shared family-style on the second level; or on the spectacular rooftop terrace with ocean views. 

Bene has just launched a new menu featuring Top 100 Pastas – 100 different handmade pasta dishes inspired by authentic heritage Italian recipes from just IDR 100K.   

As sommelier at Bene Italian Kitchen, Pamor Budi carefully curates and manages an extensive international wine collection and makes wine and food pairing recommendations for guests. He particularly enjoys expanding and enhancing the collection of Italian wines at Bene – now at 100 different selections to choose from.  

“I became a sommelier because I love sharing my knowledge of wine with our guests and my fellow associates,” said Pamor Budi. “I truly enjoy helping people discover something new and opening the door to new experiences. I enjoy teaching people how they can create perfect pairing of wine with different types of cuisine.”  

Pamor Budi’s favorite Italian wines are Guado Al Tasso from Antinori and Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia from Tuscany, and Luce from Frescobaldi. He also enjoys making fresh Red Sangria at Bene, using Italian red wine – preferably made with Sangiovese grapes from Tuscany – mixed with Italian herbs and cherry tomatoes.   

The 5th annual Indonesian National Sommelier Competition was held in Jakarta at the Jakarta Wine and Cheese Festival with 32 of the country’s top sommeliers competing for the prestigious prize. The sommeliers were put through a rigorous process which included a written test, tasting and service scenarios. Pamor Budi will represent Indonesia at the 2014 South East Asian Sommelier Competition in November in Bangkok.
