Those who dug deep for the US$150 per person in the name of ‘We Care’ for Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH) are calling the Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ)/Round Hill Hotel Wine Dinner, ‘The Round Hill Experience’.
Organised by Montego Bay businessman Mark Hart and one of the island’s most discerning wine connoisseurs, India Crotty, the two combined their love of the crème de la crème of wines with Round Hill’s award-winning executive chef Martin Maginley.
The combination was magical!
Chef Maginley and his culinary wizards created an extraordinary fare using organic plants grown in the hotel’s gardens. These came to life with CPJ’s vast collection of wines.
Currently the largest distributors of wines in the country, CPJ drew for Chateau St Jean Fume Blanc, Beringer Napa Valley Private Reserve Chardonnay, Souverain Alexander Merlot, and Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon for the event.
And Chef Maginley took from his deck of food cards, organic baby greens, served with home-made ginger candy and sorrel sepals dressing. Paired with the light citrusy quintessential wine, Chateau St Jean Fume Blanc, this brought out three different elements in the meal.
