Aji Tapas Bar and Restaurant celebrates Grand Re-opening with World Class Champagne
Wednesday, May 21st, 2014
When it comes to an evening of elegance, fine food and wines- Aji Tapas is an excellent choice. Located in northern Ambergris Caye, Aji Tapas provides guests with appetizing cuisine and a fine assortment of beverages, including the latest edition of fine wines and the world class champagne “Armand de Brignac,” presented at the grand re-opening of the establishment on Thursday May 15th.
Aji’s new owners Tony and Linda, along with representatives of Karl H Menzies, and Joseph Toenjes, International Sales representative of St. Amand New World Wines welcomed invited guests to enjoy a fabulous evening of food and wine. Guests enjoyed fruit and cheese platters, Aji’s delicious bacon-wrapped dates and of course, wine!
The moonlit evening included several tastings of fruity white and rich-oaky red wines from the King Estate winery of Oregon, USA and The Pendroncelli winery of Sonoma, California USA. These selections delighted guests with their rich flavors, but the highly anticipated star of the night was the champagne making headlines worldwide: “Armand de Brignac.” Popularly known as “Ace of Spades,” it is both produced and bottled by the Cattier family in Chigny les Roses, a village in Champagne, France.
The champagne was presented in its three cuvees: Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, Armand de Brignac Rosé and Armand de Brignac Blanc de Blancs which can be purchased at a starting price of $800 a bottle, we were certainly appreciative of the flutes being passed around!
Kay Menzies, managing director at Karl H Menzies congratulated new owners Tony and Linda on their new business venture and their partnership with the new wines and luxurious champagne!
