An attractive Somló-Indonesian pairing

100,000 Private customers across 120 countries. 12 000 wines listed, 2.5 million bottles stored in the cellars of Millésima. A few figures about the company that has been organizing its blog awards since 2013 in five categories, for which the best wine blogs apply from all over the world. The article about us "Incredible partners: Somló wine and Indonesian stew" got into the final in the "Food & Wine Pairing" category. Written by Charine Tan, posted on the Exotic Wine Travel blog that she makes with her partner, Matthew Horkey. The couple left Singapore and their career in 2015 to travel around the world, get to know lesser-known wine regions, taste their wines and write about their experiences: articles, books, blog posts. They have visited more than 100 wine regions in more than 20 countries, so they came to Somló as well.

The article is about how this unique food and wine pairing was born: how the couple got to Somló, what wine they tasted, how Charine chose the 2016 Tornai Premium Pinot Gris, how she remembered her grandmother’s ayam semur, one of her favorite dishes when she was a child, how she made it many thousand kilometers away from her homeland – and about the experience of having this food together with our wine. The post that besides our wine presents Somló from their specific perspective is available here, and you can find out more about the details and finalists of the blog competition here. The jury is now working, results will be announced on February 1.
