In Intermark, it really makes it mark as one of a tourist hang out spot as its filled with great dining area, Grocery center, and bar/pub. NOt only that, as there are hotels and offices area. Despite on this, I have attended one of a very unique event or must say cleverly done to increase your knowledge.

 This is my first time here at Beast with a great dining concept and surely the ambiance its a great place to hang out and chill.

AS you walk into their main entrance , towards the right side is their cool dining area and on the left side you will walk into this little small walk way that filled with a huge wine rack which is turning out to be more like a private space that is available to cater for private function with a secret door to be close upon request.

As a beginner in wine tasting, I am truely amaze how Moet Hennessy’s Wine Division came out with this idea to educate wine lovers more in dept about their wine range by having a Wine Casino.

Its a monthly event that presents a twist to the wine tasting format with a new monthly Wine “Casino” at GUEST, a private dining venue from the B.I.G Group at The Intermark, from 26th December 2013 through to 28th November 2014. On the last Thursday of every month, prepare to get your “bets” on as guests will be taken through four levels of blind tasting with a qualified sommelier who will act as a “croupier” for the night.

This would really be an interesting game to test on your wine knowledge on the character, taste and country ..

For RM150++ guests can participate in this blind tasting that will test both knowledge and sense. RM80 in “Vine Chips” will be distributed to each participant, who will then be required at each level to decide on

* The Variety – For example: Sauvignon or Chardonnay,

* The Origin – For example: New Zealand or Australia,

* Taste & Scent – Describing the wine bouq

* The Brand – Guessing the wine label

On that night, we tested most of their range from Cloudy Bay (New Zealand), Terrazas de los Andes (Argentina), Cape Mentelle and Chandon (Australia) and a few other more.

It was an exciting night, as most of the people in the room sure do know their wine very well till the banker is out of chips and have to replace with temporary card as a mark for a value. My Chips is certainly not enough to bid for anything but surely its a fun night. .

This is what happen why every one is so carefull on their bet as to bid for their favourite item to bring back. .
