Location was definitely prime, Park Hyatt. The event aimed to push the Courvoisier Exclusif as a cocktail mixer to a younger market as the crowd reflected. Lively people that got louder and louder as the night went on and more alcohol consumed. General vibe was great and definitely met some interesting people at the event. The idea was to have a cocktail mixing context to display how the Exclusif can be versatile. Read about the tasting here at DF’s blog.

A wonderful event for wine tasting with Anita and her family and friends. We tasted Spanish and Portuguese wines, many of which were new to them. Everyone came with an open mind and ready to have fun with the wines. Fortunately, nobody was camera shy. I covered this event with a mindset of getting candid shots and the essence of the event without being intrusive. So I sniped away using mostly the 70-200/f2.8 to get closer without having to get in anyone’s face.
It can be intimidating not having gone to a wine tasting before and not knowing what to expect but I think everyone had a good time. For those that is new to wine, this is definitely a nice kick off. For those who already enjoy wine, it is great to discuss it with someone as passionate about it as DF.
