From Cali to Bali

Following a successful debut, Karma Kandara’s curated wine and food event, Caliwine-ication, returns this August!

Following a sold-out debut season, Karma Kandara’s di Mare Restaurant will be welcoming back the wine-focused Caliwine-ication this August. The gastronomic extravaganza will see the luxury Uluwatu resort’s Executive Chef Joseph Antonishek curate a five-course California-inspired food and wine pairing.

This time around, the wine will be presented by the celebrated Napa Valley’s Stags’ Leap winery and paired with an unforgettable menu courtesy of Chef Joseph.

Post-amuse bouche and Californian canapé hour, guests will dine on a series of indulgent courses, like the signature bisque of salted fish, Spanish chorizo, tomato, fennel, rouille, aged manchego, and Espelette crouton, paired with a Stags’ Leap 2017 Chardonnay. Followed with a lamb rack and shoulder, served with zucchini yoghurt slaw, braising jus and a Stags’ Leap 2017 Petit Sirah, Napa Valley. To finish, there will be pineapple upside-down cake, with green cardamom-spiced coconut creme fraiche gelato, and pink peppercorn caramel sauce served with a celebratory cocktail The Pomelo Anderson-made from Mezcal, freshly squeezed pomelo juice, agave, basil, and with a volcano chilli salt rim.

“The actual five-course dinner is an expression of California cuisine using a backyard rustic California approach heightened in a fine dining degustation-style menu, carefully paired with each grape varietal featured from Stags’ Leap. It’s a very well-known vineyard out of Napa Valley with beautiful expressions of the various grape varietals in which California is known for growing. Stags’ Leap is a great introduction to fine California wines,” explains Chef Joseph.

Caliwine-ication will take place on the evening of Saturday, 6 August 2022. The magical dinner is priced at IDR1,600,000++ per person, with an early bird special available for a group of four people.
