We pride ourselves on having the very best sommeliers in their fields – and we like to ensure they stay up to date with their expertise.

Our sommeliers often have the opportunity to meet the owners of internationally recognised wine estates and understand their philosophy and their product line – and we’re very excited about the latest visit.

Following the first edition of the Art de Vignes promotion held in March 2010 in the Seychelles, we are pleased to announce that this exceptional wine growers’ club will organise a gastronomic week at two of Constance Hotels Experience’s establishments in the Maldives:

‘Art de Vignes’ is a club which gathers wine growers who associate themselves with the art of wine. It is an association of French wine-producing regions with a strong identity: Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Corsica, the Jura, the Loire, Rhone. Each vine grower of the club “Art de Vignes” registers his work in his wine-producing area of origin, by respecting his geographical, historical and cultural characteristics.

Jerome Faure, Head Sommelier of Constance Hotels Experience, intends to make this very unique event a regular fixture on our annual calendar.

The week in our Maldives resorts will run from 21st to 27th March 2011.
