Ever notice how certain drinks are more suited to certain places and occasions than others? Beer is better at a ball game than a martini. Bloody Mary’s with brunch, great… Whiskey? Not so much.
(Yes, I make exceptions for rum, but then again, you probably already knew that.)
Special places like Estate Belvedere.
As we first told you earlier, Estate Belvedere is a truly uncommon villa-style property built in and around the stately ruins of an 18th century Danish sugar plantation tucked away on a lush hillside on St. Croix’s breezy North Shore. The whole place oozes a special charm and classic island style tailor-made for ushering in the evening with a Malbec.
That will go double
this Friday in mid-January when Estate Belvedere plays host to The Rattan Wine Walk to benefit St. Croix’s Rattan Montessori School. The soft music, candles, and haute fashion/cuisine will be on full display as attendees enjoy sampling a choice selection of some of the finest wines available in the Virgin Islands amid the magical Estate Belvedere ruins and gardens.
(There will be a rum bar as well, supporting my earlier exception.)
All the fun starts
this Friday, December 13th, at 6:30pm Friday, January 17, 2014 at 6:30pm (see above). Sadly, I won’t don’t have plans to be anywhere near St. Croix this that week, so yeah, I’m plenty envious. If you’re on-island, though, I couldn’t recommend this very special event more highly.
