Taste Wine in the Caribbean with Sivory Punta Cana

- Melissa Mewdell,

It’s not often that you get to mix sand and wine, especially if you’re vacationing in the Caribbean. That’s what makes Sivory Punta Cana so special, in our books. With more than 8,000 bottles of wine from all over the world, you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of some of the world’s rarest vintages on your beach vacation.

If you’re a wine lover, vacations in the Caribbean can be a little tough. Known for their rum, the Caribbean islands are not so spot on when it comes to wine. But this is what makes Sivory Punta Cana so unique (and what makes it one of the best hotels in the Dominican Republic).

Sivory’s owner, Manel Vallet considers wine one of his own personal passions. And, because of his love for vino, he’s established a wine library of more than 8,000 bottles from 300 vintages (of all types: red, white, rose, sparkling and champagne).

Guests at the hotel will truly love this global wine selection, with some of the most interesting labels including:
o    Chateau Petrus, 1992
o    Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1998
o    Vega Sicilia Unico, 1989
o    Opus One Mondavi, 2001
o    Moet Chandon Mathusalem, 1998

Sivory Punta Cana Resort Wine TastingIn addition to having one of the most comprehensive wine collections in the Caribbean, Sivory Punta Cana offers wine tasting (upon request). If you love wine and want to learn how to distinguish between different varieties or understand a wine’s nuances, a wine tasting will definitely be up your alley.

Guests will be taking through the nuances between old world wines from Europe and newer varieties from California and South America.

The wine bar is located in “Gourmond”, the resort’s fine dining restaurant. You’ll be sure to find excellent food to go with your favourite wines here, as all of the meals are prepared with fresh local ingredients. Ask for some help if you need it when pairing a wine with your dinner.

This hotel is unique in many ways, and you will love the cozy and intimate atmosphere here. Sivory only has 55 rooms, all of which are designed so that you can make the most of your privacy and enjoy your relaxing Caribbean holiday.

Choose from Deluxe Junior Suites, Premium and Luxury Oceanfront Junior Suites, Honeymoon Suites, Ysla Bonita Suites and the Sivory Grand Suite (if you’re really in the mood to celebrate).
