Bali is known for many things – its temples, great food, stunning holiday villas, nightlife, and its wineries. Hatten Wines is proud to have yet another international achievement under their belts taking home 4 gold medals and 1 silver at the China Wine and Spirits Awards 2013, which were held in Hong Kong.
According to a recent news article, this is the largest and the most prestigious event of its kind in China and so for Hatten Wines this must be a very big deal.
Hatten Wines is the first and only Balinese winery that is located in the heart of Sanur. It has been in business since 1994 bringing their delicious wines to restaurants, bars, and hotels. This is a family owned winery, which makes this win that much more special. It is owned by the Dewi Sri company, the makers of Arak Bali and Brem Bali.
For locals this might not be too big of a surprise. After all, they are familiar with this tasty wine. Hatten Wines isn’t new to awards as they have taken several in the past years. But in this event there were 5,375 wines from 35 countries that were tasted and put to the test by the 100 judges. So to take a gold in that kind of competition should be a proud moment. To take 4 golds and 1 silver should puff you up like never before. Moreover, for wine drinkers you should certainly take note that this is a wine worth trying.
Growing grapes isn’t new to Bali, which started in the 20th century, but wine making has only occurred in the last couple of decades. For many they are surprised to discover that there are wineries in Bali. Hatten Wines encompasses 34.5 hectares of succulent mature grapes.
While you are visiting Bali, you should consider taking one or more winery tours. It’s a great way to spend some time and learn a little more about the wine industry in Bali.
