As of March 1, 2015, guests of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts will be able to enjoy an expanded complimentary wine list featuring a selection of Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks varietals, as well as on-resort programming including wine pairings and tastings.

Approachable and easy to drink, six Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks varietals; Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc have been selected as Sandals Resorts’ complimentary house wines due to their ability to pair with the resorts’ global authentic cuisine.

“Like Sandals, Mr. Robert Mondavi always believed wine, food and good company enrich the soul and contribute to a gracious lifestyle,” comments Dana Andrus, senior wine educator at Robert Mondavi Winery. “This partnership is all about the about the belief that we can enhance the consumer experience by matching wonderful food served in spectacular locations with the enjoyment of great wines.”

Sandals and Beaches resorts will also offer guests the opportunity to expand their knowledge of wine through wine pairing courses, weekly wine and cheese receptions and wine tastings. To complement the experience, employees will undergo extensive training from glassware selection to wine list advice.

With recent trends from Impact Databank showing wine sales growing at a rate of 2 to 3 percent every year in the US and California vintners claiming 57 percent of the market, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International believes that wine is no longer just a beverage but part of a comprehensive experience.

“Our guests, like most consumers, are enjoying more wine at home and becoming more knowledgeable on the subject and we want to ensure that when they visit one our resorts, their wine experience – from selection to service – exceeds expectations. To be the best, we have to partner with one of the world’s best and Robert Mondavi Wines fits the bill.”

Sandals Resorts is the World’s leading all inclusive company for 19 years in a row and offers luxury vacation experiences in the Caribbean with fourteen stunning beachfront settings in Jamaica, Antigua, Saint Lucia, The Bahamas, Barbados and Grenada.

Let’s toast this collaboration as Robert Mondavi Wines becomes part of the extraordinary Sandals experience.
