The Reverie Saigon is presenting a fine dining experience in collaboration with the award-winning Castello Banfi vineyard & winery at the hotel‟s R&J Italian Lounge & Restaurant from November 20 through 24.


Lovers of Italian wines won't want to miss this opportunity to enjoy a sumptuous, six-course tasting menu by the estate's Chef Giuseppe Sposito served with an impressive range of its Tuscan wines paired by Banfi Wine Ambassador Guillaume Blanchard.
Dating back to the 9th century, Castello Banfi is a family-owned vineyard estate and winery located in Tuscany‟s Montalcino region. The estate was founded on the philosophy of blending tradition with innovation, and is recognized as a pioneer in elevating the standards of Italian winemaking.
Born in Brusciano, a province of Naples, Chef Sposito began working in restaurants at only 16 years old before attending the culinary school Istituto Alberghiero in Cicciano. He then worked at the Michelin-starred restaurant Parizzi in the city of Parma, and the 2 Michelin-starred Perbellini. He subsequently moved to the restaurant of Castello Banfi. “At Banfi I have continued to create good food and cultivate my passion for cooking expressed through the simplicity and elegance of fine dining,” he said.

Chef Sposito‟s sumptuous creations with paired wines include Pappa al Pomodoro (Fresh tomato, garlic, basil and Tuscan bread, extra virgin olive oil) matched with Banfi Tener Vino Spumante Brut; „Caciucco‟ Livornese Salad (Lobster, tuna tarta, scampi, oyster, crab, black olive and caper salad) matched with Centine Bianco IGT Tuscany; Ribollita (Traditional Tuscan vegetable soup, finocchiona samali, farmer‟s bread) paired with Banfi Aska Bolgheri; Pappardelle Cinghiale (Home-made pasta with wild boar ragout, truffle and Pecorino Toscano cheese) paired with Cum Laude IGT Toscana; Guancia Maremmana (16-hour-cooked beef cheek with potato, porcini, hazelnuts and Montalcino honey sauce) matched with a Poggio Alle Mura Brunello di Montalcino; and Cioccolato, Amarena, Pistacchio (Chocolate and pistachio ice-cream with almond crumble, with Banfi Florus Amarena cherry sauce) matched with Rosa Regale Brachetto d‟Acqui. Mr. Kai Speth, Vice President Operations and Business Performance of WMC Group, which operates The Reverie Saigon, said the Castello Banfi wine dinner continued the hotel‟s tradition of hosting superior culinary events. “We are very pleased to have Chef Sposito with us all the way from Italy for what promises to be memorable nights for Saigon‟s lovers of fine food and wine,” he said.

The special wine dinner on November 20 is priced at just 2,488,000++ per person. The dinners on November 21 through 24 are 1,488,000++ or 2,488,000++ with paired wines.
Taking its name from Shakespeare‟s epic romance, Romeo and Juliet, R&J stokes a similar passion in lovers of traditional Italian cuisine. Prepared under the watchful eye of a renowned Italian chef, the menu at R&J features exquisite Italian cuisine, prepared with the finest seasonal produce and presented with flair right in the heart of Saigon.
