Wine Talk is a new concept created by the collaboration between Room Service Deliveries and Gastrodome, famed for operating La Bodega, Pressroom and Espressamente Llly.
Established in 2003, Room Service Deliveries has been a pioneer in the food delivery service in South East Asia with operations in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Room Service is a unique offering that relates to everyone – young, old, single, families, small companies and large corporations; any individual or group of people wanting dishes from their favourite restaurants delivered to their doorstep. As Malaysia’s leading food delivery service provider, Room Service Deliveries is undoubtedly the expert in service and logistics of the food delivery business.
As one of the largest independent restaurant operators in Kuala Lumpur, Gastrodome Management Services has impacted the Malaysian food & wine scene since the late nineties. Their unique collection of outlets are well known for consistently serving excellent cuisine ranging from mouth-watering Spanish tapas and super Spanish wines at their La Bodega outlets to the simple European tastes of The Press Room and Espressamente Llly.
Combining their expertise in both fields, Wine Talk aims to offer more than just a wine delivery service. Wine Talk invites Malaysians to embark on a Wine Journey by becoming a ‘Wine Explorer’.
The term ‘Wine Explorer’ is reserved for those who sign up for their Wine Journey; an exclusive service that introduces its members to new cases of wines that are especially hand-picked by sommelier, David Stephan. Alternatively, members may order their favourite wines from a complete list of almost 400 labels or from their carefully pre-selected mixed-cases.
David Stephan who is Wine Talk’s sommelier, studied hospitality and sommelerie in a professional school from the age of 16 in France, with internships including stints in various hotels & renowned restaurants in Paris. In the late 90’s, he moved to the exclusive island of St Barts, working in a 5-stars resort. The island is famous for stunning beaches and locations, but also high-end hotels and restaurants, frequented by the rich and famous including ‘L’Esprit Salines’, one of the island top restaurants at that time, where he managed a splendid premium wine list. In 2003, he moved to Shanghai, China, where he worked in relation with the wine industry for 8 years.
“This is a club, and its members will get to be a part of its development to enjoy and to be accorded with a wine journey that is meaningful and rewarding. We offer members an exclusive access to wines that are imported exclusively for Wine Talk whilst offering the opportunity for members to become Wine Explorers in their own right” said David Stephan, Wine Talk’s resident sommelier.
Each mixed case will comprise of history and tasting notes of each wine together with food pairing recommendations. Customers can choose from a selection of just reds to whites or a combination of red, rose, and white wines. Each case will have for example up to two bottles of each label, with wines selected from the world’s major wine regions.
Embark on a journey to discover wines from as far as Alsace, Eastern France to Stellenbosch, South Africa; from the classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to the less know Monte De Peceguina from Portugal. Some of these cases include best-sellers, classics and debutants from new world countries. Prices for a mixed case starts at just RM428 (6 bottles) and goes up to RM1,648 (12 bottles) for their “Luxury Collection” mixed case.
