wine 01Sipping a glass of ice cold French sparkling wine on a summer’s afternoon, looking out at the Tianjin skyline - this is one of those precious moments that life sometimes throws at you, and that you should not let pass.

wine 02The venue was the CIELO Outdoor Terrace at the renowned Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin. Situated on the 9th floor and leading out of the famed CIELO Restaurant, the outdoor terrace offers a splendid view of the city. It has ample outdoor seating that can accommodate either small groups for intimate conversations or larger groups of friends for a relaxing get-together. Beside the Outdoor Terrace you can find Aria on 9, Sky Garden that it is an outdoor bar offering refreshing cocktails, beer-on-tap and a variety of other drinks with an incredible view of Tianjin. For the peckish, the menu has a selection of snacks to enjoy with your favourite drinks.

wine 03The Outdoor Terrace was the perfect venue for the special event of the day - Wine Lovers’ Afternoon, organized by Tianjin Plus Magazine and hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin. Guests were welcomed with a perfectly chilled glass of bubbly, served from the ice buckets. It was a golden opportunity to meet new people from many different countries and backgrounds. The atmosphere was jovial, and strangers soon became friends.

wine 04The stars of the day were the superb wine selections from Australia, Chile, US and South Africa, complementing the delectable canapes and cheese platters prepared by the CIELO restaurant’s chefs and served at the long, elegantly laid table. Whether you prefer a dry white wine or a more fruity white wine, a dark ruby red or a lighter spicy red, there was something for every taste.

wine 05Good food and good wine go together. The buffet dinner, served inside the CIELO Restaurant, exceeded all expectations. The quality of the dishes lived up to the high standards the distinguished quests at the Four Seasons Hotel Tianjin have become used to. Diners could choose from the cold and hot buffet on offer, each dish with its own distinct flavours and tastes, prepared with care by the experienced chefs. The bread station had a huge selection of rolls and bread, with all the condiments you can think of, such as flavoured olive oils and herb butter. Fresh salads and vegetables were tastefully displayed. Guests were absolutely spoiled for choice, and their enjoyment and appreciation of the food was shown by their full plates.

wine 06The day faded into night, and dusk was replaced by the twinkling lights of the city stretching beyond the Outdoor Terrace. As the guests enjoyed the meal and the company they shared around the long table, you could hear the chatter and exchange of phone numbers, a sure sign that mere acquaintances had become friends. The clinking of wine glasses and toasts to a good life and future were accompanied by pleasant music in the background.

To round off a perfect evening, there was an opportunity to choose from the wide selection of sweets and desserts. The dessert station is housed in its own room, with glass shelves and a centre island on which some of the exquisite delicacies are displayed. Dainty meringues in all colours are served from huge glass jars. Again, there was something for every taste, from mini-crème brûlée to the ever-popular tiramisu, rainbow cake, cheese cake and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate truffles.

wine 07It was clear that the guests were not eager to leave, and the animated conversations went on deep into the balmy night. Even as the city below went to sleep, the wine kept flowing and invitations were exchanged. At last it was time to leave, and everyone reluctantly said their goodbyes. It was most certainly one of the best events so far this summer, and hopefully a prelude for many more such occasions to follow. In the light of renewed fears and uncertainties, we should grasp every opportunity to appreciate and enjoy life, family and friends. Without doubt, Tianjin and its very fine establishments also need our support during these times.wine 08
