Fiercely loyal Aman groupies have another sybaritic reason to choose Amanresorts, since the company has just debuted a new Wine and Spirits Program. They’re putting family and boutique producers from every corner of the globe in the catbird seat when it comes to pouring a tipple.
From California's Napa and Anderson Valleys to Italy's Abruzzo and France's Champagne region, Amanresorts' more than 250 partners include artisanal wine and spirits producers such as Champagne Salon, Domaine Leroy, Fisher Vineyards, Martin Miller's Gin and Duncan Taylor Single Cask Rare Scotch Whiskeys. A partnership has also been forged with Riedel Glassworks of Austria. Many producers are developing reserves and single-vineyard bottlings of their finest vintages exclusively for Amanresorts. Others have made previously off-limits caves, private reserves and personal library selections available to Amanresorts alone.
Amanresorts can also arrange for its guests to be welcomed into the wineries, chateaux and homes of partners around the world. Several properties plan a full-scale rollout throughout the year. Here’s a hint of what guests can expect: Amangani in Jackson Hole, WY has introduced an innovative cocktail program and a selection of specialty spirits. Amanpuri in Thailand offers a 'Master' wine list of approximately 150 wines and a reserve list of rare vintages with a special focus on Italy. Amansara in Siem Reap, Cambodia focuses on French wines and serves a superb selection from the Domaine Leroy in Burgundy.
