Karisma Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Jackson Family Wines for 2013. Karisma’s 11 all-inclusive properties will offer selections from the Family Wines portfolio, totaling approximately 30 wine options. El Dorado Royale, A Spa Resort, by Karisma, also offers The Jackson Family Wines Culinary Series, by Karisma, a food and wine program that highlights a chef and winemaker each month. The selected talent will work with Karisma to create interactive events for guests, including vertical tastings, cooking classes and exclusive dinners.
The Culinary Series will take place the first week of each month at El Dorado Royale, though guests staying at any of the El Dorado or Azul Hotels can participate. The Culinary Series includes a “Wine Up” meet and greet on Monday; a wine class on Tuesday; a “Yucatan Meets California” five-course meal pairing southern Mexican cuisine with California wine on Wednesday; a cooking class and an internationally inspired four-course dinner on Thursday; an exclusive guest chef and winemaster dinner spectacle, featuring live video of chef and winemaster, on Friday; and a Saturday “Wine Down.” Each month will bring new talent, including participants of the Cancun Wine & Food Festival in March.
The weeklong Culinary Series is offered for an additional price of $300. A la carte rates for wines and ad hoc wine and culinary experiences for all Karisma Hotels & Resorts start at $35. www.karismahotels.com/culinaryseries
