Lembong/Society Wines/NOW! Jakarta Wine Tasting

Wine and Dine | 17 June 2022

What better way to spend a balmy (well post-downpour!) evening in Jakarta then meet friends, nibble delicious canape’s and sip delightful glasses of wine? Well it turns out that so well-healed and well-prepared folks thought so too and came to the breezy sports compound at Kemang 25 for a very well done wine tasting evening.

Co-hosted by Lembong House in whose luxury housing complex the tennis and squash courts are located, Society Wines, who provided the excellent wines, and NOW! Jakarta, the idea was introduce some new ‘Wines of The New World’ to old friends. 

The Wines tasted were:

South Africa:

Douglas Green Rose

Douglas Green Chenin Blanc

Douglas Green Chardonnay Vlognier

Douglas Green Pinotage


Cono Sur Bicicleta Sauvignon Blanc

Cono Sur Bicicleta Carmenere

Cono Sur Bicicleta Pinot Noir

Cono Sur Bicicleta Cabernet Sauvignon


Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc

Dark Horse Merlot

Dark Horse Double Down

Dark Horse Red Blend


La Mascota Cabernet Sauvignon

La Mascota Malbec

All of which were available to order for very reasonable process-including delivery. 

Angkoso Soekadari, representing Lembong and Ra Hospitality took the opportunity to announce the imminent opening of Ra Suites Simatupang, a new luxury 5 Star hotel in South Jakarta and invited all participants to stay for one night free during the opening period. A truly generous offer. 

The evening was one several wine tastings by Society Wines who can be contacted by email on [email protected] if you are in need of replenishing your wine stocks!
