    "Wine and Art is a counterpart" Both wine and art expert agree with the above phrase because most of wineries' owner produce wine by the art way, many of wine labels also have been created by the world famous artists.

    Start a 2011 new year with the classical of wine and art at Meevasana Wine and Art Gallery. This is another restaurant which has the weird and wonderful name. You can pronounce the name with different accents. The actual pronunciation is Mee-va-sa-na Wine and Art Gallery but I am preferred to speak in a different way which leads to the meaning of Fortune and Good Luck. So it means if you have enough good luck then you can have good wine, good friend, good food as well as good art.

    "Meevasana Wine and Art Gallery" located on Ekamai road; it's a unique characteristic by mixing art to decorate the restaurant matching with a thousand kinds of wine from the famous regions in the world. Especially the bottle which they have imported by themselves, most of them are hardly to find in Thai market. Moreover, all of them are selected by leading sommeliers of Thailand.

    Besides various kinds of wine, customer can also enjoy the variety of artworks from leading artists of Thailand which have been decorated all over the restaurant. In the meantime you can also fulfill your stomach by our nice cuisines which go well with each wine. To avoid boring, they always change and rotate the food list all the time.


    I extremely recommend this restaurant for wine lovers. They serve both taking home and drinking in. Especially for the latter, you can meet up the leading sommeliers of Thailand then you can talk to them, exchange the point of view of wine issues. Drinking wine with someone who knows about wine or interested to learn about wine is also important. In addition, it makes the taste much better.

    The owner revealed that it is such a high risk to invest in this kind of restaurant but he still does. It is because of his passion for both wine and art. He is very glad to see people drinking wine and enjoy artwork with the happiness. The distinctiveness of this restaurant is the customer can get an extra discount while visiting if they have the same style and can get along well with the owner.

    "Meevasana Wine and Art Gallery" imports wine from several countries such as France, Italy, and Chile. Particularly the French wine which they have a plentiful. A lot of them have been produced in the small regions which there are just only a few importer trades in. Some brands come from a large area but it is a boutique winery which makes a very good quality wine. Sample wines that I had tasting shown as below.

    Domaine Duclaux, Chateauneuf du Pape, 2006The owner of this winery is Quiot family which established the winery since 1748. It is an ancient winery in Chateauneuf Du Pape. Now Jerome Quiot, who is the current generation, takes care this winery as well as another six more wineries. Chateauneuf Du Pape is in Southern Rhone Valley. In the past, they produced red wine by blending 13 grape varieties but for these days, there is a few wineries currently use. The majority of winemaker blends just 4-6 grape varieties. Domaine Duclaux is one of the red wine which made by blending with 13 grape varieties. Grenache and Mourvedre are big proportion. It is fermented in a bucket of cement, stainless and oak. It has dark red color. Smell berry, cherry, leather, cinnamon, and licorice. This wine is one of the classic wines of Chateauneuf Du Pape in the Thai market.

    Chateau de Flaugergues, Cotaeux du Languedoc, 2003Coteaux means hills filled with vineyards. It is one from five AOC of Languedoc, also one of the biggest AOC near Mediterranean Sea. This chateau is very ancient and was established over 300 years, located near Montpellier. This is a version of 'Constance' and comes from La Majanelle winery which is 1 of 12 areas where the weather's the best. It is presented in Magnum(1.5L). Blending is done with Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. It is dark red color and ready to drink. The style is new world fruity but not much spicy as the smell of plum, berry, and ripe fig as well as oak. Anyway, it finishes with moderate fruit ripening.

       Chateau Cantinot, Premieres Cotes de Blaye 2006is from AOC Premieres Cotes De Blaye. It is hardly to find a bottle of this wine in the Thai market. Premieres Cotes De Blaye is 32 km. away from the Bordeaux heading to the northern. It is on the right hand side of Gironde River. Blending is done with Merlot (50%), Cebernet Sauvignon (35%), and Cabernet Franc (10%), also be fermented for 12 months in French oak barrels. Chateau Cantinot has purple color and got a smell of blueberry, cherry, currant, plum, smoke, freshly ground herbs and spicy pepper. It presents itself with medium tannin, full body and finish with the ripe plum. Anyway, it should be more perfect drinking in the next year onward. Moreover, they also present another wine which is a version of cuvee called, Les Tours de Cantinot, Premieres Cotes de Blaye. This is another wine that contains a fabulous quality.

    Domaine Raissac, Terra Incognita 2008, from Viennet family. This winery was established since 1837 on the hill near Mediterranean Sea, Southern of France. The current management is Gustave- Marie Viennet, the sixth generation. It is VIN de Pays D'oc blending with Syrah (50%) and Grenache (50%). Bright red wine with a smell of fruits ripening such as berry, strawberry, and blackcurrant. Simple to drink as it presents a little soft tannin, little bit spicy and medium finish.

    Domaine Raissac, Gustave Fayet, Cuvee 2007, the same owner as the above but this wine combines with Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Merlot (30%). It was fermented in French oak barrels for 12 months. The color is dark purple red. It presents the smell of black fruit such as blackberry, plum, and blackcurrant as well as toast, vanilla and chocolate. Finish is quite long with licorice and tobacco. This is kind of VIN de Pays D'oc which the quality is over than the price and not that easy to get in Thai market.

    Chateau Moulin du Cadet, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2005, is one of the interesting wines of Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe. This winery was found since 1867. The vineyard covers an area of 5 hectares and run bio-dynamically. Bio-dynamically is chemical free method. Additionally, as of 2005 it has become the first vintage which is certified for Biodyvin Ecocert certificate that it was 100% chemical free involved. One more thing, the vintage 2005 has an excellent taste, followed by 2000. It is 100% Merlot with the age of 35 year. The alcoholic fermentation is conducted during 2 to 4 weeks through a temperature control process in concrete tanks. After, the wine is aged in French oak barrels during 12 to 18 months (50% of them are new oak). Subsequently, wine will be silted by the egg white and bottled by unfiltered which make we can get the authentic taste of it. Dark and intense garnet coloured robe. The structure is rich and full with lovely fleshy tannins that provide a long finish. Anyhow, the 2005 vintage is not the peak period of it. It would be more fantastic taste in the next 2-3 years ahead. It presents a smell of plum, berry, raspberry, cedar, mocha, medium tannin and finish with the sweet tarts.

       Moreover, they also have Chilean wines such as Bill, Pinot Noir, Casablanca Valley, Chile 2007 It is 100% Pinot Noir which is easy to drink with high fruity. It has a good smell of cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and wet leaves. Another wine isAlbama, William Cole Vineyards, Sauvignon Blance, Casablanca Velley, Chile 2010The variety is sauvignon blanc which presents the ripe guava, ripe mango, fresh grass, contains very good acid which can make you feel fresher.

    For the one who is preferred Grand Cru wine, they also have loads of it. The latest one I just tasted was Chateau Trotanoy, Pomerol 2005This is from AOC Pomerol region which is next to Chateau Petrus. Chateau Petrus is the area which produces the second most expensive red wine in the world. Chateau Trotanoy is blended with Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) with the age 35 years. They have been produced with the little quantity, just 3,500 cases of 12 bottles per year. Anyhow, it is going to be more perfect and ready to drink by the next 5-6 years ahead.

    Chateau Latour, Pauillac 1993is one of five wines from 1855 Medoc Classification, mixing together with Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Merlot (15%). It is dark red with smell of blackcurrant, berry, nuts, cedar, caramel, and oak. It also presents smooth tannin, full body and a very good acid.
