Sky Lounge by The Westin Surabaya, an elegant lounge which is also the tallest lounge in Surabaya, presents a special event for wine connoisseurs this month. “Wine Fine Day”, which was held on Friday, June 24, 2022, was special because Sky Lounge by The Westin Surabaya exclusively brought Janisaa Pradja Sanders, an expert Indonesian wine sommelier. In collaboration with PT. DSP (Dwimitra Sukses Perkasa), distributor of Indonesian wine and spirits, The Westin Surabaya indulged wine lovers as well as guests who want to learn more about different types of wine and their differences, directly with a wine sommelier.
“Tonight, there were around 100 guests and invitees who attended ‘Wine Fine Day’. Actually, tonight is one of the days in the Wine Week series at the Sky Lounge, from June 20 to June 30, 2022. At Wine Week, we collaborate with Fantini Wine to present exclusive promotions and also the Wine Tasting Flight event, which consists of 5 types of wine and canapés. And the enthusiasm of visitors from the first day was already full, and one of the peaks tonight was because Janisaa Pradja was accompanying me,” explained Jennyfer Sondak, Sky Lounge Manager.
A glimpse of Janisaa Pradja, an Indonesian wine sommelier. As a professional that is required to be able to recognize every taste and aroma of wine and combine it with the right food, Janisaa is not half-hearted in carrying out her knowledge from an early age. She was educated for 4.5 years at California Polytechnic, San Luis Obispo California. From there, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Enology (winemaking) and then WSET level 2. This American-Indonesian woman has also become a brand ambassador for several well-known brands, such as Schott Zwiesel Indonesia and Moet & Chandon.
“I’m really excited to be in Surabaya, and to The Westin Surabaya. This is my first time here, and I’m always happy to be able to share wine with more people. I hope there will be many events like this, to educate about wine because in my opinion wine is unique and always interesting to explore,” explained Janisaa Pradja at the Sky Lounge.
On this occasion, The Westin Surabaya also talked further with Janisaa Pradja on The Westin Surabaya’s podcast, called ‘Today with Westin’.
