Women members of W3 including patron member Gul Panag, Kiran Patil and Sonal Holland, reporter of this event, assembled at the Olive Restaurant patio where a mouth watering Bellini served as a welcome drink. For those who preferred their wine straight- Zardetto Prosecco, a stunningly youthful and refreshing sparkling wine from Veneto, Italy was poured perfectly chilled. Dharti Desai and Chandni Dhall, the founding ladies behind W3 ensured that guests were engaged in a joyful conversation surrounding wine, beauty and wellbeing.
Women guests unravelled into the secrets of maintaining flawless, ageless and beautiful skin through their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s as Lancome’s Skincare Education Manager Sonali Gogia indulged members in an interactive discussion, whilst Lancome’s make up expert Stafford Braganza shared valuable make-up techniques through a live demonstration on a rather spontaneous member guest. Skin diagnosis and consultation were also being offered to the ladies at the event.
Craig Wedge, Senior VP of Fine Wines n More and Consultant to W3 introduced the Prosecco as a terrific no-fuss Italian sparkler with pure citrus and stone-fruit flavours, and as one of the best ‘value for money’ buys in its category on the Indian market, aptly admitting to being part of an afternoon that not just celebrated the beauty of women, but also one that celebrated the beauty of this wine.
