Exclusive wine list created in partnership with industry expert Jamie Goode launches at a selection of hotels
India, 19th November 2018 – Ramada by Wyndham is one of the world’s most recognised hotel brands, with over 850 locations in more than 60 countries. Whether travellers are venturing to the edge of the earth, or simply to the edge of town, Ramada invites them to ‘Say Hello to Red’, a colour that has come to symbolise the brand’s warm and welcoming approach to hospitality. To bring to life the brand’s global presence and signature colour, Ramada has teamed up with wine expert, author and prolific blogger, Jamie Goode, to craft a special red wine list which offers guests a taste of some of the many exciting destinations where Ramada hotels can be found.
Jamie Goode is a UK-based, internationally renowned, writer and wine expert. He is a regular columnist for The Sunday Express, he holds a PhD in plant biology and is the founder of wineanorak.com, one of the most comprehensive wine resources on the web. Building on his expertise and passion for wine, Jamie has carefully curated an exclusive red wine list for Ramada, combining grapes from some of the world’s most renowned wine regions with lesser-known yet distinctive tastes.
The Ramada Red Wine List has launched at a selection of hotels*, from India to Italy, Turkey to Tanzania. Each hotel has stocked a bespoke selection of red wines, featuring different styles aligned to Jamie’s recommendations, which have been carefully selected to appeal to a wide range of taste buds, whether you are a wine aficionado, or just want to try something new.
Jamie Goode commented: “Ramada was the ideal hotel brand for me to partner with on this project because my passion for wine and Ramada’s passion for hospitality were perfectly matched. The brand’s intercontinental presence in some of world’s most well-known destinations, as well as in locales less travelled, provided lots of inspiration in creating a truly unique and exciting red wine tasting experience. It is my hope that hotel guests and visitors alike are encouraged by my selection of wines to sample something new and different.”
John Griffin, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts EMEA, said: “All around the world, travellers are welcomed into Ramada by the brand’s signature red colour, which has come to symbolise warm hospitality and a comfortable stay. This list of wines of the world is another way to delight our guests and to offer them a taste of just some of the incredible destinations where the brand can be found. Through Jamie’s recommendations guests can embark on a journey without even leaving the hotel.”
Ramada by Wyndham is part of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the hospitality powerhouse with more than 9,000 hotels across more than 80 countries.
