Life is about sharing great moments together. Enjoying a glass of Hennessy is a decadent experience in itself. Destination Luxury is known for curating unique events around the world and we had the pleasure of hosting an event at Homeira and Arnold Goldstein's Manhattan Beach residence for the University of Southern California's Marshall Partners.
32 guests experienced Hennessy's Prestigious Journey of the Senses, a 5-course meal paired with different varieties of Hennessy Cognac. The evening was curated by art collector & philanthropist Homeira Goldstein. Her vision was to treat the Hennessy Spirits as stars of the evening. Two 18 feet long tables were positioned in a “V” shape to promote the vertical experience of the evening and to give Sten Lilja, Hennessy International Brand Ambassador, the perfect platform to address his audience. Sten's descriptions of the different spirits were educational and captivating and has our imaginations whirling.
Few and far between are magical moments such as this when we get the opportunity to interview someone as masterful as Sebastien Silvestri, the VP of Food/Liquor of the enormous Vegas entities, The Venetian and Pallazzo Hotels. He's hosted many luxury events and has put together a roster of the best chefs and mixologists under one roof. We wanted to understand the luxury palate of the man who helps pull together some of the most luxurious experiences in the world. Enter, Sebastien Silvestri.
