BOCA recommends ‘SEA CHANGE MILLESIMATO (ROSÉ) PROSECCO’ with the Valentine’s special menu. ‘SEA CHANGE’ is a range of environmentally conscious wines that directly supports ocean conservation across the globe. The Prosecco rosé is made in the romantic Veneto region in Italy, light-bodied with a refreshing fizz and aromas of raspberries and strawberries. This ‘SEA CHANGE’ bottle comes with a starfish label. Why starfish? Well, out of the 40 species of starfish that exist, 8 are endangered. Starfish are also most commonly threatened by ‘Sea Star Wasting Disease’ which is said to be caused by global warming. Incredibly, eight different forms of plastic have been found in the stomachs of starfish.
The special menu is available on Sunday 14th of February 2021 for AED 495 for food only and for AED 655 including ‘SEA CHANGE’ Prosecco Rosé.
