Taste more than 100 wine labels from over 40 wineries and get up close and personal with 16 vintners and wine representatives during the festival.
The annual celebration by Ewineasia.com is returning this year with the theme “Back to the Fundamentals”, referring to the four elements that matter the most in the wine tasting experience: grapes, region, aromas and taste.
This year’s expanded wine discovery event will be held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where consumers will get to try a bigger variety of wines while enjoying a holistic tasting experience with professional glassware and accessories.
One of the highlights of this event is wine from Domaine de Bargylus in Syria, an estranged war-country and dubbed by Wine Spectator as the World’s Most Dangerous Wine, the only internationally recognised wine produced from grapes grown and picked in Syria.
Also, look out for Spanish wine by Alvaro Palacios, who was awarded the Decanter Man of the Year in 2015 with his wine produced in highly acclaimed wineries in Bierzo, Priorat and Rioja. On the Italian side, meet winemaker behind the Tuscany wine movement, Paolo di Marchi who produces Tuscans and Chiantis from his estate Isole e Olena.
The organiser, Ewineasia.com, is Singapore’s first online wine shop established in 2004 and currently represent 65 wineries from around the world.
