California Wine Institute launches inaugural California Wine Month in Singapore this June, with top restaurants and retailers in town promoting California wines.
Oenophiles, take note. California Wine Month debuts in Singapore this June, and the first-ever food and wine festival will see wines from California celebrated at various top restaurants and retailers in Singapore.
Known for wines of exceptional quality, the state of California is the leading winemaking region in the United States. And while Napa Valley is perhaps the best known Californian wine appellation, increasingly wines from the many other AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) of its total of 143 across California are gaining renown as well.
This California Wine Month, Singaporeans will be able to explore the wonders of California wine. From 1 June to 10 July 2022, participating venues will be putting California wines up front and centre.
These on-premise venues include:
- La Dame de Pic (Raffles Singapore)
- Origin Grill & Bar (Shangri-La Singapore)
- Shang Palace (Shangri-La Singapore)
- Lawry’s The Prime Rib Singapore
For example, modern Californian restaurant Rosemead‘s principal sommelier has curated a wine flight featuring wines from highly-lauded AVAs from Napa Valley, Russian River Valley, and Pasa Robles from wine producers Cruse Wine Co, Deloach, Kistler, and If You See Kay. Then there’s whimsical French restaurant La Dame de Pic will showcase choice Californian labels with its newly-launched summer menu as put together by sommelier Justin Wee. Over at Shangri-La Singapore, group sommelier Britt Ng is offering a wine flight – featuring iconic AVAs such as Anderson Valley, Knights Valley, and Rutherford – that will be available at Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Shang Palace and western grill house Origin Grill & Bar.
Aside from these venues, there will also be an array of California wines on offer off-trade at RedMart and FairPrice.
So if you’re an oenophile – and a huge fan of California wine in particular – California Wine Month is going to set you in a golden state of mind.
