Wine Connection shines the spotlight on Italy this April with an Italian Festival set to please palates at affordable prices.

Keen on Italian wine? Good news – Wine Connection, the largest chain of wine retail shops and full-service wine-themed restaurants in Southeast Asia, is currently running a month-long Italian festival this April celebrating Italian flavours.

For the month of April, diners can expect to find at all 32 Wine Connection outlets special prices for various Italian vino at discounts of up to 38% off. While the selection doesn’t quite cover the length and breadth of the boot-shaped Italian peninsula with its 20 winemaking regions, there’s enough of a selection to sate the most ardent of fans.

In fact, Wine Connection has exclusively brought in a slate of new Italians specially for the festival. They include the Caseletti 1850 Gold Primitivo Puglia IGT, for those who love their bold and rustic reds, the elegant and enchanting Ricossa Albarossa Piemonte DOC, vinified from Chatus (a.k.a. Nebbiolo de Dronero) and Barbera.

Whites worth checking out include three releases from Veneto-based Tinazzi, which owns and runs vineyards in both Veneto and Puglia. Their Dysme Fiano Puglia IGP, Nyktos Aglianico Puglia IGP and Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie DOC are shining examples of their individual varietal characteristics in its natural environment, giving the drinker a different expression of Italy when tasted side-by-side.

Wine Connection Italian Festival - chianti and arancini

There’s food too. In keeping with the Italian theme, Wine Connection’s kitchen team is offering, for a limited-time only, five Italian dishes – Beef Arancini, Chicken Parmigiana, Spicy Salsiccia Pizza, and Spaghetti Puttanesca at its bistros. They all go swimmingly well with the wine.

Wine Connection Capital Square, as part of the Italian Festival, is also hosting a special wine dinner on 27 April that will shine the spotlight on the wines from Tuscany’s Barbanera. Guests can get to taste four wines from the family-owned winery – Sangiovese in its various forms as a refreshing white wine, in its home ground in Chianti, or blended in Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano, and finally one made with Nero di Troia.

So if you’re missing a taste of Italy, drop in for the Wine Connection Italian this April. Oh, and a heads up – next month Wine Connection goes to France!
