Taking place alongside the inaugural Wine Pinnacle Awards will be The GREAT Wine & Dine Festival 2019, a a three-day celebration of the world of wines from 10 to 12 October 2019 at Resorts World Sentosa.
What used to be The GREAT Food Festival by Resorts World Sentosa is now The GREAT Wine & Dine Festival, to incorporate a larger wine component to the originally food-focused event. Wine lovers can look forward to a slew of activities including masterclasses by the world’s top wine critics, wine tastings, as well as wine pairing dinners at Resorts World Sentosa’s celebrity chef restaurants.
The festival will be opened to the public on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 October 2019, and will showcase more than 400 wines and sakes. Some of the wines featured are nominees in the inaugural Wine Pinnacle Awards, a new wine awards competition featuring wines that have been nominated by an esteemed panel of wine experts from around the world.
Aside from wine tastings, there will be a number of wine masterclasses taking place on both days, including Jewels of Tuscany on 11 October led by Sommelier of the World 2017 awardee Andreas Larsson and Understanding Terroir Through Pinot Noirs From Around The World by Jeannie Cho Lee MW, and Discovering Spain’s Diverse Grapes by Doug Frost MW MS on 12 October.
