After just 50 years, Margaret River is ranked among the world’s most famous and prestigious wine regions. To celebrate the 50 years since commercial wine production commenced, 18 renowned winemakers will be travelling to Singapore to host a series of events on August 30 and 31, offering something for everyone.
The events series will kick-off with a Degustation Dinner at Salt grill & Sky bar by Australian Luke Mangan, perched high up on 55th floor of ION Orchard Tower, in the heart of Singapore. The restaurant boasts stunning floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking panoramic views.
The evening will offer guests 11 award-winning Margaret River wines presented by the winemakers and Singapore’s Certified Wine Educator & Certified Wine Judge Lim Hwee Peng CWE, FWS.
The five-course degustation menu has been created to match the wines. The menu focuses on quality Australian and local produce.
The following day, the group of winemakers will move to the Equinox Restaurant on the 69th floor of the Swissotel The Stamford for two more events.
From 3.30pm–5pm an invitation only trade and media masterclass will be presented on Margaret River’s flagship varietals, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The attendees will then have the opportunity to preview the 50th Anniversary tasting celebration, prior to doors opening at 6pm to the general public.
From 6-9pm, the celebration of 50 years of Margaret River wine will offer a tasting of 50 wines and beautifully matched canapés using West Australian produce. Tickets now on sale.
Margaret River Wine Association Marketing Director, Amanda Whiteland says “Singapore is a very important export market for Margaret River wine and we are very excited to be sharing our 50th anniversary with our friends in Singapore”.
