Wine Voyage at Audi Fashion Festival 2013

An upcoming wine event. I think it will be more appropriate to say 'an upcoming wine and gourmet food' event.

The Straits Wine Company, organizer of the 'now annual' Singapore Wine Fiesta, is bringing a wine and food event this time round.

Its held over 5 days and is called 'Wine Voyage at Audi Fashion Festival'. While the 'fashion festival' part will see a series of fashion related activities over the 5 days, the 'Wine Voyage' part strives to bring a wholesome food and wine experience to the visiting public. A good range of wines, attending winery representatives and gourmet delicacies prepared by celebrity chefs have been planned to satiate one's gastronomic leanings.

Some details about this event:

Ticket price details:

$38.00 per person/day
(entitles ticket holder to one free wine tasting from each fashion capital. Additional wines will be sold at $5 to $10 per glass. Dishes prepared by gourmet chefs are priced from $5 to $20 and are sold on a per consumption basis.)

Organized together with Mercury Marketing & Communications, it showcases wines from around the world and gourmet food from fashion capitals like Berlin, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Sydney and Singapore. Food will be prepared by chefs from Deliciae Hospitality Management and My Private Chefs, and will include tapas and canapes.

Good thing is, for those keen to explore the interaction between food and wine, it offers an opportunity to purchase a variety of tapas and pair them with different wines. You need not purchase a whole bottle of wine; instead buy a few 'wine by glasses' and do some exploration :)
