The distinguished event at RWS Resorts World Ballroom in Singapore hosted nearly 500 leading figures and luminaries in the wine world which included distinguished winemakers, top wine professionals, and wine enthusiasts. The much-awaited celebration was the finale of a five-day programme that featured exclusive wine dinners, masterclasses, and a two-day symposium.
Mr Tan Hee Teck, CEO of Resorts World Sentosa, said “It’s a pleasure to see a great variety of guests from all over the world represented here tonight. The diversity on display – both in terms of attendees and the geographical origin of the nominees – beautifully demonstrates the dedication of Wine Pinnacle Awards to celebrating diversity, inclusivity, and excellence. Leading a business, let alone a vintage, to triumph can be an uphill battle, and, as such, we are eager to shine the spotlight on the commitment, ability, and sheer hard work of our deserving nominees and winners. I wish them the best of luck for the future and congratulate them on their win in these prestigious awards.”
A Celebration of Excellence
The 18 winners were celebrated while guests enjoyed an exquisite eight-hands, four-course collaboration dinner, by four internationally renowned chefs: chef Arnaud Dunand Sauthier (2 Michelin stars, Maison Dunand Bangkok), chef Cedric Vongerichten (Wayan, New York), chef Guillaume Galliot (3 Michelin stars, Caprice Hong Kong) and chef Olivier Bellin (2 Michelin stars, L’Auberge des Glazicks).
