Wine Pinnacle Awards Culminates in a Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony!
The Wine Pinnacle Awards celebrated great wines this November, culminating with the Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony 2022 held on Tuesday this week. The five day event saw people attending the events and learning more about exquisite wines. This also included exclusive wine dinners, industry masterclasses, and a two-day symposium. The Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony celebrated 18 winners of the second edition of Wine Pinnacle Awards presented by Resorts World Sentosa (RWS).The dinner and awards ceremony saw nearly 500 of the leading figures and luminaries in the wine world attending, which included distinguished winemakers, top wine professionals, and wine enthusiasts alike.
Guests got to indulge in an exquisite eight-hands, four-course collaboration dinner, specially curated by four of the most talented and renowned chefs in the world: 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).
The chefs each presented a course meticulously paired with rare and exceptional wines from Domaine de Montille, Château Léoville-Las Cases, and Weingut Joh. Jos. Prüm. "As a chef, it’s all about tasting, discovering, and having an open mind. Like wine, as it ages and becomes more elegant and refined, the more I travel, the more knowledge I gather, and I get better and better with age and experience as long as there is passion in the mind," explained three-star Michelin Chef Guillaume Galliot.
Highlights of the awards dinner included the ‘Technical Committee’s Choice’, a coveted title presented by the five members of The Technical Committee. That particular award went to Jackson Family Wines, and Ms Barbara Banke, Chairman and Proprietor of the company received the award on their behalf. The diversity and excellence was apparent from the 18 award categories that include recognition towards mature wines that are ready to drink, such as Best Vintage Bordeaux Red from 1996/1998/2000 and Best Vintage Champagne from 2002/2004/2008, ‘Best Recent Releases’, ‘Comfort Wines'.
