Great Wines of Italy Bangkok is the biggest and best opportunity ever in Thailand to taste Italy's greatest wines. Over 120 different wines will be poured from almost 60 of Italy's greatest wineries on December 2 & 3, all carefully selected by the world's leading authority on Italian wine, James Suckling, who will be at the event in person.


More than four dozen wine producers are here for the event and more than 120 great wines will be served. These are the best wines of Italy, including such famous wines as Brunello di Montalcino and Barolo as well as Amarone and Chianti Classico, and such leading wineries as Ornellaia, Pio Cesare and Tasca d'Almerita.
