The Royal Cliff Wine Club recently celebrated their 9th anniversary with a very special wine tasting session for members.
The sold out event presented a very special and highly educational blind tasting in the spirit of this highly acclaimed wine club with members enjoying the opportunity to taste a total of 12 Sauvignon Blancs originating from a range of countries, as well as making the most of the challenge of identifying the wines country of origin following an introduction and educational instruction from a surprise guest speaker.
Mr. Ron Batori, President of Bangkok Beer & Beverages (BB&B) gave the talk, enlightening the group and highlighting the intricacies and techniques involved. A very seasoned and respected wine expert, Mr. Batori’s visit was significant in that he was the first ever guest speaker for the Royal Cliff Wine Club on its first ever event on April 28, 2001 when he was then the Managing Director of Ambrose Wines.
The passionate wine lovers in attendance were able to sample from a range of oaked and unoaked Sauvignon Blancs, from relatively simple wines to very precious and absolutely "heroic".
