NOTE: We had originally intended to feature China & India together, but after curating the wine list, we decided it would be better to feature India on a different session.
Taste over 50 wines over a series of 10 ‘voyages’, as we explore the famous and the up-and-coming wine regions of the world!
Now in its third season, the Riverboat’s Wine Voyages gives you the opportunity to learn more about wine whilst enjoying it with friends in a fun and social atmosphere on board Singapore’s very own floating F&B and lifestyle venue.
Begin with a welcome sparkling wine and tostada chips. Once everyone is settled in, listen to a short presentation on the day’s featured country/region by our guest wine specialist Akimi Yeo, followed by a guided tasting sequence of 4-5 other wines. Feel free to share your thoughts along the way, and ask questions anytime along the journey.
THIS VOYAGE: CHINA
When we mention Chinese wine, we usually think about rice wine or baijiu (white spirit made from sorghum grain). However, China also does have a long history of ‘grape wine’ production, with earliest historical records of Chinese wine dating back to 100BC during the reign of the Han dynasty!
As of today, one of the most noteworthy Chinese wine regions is the autonomous region of Ningxia. Located southwest of Beijing, this rising star has produced wines that have won numerous awards in both domestic and international competitions, and is also increasingly attracting global investors.
No doubt, the quality and reputation of Chinese wine is steadily on the rise, and in this voyage, we witness the evolution of Chinese wine.
