For B1,000, you will be tasting over 80 Italian brands and premium boutique wineries, handpicked by Suckling himself. The selection includes Brunellos, Barolos, Tuscans, Barbarescos, Amarones, Chianti Classicos and many more. There will also be a screening of Suckling’s documentary, Great Wines of Italy: Alto Adige’s Vineyards in the Sky, which explores the wineries and vineyards of Northeast Italy.

The House on Sathorn welcomes Spanish chef Andoni Luis Aduriz from the two Michelin-starred Mugaritz in Spain this Dec 8-9. Aduriz’s blend of traditional Basque cuisine and avant-garde techniques has made the San Sebastian-hailing restaurant one of the most revered culinary spaces in the world (it’s also at no. 9 in World’s 50 Best this year). In Bangkok, the chef will be offering a 13-course dinner menu at B11,500 (B14,000 with wine pairing). We don’t have word on what those courses might be, just yet, but Aduriz’s cuisine is always about the best of Basque, whether its fresh Atlantic seafood or rich, mature beef (this is the part of the world that gives us Rubia Gallega).
