Taste 80 of Italy's best wines for B1,000.

Prolific wine critic James Suckling (a former editor of Wine Spectator magazine) brings his Great Wines of Italy event back to Bangkok this Dec 8 at the Grand Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Erawan hotel.

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.

A regular face in Bangkok, Suckling was described in 2010 by Forbes Magazine as "one of the most powerful wine critics." 

Early bird tickets can be purchased here with a special price for people aged under 28 at B649.
