Wine for Asia (WFA) and the Singapore Tourism Board recently invited many guests to attend their Wine For Asia 2010 Roadshow Presentation Tasting Event. I was down in Kuala Lumpur during the weekend to attend this roadshow, which was held at Vintry, Jaya 33.
The event started with welcome opening speech by Gerald Lum, area director Malaysia International Group, followed by Malcolm Tham, programme director of WFA and another by Thomas Ling, IBE.

Refreshments and wines were served and enjoyed by all. The guests had the opportunity to savor the Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc 2009 from the region of Marlborough in New Zealand and the red, 2007 Chateau de Seguin Grand Vin De Bordeaux.
The Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc 2009 from the region of Marlborough was a delicious crisp and intense white wine to start off the evening.
