Top Tipples: Glenfiddich’s whisky-infused mooncakes, Wine Lust festivities

Wine lovers will have much to enjoy over the next three weeks, thanks to the return of the Wine Lust festival organised by 1-Group, which owns bars and restaurants across the island.

Highlights include an Argentina wine-tasting event ($38++ a person) at the Atico Lounge in Ion Orchard on Aug 24. Guests can sample more than 20 wines from the South American nation, which ranks in the top 10 of the world’s biggest wine producers.

For those keen to learn more about wine from a master sommelier, The Summerhouse at Seletar is hosting a French Wines Masterclass ($48++ a person) on Sept 4 with Hugues Mangot of local retailer Crystal Wines.

The restaurant, which offers French farm-to-table cuisine, has also teamed up with the wine shop to offer a four-course wine-pairing dinner ($128++) daily until Sept 10.

Botanico at the Botanic Gardens has also lined up a five-course wine-pairing dinner ($128++) on Aug 25, featuring selections from Australia’s Maxwell Wines alongside dishes like pan-seared black cod with broccolini and rutabaga puree.

The bistro is also highlighting the blended red Petra Zingari Toscana 2017 ($16++ a glass, $75++ a bottle) as its special Wine of the Month until Sept 10.
