Italian Wine Sommelier Competition 2015 by Texica June 23-24, 2015 at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok. Following the success of first 2 Italian-Wine Sommelier Competition in Thailand in 2013 and 2014, Texica is eager to achieve an even greater success and to make Italian wines more accessible, recognized, and reaching a higher ground of appreciation in Thailand, for the reason Italian wines are less popular in Thailand than they should be. And the knowledge on Italian wines of sommeliers and service staff in hotels and restaurants in Thailand is considerably inadequate to promote Italian wines in a great way. Texica aims to enhance the preference and appreciation of Italian wines in Thailand. Including improve the Italian-wine knowledge for those talents working in hotel and restaurant industry in Thailand.
This year Italian Wine Sommelier Competition is supported by the wines from many regions of Italy. The 2 day event starts with wine workshop, sommelier exam, and end with the Grand Wine Tasting. Some of the winery that participated for wine tasting event are Ferrari, Bottega, Marchesi di Barolo, Castellare, Nicolis, etc..
