Imbibe the magic of the Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 at Origin Grill, where it is paired with a special lunch and dinner menu, and served in a private dining room complete with Dom Pérignon trolleys and glasses. The Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 is one of the most expensive Rosé Champagnes in the world, with a versatility that allows food pairings to be creative, slightly eccentric, or even unexpected. For instance, the lunch menu starts with Australian ocean octopus with kimchi mayo, seaweed panko, burnt leek purée and onion ash, while the dinner menu features a main of Murray Bridge lamb rack with basil macerated American strawberries, salt baked parsnip and rosé jus. Guests will also get to experience the exclusive Dom Pérignon service ritual from the ceremonious opening of the bottle to the art of pouring a glass of bubbles as part of the dining experience.
Almaviva and Cantonese Classics Wine DinnerShang Palace:

Friday, 10 September 2021, 7 pm to 10 pm

S$198++ per person

Chile takes the spotlight at this wine dinner at Shang Palace. To present an exquisite dining experience, three wine labels from Concha y Toro are paired with Cantonese dishes that have been specially curated to commemorate Shangri-La Singapore’s 50th anniversary this year. The star of the evening is the six-litre Methuselah-size 2018 Almaviva, which is paired with pan-fried Australian prime ribeye. A Chilean Bordeaux blend, it is full-bodied, intense, and widely regarded as the country’s most expensive and reputable wine. Almaviva was established in 1996 by Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Concha y Toro.
 
Antinori Family Wine Lunch

Waterfall Ristorante Italiano:

Saturday, 11 September 2021, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm

S$108++ per person

Indulge in four wines from the Antinori family over lunch at Waterfall Ristorante Italiano. Having been committed to the art of winemaking for more than six centuries, each of the wines presented by the 26th generation Antinori family is rooted in a spirit of innovation yet without deviating too far away from tradition. The highlight of the menu is the 2017 Tignanello from Tuscany, one of the most iconic wines in Italy, served with a grilled stockyard beef Angus ribeye. Savoury and elegant on the nose, crushed violets lead the way for an intense palate of cassis, wild blackberries, perfumed black plums and quality Kirsch.
1971 Vintage Wine Dinner

Shang Palace:

Saturday, 11 September 2021, 7 pm to 10 pm –

S$888++ per person

The 1971 wine dinner is a tribute to Shangri-La Singapore and Shang Palace as they both celebrate their 50th anniversaries this year. In an event as rare as the wines served, guests can look forward to seven 50-year-old vintage wines from France and Italy, paired with signature Cantonese cuisine from Shang Palace. Swirl, sniff and sip the 1971 Misserey et Frére, Vosne-Romanée from Burgundy, France, for instance, which goes with one of Executive Chinese Chef Mok Kit Keung’s iconic dishes, the deep-fried boneless chicken wing filled with bird’s nest and fresh crab meat. This is a light red wine with mature cherry aromas and plenty of earth that has a supremely elegant finish. Also notable is the 1971 Borgogno, Barolo from Piedmont, Italy that is matched with a grilled Australian prime Wagyu beef tenderloin. The medium-bodied red wine was purposely picked for its ability to complement the meat and its accompaniments of Yunnan yellow mushroom and black truffle sauce.  
Boozy Sunday Brunch

Origin Grill:

Sunday, 12 September 2021, 12 pm to 2:30 pm

S$128++ per person
Look forward to an afternoon of gastronomic indulgence paired with wines and Champagnes at Origin Grill. Start with a free-flow selection of appetisers such as yuzu and sake cured trout and Apulian burrata before tucking into the rest of the three-course set menu featuring heartier favourites like the Westholme Wagyu petite tender and pink snapper. Be further enthralled by a roving trolley stocked with a bottomless bevvy of wines and Champagnes that are not commonly available. Handpicked by Britt, these include the 1985 Domaine Rolet, Poulsard Vielles Vignes, Arbois, Jura France, which presents notes of gentle spices, and the Rockford Sparkling Shiraz, Barossa, Australia, which is loaded with rich ripe fruit flavours and very fine tannins.
Hidden Gems of France by the Sea

Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, Singapore:

Sunday, 12 September 2021, 6 pm to 10 pm –

S$128++ per person
Be serenaded by the sound of gentle waves lapping at the shore and bask in the hues of the sun setting into the shimmering South China Sea at this alfresco barbecue dinner held along the beach at Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, Singapore. Look out for a pale gold 2017 chardonnay from Domaine Rolet with silver reflections, which comes from one of the flagship wineries from the Jura region. Equally compelling is Chateau l’Escarelle’s 2020 Les Deux Anges Rosé from Provence, with its bouquet of wild strawberries and citrus. Both pairs incredibly well with the grilled seafood entrées on the menu like langoustine and scallops.

Grower Champagnes Unite

The Lobby Lounge:

Tuesday to Sunday, 7 to 12 September 2021, 7 am to 10:30 pm
Grower Champagnes, or bottles from artisanal winemakers who produce Champagnes only from estate-owned vineyards, make an appearance at The Lobby Lounge this Festival of Wines. With styles ranging from blanc de blancs to blanc de noirs and flavour profiles ranging from sharp to voluptuous, the selection of pours handpicked by Britt is guaranteed to please a diversity of palates. Look out for Pierre Gerbais Grains de Celles Extra Brut Champagne which is smooth and soft with aromas of citrus and white fruits, as well as Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru Champagne, which offers savoury notes of butter and toast with a chalky finish.
