Come Drink With Bob

Arguably the world's most reputed wine critic, Robert M Parker Jr caused quite a stir in the wine-loving community when he brought his Robert Parker's Grand World Tour to Singapore. Designed as an interactive and engaging series of events, the tour's Singapore stop was anchored by a formal gala — presided over by the man himself — at the ballroom of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Event partner Prestige was also on hand to host its wine-enthusiast friends, who were treated to dishes prepared by Anthony Genovese (of two-Michelin-starred restaurant, Il Pagliaccio), which were paired with wines such as Fontodi Flaccianello della Pieve 2004, Elena Fucci Aglianico del Vulture Titolo 2006 and Mastroberardino Radici Riserva, Taurasi 1998. Apart from Parker, wine critic Monica Larner was also on hand to give a commentary on the art of wine selection.
