On Wednesday, April 28, wine lovers are invited to experience ‘An Ode to Passion’, a festive, one night only wine pairing dinner at Madison, at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, featuring wines carefully curated by five of Bangkok’s top female sommeliers.
The stellar rise of female sommeliers in Thailand is something Prestige has been keeping an eye on for quite some time, and five of these talented local ladies are being celebrated this month at Madison Steakhouse at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel. Wine connoisseurs are invited to indulge in an exquisite five-course dinner (THB 4,990++ per person), where five female sommeliers will lend their expertise to the vino pairings.
Taking place on Wednesday, April 28, from 6:30pm to 9pm, the aptly titled ‘An Ode to Passion’ event aims to empower the future of wine stewardship in Thailand by helping its female wine professionals shine. This quintet of elegant experts, from some of Bangkok’s leading fine-dining establishments, will guide diners through their beverage selections, explaining the origins and taste profiles of each wine.
The amuse-bouche and first starter – tuna and hamachi served with avocado, daikon and yuzu – are paired with “River Reflection”, a mystery wine selected by Sudarat Jankaew, the beverage ambassador and sommelier at Elements Restaurant. The next wine, a complex white, will be paired with a starter of lobster and white asparagus with tarragon, egg, and Chiang Mai greens. Prakaydaow Phoohuatalat, an assistant restaurant manager and sommelier at one of Bangkok’s fine five-star establishments, will explain her choice and walk the guests through the tasting notes.
Chanidapha Rakpirom, the wine and beverage consultant at Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, then presents a medium-bodied red to be served with succulent barbecue duck with pear, star anise, kale and jus. The second main course – Wagyu beef striploin with potato and mushrooms – will be accompanied by a complex, earthy red selected by Atchara Wongthai Palleros, sommelier at Paste Bangkok. Rounding it all off is a perfectly balanced combination of white chocolate, caviar and berries, together with a sumptuous wine exuding notes of floral and red fruits as chosen by Nutawan Jumpanak, the Wine Guru at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel and the first woman to win Thailand’s Best Sommelier (in 2019).
