I’m not much of a wine drinker but every now and then I do enjoy a bottle of fine French wine with some great company over dinner. They said men are like wines, the aged well with age and I couldn’t agree more. I’m not implying that I’m getting ever better as I grow older… hehe, but I do find myself exploring things that I never thought I would enjoy. But wine appreciation is something new and interesting to me and I do have lots to learn. However, thanks to American Express and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, wine enthusiast like me will be able to learn more about wine as there will be a special event happening in Malaysia soon.

Robert Parker, one of the world’s most influential wine critics and writer is headed for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia this 8-9 March as part of Wine Advocate’s Grand World Tour, presented by American Express International, Inc. The Tour includes a five-city feast of exceptional fine wine and dining experiences in Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

If you’re new to wine and would like to know more about wine, there’ll be invaluable wine buying and tasting tips. Also to delight the local connoisseur, the team will present the Great Cabernet Sauvignons of the World for the event in Kuala Lumpur.
