WINE FOR ASIA 2009

This Wine For Asia 2009 is rated as Asia's most comprehensive international wine exhibition.

Countless innovative ideas were introduced to make this show a big success.

To promote wine trading activities and help develop the wine industry in Singapore, the Singapore Government had announced that duty and GST will be exempted for a specified quantity of wine for use at approved wine exhibition and conference events, like WFA, with effect from 1 April 2009.

Exemption of Duty and GST for exhibitors of WFA lowered the cost for participation at WFA 2009.

WFA's aggressive buyer program invited 100 hosted buyers from the region to the Wine For Asia 2009.

The Penfolds Grange Vertical Tasting was organised in collaboration with The Wine Review and Foster's Asia. The range spanned over two decades of super vintages1983, 1991, 1998, 2002 and 2004.

Then the first ever Pinot Noir Forum on style evolution, organised in conjunction with the Burgundy Promotion Office, Austrade, California Wine Institute and VDP.

The organiser flew in the newly crowned German Wine Queen to speak at two high powered German wine seminars – The German Varietals and The German 1st Growth Tastings.

There was the Southeast Asia Sommelier Competition, organised by Sopexa and supported by Wine For Asia.

The Wine Safari Tour was organised to let the WFA visitors feel the heartbeat of Singapore's wine and dine scene, in a journey through the memory lane of wine. Starting with a sumptous dinner, followed by river cruise down Singapore River before rounding off with visits to several wine joints.

On display was the ViniCasino, touted as the most innovative learning tool in wine, Learning wines with a casino ambience!

To further enhance the WFA brand footprint in Asia, the exhibitors can opt to go for a roadshow in Shanghai.
