For the afternoon’s main event, Mr. PK Chua, a sommelier from Fine Wines Singapore, spoke about various types of French wines.

Four wines were chosen for the activity and Mr. Chua guided the guests through the flavor profiles and nuances of each variety. The session was also an opportunity to learn how to swirl, sniff, and sip wine like a professional.

Ending the session on a fun note was a lucky draw, where attendees had to correctly guess the type of wine they tasted. Four winners were selected and made their way home with a bottle of fine wine each.

With the sommelier’s professional guidance during the activity, guests managed to dive deep into the world of wines. At the same time, it was an enjoyable afternoon that further strengthened the relationship between BOC PB and its valued clientele.
