Bangkok’s Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, A Luxury Collection Hotel has another feather on its cap with its famous Italian restaurant, Rossini’s, receiving the recently announced prestigious international “Wine Spectator Award of Excellence”. A globally accepted award as one of the most distinguished accolades within the hospitality industry, it is not often that a country still maturing in the local wine culture gets this prestigious honour. It is indeed a significant achievement for Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit.
The award honors Rossini’s for having one of the most “outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world. Rossini’s success is attributed to the introduction in May 2012 of “primoVino by Rossini’s”, a unique concept that allows lovers of fine wines and gourmet Italian cuisine to discover “The art of experiencing top shelf wines at cellar prices.”
Thanks to an exclusive partnership between Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit and Bangkok’s four leading wine merchants, BB&B, G Four Wines, Italasia Group and Wine Gallery, diners at Rossini’s enjoy an extensive selection of exceptional wines at unbeatable prices, and each carefully chosen to complement the highly accomplished modern Italian cuisine of gifted Chef Paride Noviello.
Diners at Rossini’s also benefit from the personal service and suggestions of a knowledgeable sommelier to ensure the perfect food and wine pairings. “primoVino by Rossini’s” award-winning wine list includes highly regarded labels from Australia, France, Italy, South Africa, Chile, Argentina and New Zealand. Wine lovers can enjoy New Zealand Framingham Sauvignon Blanc and Sileni Pinot Noir Cellar Selection, Penfolds, Italian Barolo Massolino and Super Tuscans such as Antinori Tignanello and Tenuta dell’ Onellaia, as well as new vintage releases and selected wines from renowned wineries.
