This is not your usual wine dinner where you are seated at a table being served with food and wine that were paired for you. This year’s setup for the Pirramimma Wine Dinner let its guests do the food and wine pairing according to their tastes and preferences. What’s more, the sumptuous buffet was prepared by Chef Robert Davis of the New World Hotel and, of course, unlimited award-winning Pirramimma wines served by the winemaker himself, Mark Conroy.
Conroy manages the Sales, Marketing and Winemaking in Pirramimma. He blended and developed the War Horse, Ironstone, Grey Nomad, Eight Carat, Gilded Lilly, ACJ, Black Label Vineyard Select, Heritage Edition, Lions Gate, and Wattle Park brands of the Pirramimma.
Pirramimma was named the Australian Producer of the Year at the prestigious AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge 2015. Pirramimma, with a total of 19 wine entries, won 10 gold medals and nine silver medals from the 11,611 wine entries from 1,708 producers, achieving a 100% medal sweep.
In this year’s most illustrious wine event in Southeast Asia, the 16th Grand Wine Experience that will be held at the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel, Resorts World Manila on November 4, Philippine Wine Merchants (PWM) will be featuring over 500 of the world’s most notable wines, including the award-winning Pirramimma wines. Also, Conroy will be there to present the Pirramimma brands.
