Did you know that the wine list at the Nai Harn Resort in Phuket was created by renown wine expert James Suckling?
This same wine expert recently delighted Bangkok’s most ardent oenophiles at the Great Wines of Italy in Bangkok event, which was held in December at the ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok hotel. The event brought some of Italy’s best winemakers and wines to the city.
However, for those who might have missed this special occasion you can still treat yourself to a James Suckling curated wine selection at the Nai Harn Resort in Phuket. This recently reopened resort is one of Phuket’s premier luxury beach destinations, and is located on the south end of the island. In addition to unbeatable views of the Andaman Sea, as well as 130 luxurious guest rooms, the resort’s entire wine list was specially chosen by the globally renowned wine critic—applicable in all outlets of the resort, including in-room dining. He also created a special feature called James’ Rockstar Wines By The Glass where expensive wines are served by the glass (making them more affordable to try since you needn’t buy the whole bottle).
“I love the Nai Harn! It’s such a great place to hangout in Phuket, and a close friend is the manager,” Suckling remarked when asked about his involvement in the project. “I put together a list of 80 or so wines that are really fun and flavorful and they are right for different occasions from hanging at the beach or pool to dining at the hotel restaurant. All the wines, of course, have 90 points or more ratings. We also have top wines by the glass, from a 2010 Pio Cesare Barolo to a 2004 Montrose.”
Note: If you missed the Great Wines of Italy event, the Great Wines of Andes—featuring top producers from Chile and Argentine wine—will becoming to the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok on May 10th.
