The event was well attended by members of Ipoh’s International Wine and Food Society (IWFS) who made up 50 per cent of the over 120 wine tasting guests.

According to Ipoh IWFS Vice President and Cellar Master, Lee Nyit Fee, a wine tasting event is the perfect opportunity to try out new wines in the market without having to purchase a full bottle.

Good wine is subjective per individual taste and a wine tasting event enables the connoisseur to taste the product and engage the winemaker personally to enquire on how its wine was produced including queries on the type of grapes used.
