The Irish Chamber of Commerce is delighted to organise a wine tasting evening, with Merchants at Duxton, on Wednesday June 17th. Guiding us through an evening of taste will be Jason Schwarz of Schwarz Wine Company.
Schwarz Wine Company’s aim is simple; to produce hand-crafted wines from Barossa Valley old vines and allow the finished product to speak of the ground and vintage from which it comes.
The small-batch, boutique wines are made by Jason Schwarz to express the characters of their variety, the Barossa, and its sub-regions. Jason’s wines are highly rated by eminent wine critics James Halliday and Lisa Perotti-Brown.
While there will be plenty of wine enjoyed, and people to meet, we will also hear the story behind the founding of Merchants in Singapore, and gain an insight to their interesting business model that has helped them grow from one, to three enterprises here in Singapore.
Pop the date in your diary – tickets on sale Wednesday 3rd, and limited availability.
