Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri World Tour 2024 : Singapore

The Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri World Tour 2024 opened its doors at the iconic CHIJMES Hall in Singapore on 23rd May 2024, marking its first Asian stop for this year's prestigious series. The Tre Bicchieri-themed event showcased and presented the crème de la crème of Italian wines from illustrious wine estates and wineries to the public, wine lovers, and trade visitors, each proudly bearing the esteemed ‘bicchieri’ or ‘wine glasses’ awards from the renowned Vini d’Italia guide, published annually by Gambero Rosso.

We were pretty amazed at the quality, finesse and structure by most of the wines on display and on taste-representation at Gambero Rosso, and having supported this show for the past 7 years, aside from the covid-gap, we have to say that the showcase just gets better and better each year.

His Excellency Dante Brandi, Ambassador of the Italian Republic, Italian Embassy in Singapore, graced the event's opening ceremony. Mr Luigi Salerno, CEO, Gambero Rosso,

and Mr Marco Sabellico, Wine Curator & Editor, Vini d'Italia guide, shared their welcome address with guests, visitors, and wine exhibitors at the opening ceremony.

Revered as the ‘Bible of Italian Wines’ by various wine fraternities globally, this guide awards the coveted Tre Bicchieri (three glasses) to only the finest wines, following an exhaustive and meticulous selection process from thousands of contenders. At the show, the presented wines hailed from various regions of Italy, representing a diverse selection of vineyards and wine estates. The featured regions include Campania, Friuli- Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Marche, Piemonte, Puglia, Sicilia, Umbria, and Veneto. Singapore holds significant importance for the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri World Tour 2024 for several reasons.

Strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Singapore serves as a critical gateway to the Asian market, making it an ideal location for showcasing Italian wines to a broad and diverse audience. As one of the world's leading financial and trade centres, Singapore attracts a high concentration of affluent consumers and influential buyers, including top sommeliers, wine importers, and restaurant owners. This crucial economic factor ensures a wide-reaching and impactful presence for Italian wines in the region.

Gambero Rosso, the most important multimedia brand in the Italian food and wine world,

celebrates its 37 years of activity. In 1986, Gambero Rosso took its first steps as an insert in a daily newspaper, but by the next year its first Guida dei Vini went to print, the 1988 edition. After that, dozens of guides and books followed. In 1999, Gambero Rosso Channel, the first thematic television channel in Europe, began broadcasting. Shortly after, a constellation of the Città del Gusto sites was founded in Italy, followed by Gambero Rosso Academy in the rest of the world, with cooking classes for professionals and amateurs, along with courses about wine, journalism master programs, and seminars on restaurant management.

Recently, the company was launched on the stock market. Meanwhile, a fascination with Italy has been growing in the world, a longing for its authentic products, and Gambero Rosso events organized around the globe have multiplied. Since the first ones in 1990, the number of events on our international calendar has grown to over 40. They are above all, but not only, dedicated to wine, supported by the translations of the guide Vini d’Italia. That volume is translated in German, English, Chinese and Japanese.
