Wine Guru at Anantara Phuket Resort & Spa Wins Thailand Sommelier of the Year
24 Sep 2009
Adding to an extremely impressive list of accolades over the past 4 years, Peetiwat Manapim, the resident Wine Guru at Anantara Phuket, has been prestigiously named as the Thailand Sommelier of the Year 2009.
Specialising as a wine guru trainer, as well as a proficient host of wine tasting and wine maker dinner events, Peetiwat's revered skills stem from an exemplary training record! Attendance at the Bordeaux Wine Master Class by the esteemed Stephen A. Mark was accompanied by a week's training at the Bordeaux Wine School in France. A broader wealth of international experience includes a winery tour in Italy, a wine educational trip to Austria and a professional visit to France encompassing the country's many famous wineries.
As a result of his dedication to the world of wine, Peetiwat has collected a worthy bank of honours and awards in recent years. He was named the Winner of the Wine Professional Challenge of Thailand in 2007, and in 2008 ranked in the top 20 Finalist of Thailand's Best Sommelier of The Year by Wine Today Magazine. He participated in both the London Vine Expo and the Hong Kong Asia Pacific Wine Fair in 2008. In 2009 he was selected as Thailand's representative for the Southeast Asia Sommelier competition - Wine for Asia- in Singapore, alongside representing Thailand in the Asia-Oceania Best Sommelier in Osaka, Japan.
From such a vastly admired platform of international expertise, this esteemed wine guru promises Anantara guests an elite level of skill and experience. In 2007 as Wine Sommelier for Full Moon at Anantara Koh Samui Resort & Spa, the restaurant won the Wine Spectator Award, illustrating Peetiwat's constant dedication to excellence. In his most recent undertaking as Wine Guru in The Tasting Room for Anantara Phuket, which opened in October 2008, the past year has seen Peetiwat impress a throng of astounded guests with his seemingly limitless repertoire of knowledge about wine and the wine making process. Cherishing each and every opportunity to advise guests as to the most suitable wine for their personal palette and menu choice, Peetiwat looks forward to furthering his worthy triumphs and to building on his significant success, for the even greater benefit of guests.
