Which Wines To Get For Your Special Occasion

Looking to get a good bottle or two for that romantic dinner with hubby or a birthday party?

Treasury Wine Estates (TWE), one of the world’s largest wine companies, has brought their portfolio of award-winning Napa Valley wines to Malaysia!

Napa Valley is known as the home of US premium wine. It’s only a few miles wide at its broadest point, and one-eighth the size of Bordeaux in France. Despite this, the region stands at the pinnacle of the wine world, commanding luxury prices on par with premium French and Italian wines.

Check out these tasting notes for help in picking the right wine for the occasion:
