Celebrating one year since the launch in Thailand: Tenuta Viglione’s wine dinner at Chim by Siam Wisdom

It’s been a year since Tenuta Viglione successfully launched its wines in Thailand and this anniversary was superbly celebrated with a sumptuous event at one of Bangkok’s most iconic restaurants: the award-winning Chim by Siam Wisdom. A 9-course menu conceived and executed by the seven-time Micheline starred chef Noom and a tasting of 5 wines produced from native Apulian grapes sealed the encounter between the flavors and aromas of the great Thai culinary tradition and those of organically produced Apulian wine from Tenuta Viglione.

Interview with Ruenruedee Prachayaphruet, SEA Marketing Director for Tenuta Viglione


Thailand has an emerging wine sector. How did you approach this rather sophisticated market?

The Thai market is increasingly attentive to the quality and the story behind each bottle. Our philosophy is based on respect for the environment and the use of native varieties that best suit our terroir. This allows us to produce authentic, high-quality wine that best represents our region and its thousand-year history. We aim to bring the best that Puglia has to offer Thailand. Our wine is suitable for even the most sophisticated taste buds.

Many people associate Puglia with cheap wine. How do you respond to this perception? 

Puglia produces a very wide range of high-quality products. As with everything, there are different levels of quality and that includes wine. I must say that there isn’t only cheap wine from Puglia, but also cheap wine from France, Australia, or any other country. We focus on superior wine and in Puglia, you are spoiled for choice.

Which kinds of wine are you focusing on for the Thai market?

We are focusing on our most prestigious and complex ones, those that tell the history and age-old traditions of our region. We presented Thai consumers with Primitivo, Verdeca, Nero di Troia, and Susumaniello. These are just some of the gems that we’ve shared, chosen not only for their excellent quality but also for being among local favourites.

Where does Puglia want to go in the international wine scene? Should we expect the emergence of the “Super Pugliesi”?

Puglia has all the ingredients to become a point of reference in the world of wine. The combination of tradition, innovation and sustainability will allow us to create unique and very high-quality wine. The future of the “Super Pugliesi” is promising and we are ready to be the protagonists in this new era of wine. We will see what the market has to say in the years to come and we are confident in our potential.
