It’s that time of the year again where wine lovers rejoice! The Wine Fiesta is back and all we are tasting and seeing are Babich wines and Plumm glasses. Presented by The Straits Wine Company for the ninth year running, it is Singapore’s largest annual outdoor wine festival.
– Gail & Jem
Held from 20 to 23 October 2016 at Clifford Square (beside Fullerton Bay Hotel), the mega tentage is set against the majestic Singapore skyline. Indulge in over 350 wine labels and immerse amongst the knowledge and expertise of over 70 global winemakers who will be present at this event.

Singapore restaurants and chefs (such as Chef Michael Lewis from Tin Hill Social, Chef Rishi Naleendra from Cheek by Jowl and Chef Ah Boy from Good Chance Popiah) come together to create a one-off Farm-to-Table menu that uses local Singapore produce. The food is to be paired with natural and sustainable wines which are gaining traction worldwide but are still relatively inaccessible in South East Asia.
Featured wines are priced between $72 to $120 per bottle.
Five rising stars of the wine industry will be featured: BK Wines, Commune of Buttons, Ochota Barrels, Domaine Lucy Margaux and Domain Le Roc des Anges. These wines are natural, organic and biodynamic.
