Looking for a bottle of bubbly for an office party, or perhaps to give as a gift for a friend or colleague? Here are 8 wine stores in the CBD that’ll do just the job!

Did you know that Singapore’s business district is home to some of the best wine shops in the country? While wine deliveries are easily accessible and definitely more prevalent today, nothing can compare to the experience of personally choosing your bottle of wine in a store and getting valuable advice from the wine connoisseurs themselves.

Here are 8 wine stores in the CBD to get the ideal bottle of wine.

 

Bottles & Bottles — Literally Bottles and Bottles

Quite literally, Bottles & Bottles is filled with exactly what it sounds like—bottles upon bottles of wine. With shelves stacked to the brim that makes for the perfect backdrop, there’s no way you’re walking out of there without a bottle in hand and a picture for your Instagram story.

This homegrown wine and spirits retailer boasts an extensive selection of international wines that are suited to the Singaporean’s taste.

In addition to that, they are also one of the very few retailers of the Armand De Brignac Brut Gold, which has full-bodied tasting notes with fresh and light floral tones. But if you’re looking for something that may feel lighter on the mouth, they also have a selection of Riesling wine that might suit your taste better.

Bottles & Bottles, 1 Raffles Place, #01-13. Islandwide delivery is available.

Regular Opening Hours:

Monday – Friday: 11:00am – 8:00pm

Wine Connection is not an unfamiliar name in the game. With over 20 stores nationwide, including their Collyer Quay branch, they have grown to become the go-to wine store for many Singaporeans.

Despite being friendly on the wallet, the quality of their wine certainly doesn’t falter. Most of their bestsellers come from Italy and France, including the Fat Bastard Pinot Noir and the La Gironda Moscato d’Asti.

This gives everyone a chance to indulge in the different hints of flavour that you can only get from a glass of wine, regardless of their budget.

There’s no doubt that wine retailers all over Singapore know everything there is to know about the craft. But how often do you go to a place that is helmed by Gerald Lu, two-time National Sommelier Champion and current President of the Sommelier Association of Singapore?

With casual bar seating and bird cages as lamps, the retro-like ambience of Praelum Wine Bistro will greet you even before you step in. Splashes of red on the walls and chairs make the setting less intimidating, especially if you’re going in with the knowledge that wine masters run this place.

Since the people behind Praelum are absolute masters, ditch the wine menu and ask for a personal recommendation instead.

Praelum Wine Bistro, 4 Duxton Hill. Dine-in & delivery are available.

Some of the Bistro’s best offerings include a delightful wine tasting journey, which flaunts a wide variety of vinos from all over the world. On your visit, don’t forget to have a taste of their wines that are directly imported from the vineyards including their wide range of French burgundies.

Le Rouge SG — French Wine Galore

To end off our list with a bang, we have a charming wine boutique, Le Rouge. Founders Christophe Bidou and Diorra Mai wanted to make French wines easily accessible in Singapore, which was why Le Rouge was born.

Their brand philosophy believes that wine isn’t just drinking, but also exploring and discovering new cultures with every sip.

Be sure to try the Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve, which has heaps of fruity undertones; or the Amiral De Beychevelle Saint Julie if notes of oak are more to your liking.

Le Rouge isn’t just for wine connoisseurs, but it is also made for sweet tooths alike. Take a bite of their decadent praline chocolate range filled with a variety of liquors that will ooze out from one single bite.
