Wine For Asia (12th Nov 2005)


My wife and I went for the Wine-For-Asia at the Singapore Expo yesterday.
Fantastic range of different wineries and nationalities (ranging from the traditional France/Australian/Chilean to the new ones such as India and China). All the exhibitors (close to 50 over) were very nice and friendly, as well as generous with their wines for tasting purposes. The most impressive must be of cos the Bordeaux 2001 wine tasting by Wine Review. There was an excellent range of about 15 wines ranging from 2nd to 4th growth wines.


I bought a total of 6 bottles, three were Chilean and three being French St-Emillion Grand Cru, going for only S$20 ! I definitely hope this exhibition continues (started in 2003) and I will continue to be a strong supporter.

I was also very impressed with the Monkey Puzzle range of wines that Adam below representing www.le-raisin.com especially the Cabernet and the Pinot Nior. Do look out for his wines and I wish him all the success for the launch.

    Trockenberrenauslesce.... But it costs the same as that day at the Austrian wine appreciation night... When are we all going for another wine appreciation night?

    Didn't know you were such fanatical wine drinkers. No wonder Nora handed the entire bottle to you.

    Amazing - don't let the kids know that Mashimaro is an alcoholic!

    Yup.. i must agree with Leo. No wonder Mashimaro is what he is.. He's a marshmallow soaked in alcohol ;) If I'd known better, I'd given you some of our own house pours.. Some made by Kel's grandpa too! :)
