Wine Fair : Great World City 22 to 31 Dec 2006

Popped by Great World City yesterday to watch a movie and recalled that I saw in the adverts that there was going to be a wine fair organised by SOPEXA, focusing on French Wines. It was held at the basement outside of Cold Storage supermarket. Pretty small set up compared to what I am used to which is at Carrefour. At least the promoters were very friendly and kept on asking me and wife if we wanted to sample the wines.

There were a few that caught my eye which was the Chateau Manos which is a sweet wine style similar to Saturnes going for S$24, a Chateau Nenin and Alsace wines. Primarily the fair was intended and targetted for X'mas party goers, considering the focus on champagne and sparkling wines. If you are more interested in the French classified growths, you are better off at the Carrefour wine fairs or at the Oaks Cellar accessible by the travellator one floor below which has a nice cellar filled with First Growths and other cult wines such as Opus One.
The fair runs from 22 to 31 Dec 2006.
