Carrefour is holding a Warehouse Wine Sale 25-31 July 2011 at Plaza Singaura Atrium. They have changed the name to Warehouse Sale, but effectively it is still a Wine Fair. Good to stock up wines for National Day 2011 with the POSB Everyday card discount of 10%. Happy shopping!

Wine News : Giant Sale - Tall Horse wines
Giant is having another promotion on their wines. The truth is that I have never tasted Tall Horse wines. But it being South African, I think it is worth a try, though I wouldn't put too much hope except for expecting a fruity uncomplicated wine.
The attraction is probably the 4 glasses of Riedel Ouverture Red Glasses FREE when you buy 24 bottles of wine. (i.e. 2 cases). So if you are a big quaffer, then the deal is pretty interesting. It does seem to be an overkill though.

Wine News : Expensive drop as forklift shatters $1.3m worth of wine
An Australian winemaker said Friday he was "numb" after a malfunctioning forklift destroyed more than Aus$1 million (S$1.3 million) of his prized shiraz.
Commentary : Ouch! It must really hurt, especially all the hard work and time involved to cultivate and harvest the wines. Thankfully everything was insured. Wonder how they value the wine? Price in USA where it was intended to be sold or Price in Australia where it was made?
