Walkabout Wine Hall to elevate your wine-buying experience
This takes place on 3 July across the hotel’s Harbour View Suites and Garden Suites. For one day only, visitors can expect an exciting and rewarding wine experience set against the Singapore harbour and city skyline. Look forward to fresh new vintages as well as exclusive bottles to taste and shop from – all in one venue.
Expect to taste from iconic wineries such as Gramona (a family-owned winery operating over five generations from Spain; Gusbourne (a prestigious UK winery who produces vintage wines); Cave Yves Cuilleron (it has been producing wines since 1920 from France); and many more. You’ll also get the chance to get up close with winery representatives and learn firsthand from seasoned wine experts.
Access to the Wine Hall is priced at $55. The first 200 sign-ups get to bring home a unique “Wines of the World” wine glass. One lucky person will stand to win a 35-bottle Vintec wine cabinet through the lucky draw.*
