The Straits Wine Company and DBS present the annual outdoor Singapore Wine Fiesta, which is open to the public, trade and press. The event aims to welcome over 10,000 visitors over four days of wine tastings, masterclasses and promotional events with over 70 visiting winemakers from every region of the globe. Some 300 wines will be available for tasting and also for sale, at special prices.

The event offers a one-stop shopping, tasting and educational experience for everyone who loves wine – from the newbie to the connoisseur. There is something here for every palate and budget.

To top off the experience, Singapore’s largest outdoor wine fair will be set amidst an unbeatable backdrop of Singapore’s rejuvenated city centre, at Clifford Square. Visitors can kick back and enjoy some choice tipples with a breathtaking view of the sea as well as the city skyline, including the iconic Marina Bay Sands building.

In addition, those who want to boost their knowledge of wine can sit and sip with wine experts and winemakers who will be conducting free masterclasses every 45 minutes. There will be 10 masterclasses a day by guest speakers, including renowned wine expert and founder of the German Wine Guide, Mr Joel Payne. The masterclasses will touch upon a wide variety of topics, ranging from the technicalities of viticulture to fun sessions which pair wines with local food. For example, find out what Singapore’s top sommeliers are raving about this year at the “Sommeliers’ Choice” masterclass and learn more about the grapes that go into their favourite wines; or take a tour of North America and South America at the “California to Mendoza” masterclass.

Winemakers’ Table Dinner – 23 October 2014
Mr Payne will also be present, together with key winemakers, at a very special wine pairing dinner on opening night where guests can sample 60 iconic wines. Some of these wines include CVNE Imperial Gran Reserva 2004 (Wine of the Year by Wine Spectator), Vietti Barolo Lazzarito 2010 (96 points by Antonio Galloni), Marques de Murrieta Castillo Y’gay Gran Riserva Especial 2005 (96 points by Wine Advocate), Jean Marc Brocard Chablis Domaine Ste Claire 1998 Magnum and Yarra Yering Dry Red Wine No.2 2007 (one of Australia’s most iconic winery).

To celebrate the debut of the Women’s Tennis Association Finals in Singapore, which happens in Singapore in the same week as Wine Fiesta, the wines will be accompanied by a bespoke tennis-inspired menu crafted by The Fullerton Bay Hotel.
