Set to return this 16 to 27 May with a summer theme of “Behold the Beauty of Blends, Soak in the Spirits of Single Varietal”, the fifth edition of Wine & Whisky Week (WWW) will feature wineries and labels that are making their debut appearances exclusively at 1855 The Bottle Shop.

These include rising star in the Chilean wine industry Viña Vik; top iconic winery in Italy Duemani; the world’s first zero CO2 emissions farm Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio; highly anticipated Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare, and many more.

“Each edition, we’ve always tried to push the boundaries by bringing new and highly sought-after wines and spirits to Singapore. Apart from showcasing these exciting labels, our eagle-eyed procurment team at 1855 The Bottle Shop have specially sourced for limited quantities of mature 20-year old (1998) Bordeaux Grand Cru Classe wines for the upcoming edition. At 20 years old, these labels represent quintessential mature Bordeaux at its peak and are great value for money buys.,” says Managing Director Lim Jing Zhe.

When asked about its debut in Singapore, Matteo Graziani, Director of Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio said, “We are very excited to introduce our wines to the wine enthusiasts in Singapore. During WWW, we will be showcasing our newest labels which have never been launched in other countries in Asia. Available in limited quantities, these labels have been used by many celebrity chefs and served at Michelin-starred restaurants.”

Since its inception in 2016, every instalment of WWW has received overwhelming response from participants, who get to enjoy the unique experiences of wine tasting, education and shopping under one roof. WWW is the largest wine and whisky event in Singapore, featuring over 500 wine and spirits labels at attractive discounts, with over 100 labels for complimentary sampling and an eight-series Masterclass.

During the 12-day event, visitors can explore blends from Bordeaux, a region recognised as the home of masters who blend with the typical grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot. They can also discover a modern twist of winemaking as artistans include grape varietals like Sangiovese, Sagrantino, Syrah and Carmenere into a typical Bordeaux blend. Spirits such as single malt, grain and blended whiskies, sakes from boutique breweries and gin, etc will be available for tasting too.
