Singapore's largest outdoor wine festival is celebrating a decade of fine wine-ing! Presenting new additions to the festivities with The Best Of Wine Fiesta 2017, there's over 300 wines to savour with global winemakers, paired with gourmet spreads.

Forget about intimidating, formal settings with conventional Western cuisine. The bay area with a beautiful view of the Singapore skyline will be convivial and casual, because enjoying wine should be fun and the most pleasurable of pursuits. That’s what Wine Fiesta is all about.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

INTERNATIONAL FOOD AND WINE PAIRINGS

Six renowned chefs based in Singapore, Andrew Baldus from Meat Smith, Felix Chong from Monti, William Campbell from Tin Hill Social, Petrina Loh from Morsels, Oliver Hyde from Maggie Joan's, and Kilo will each be presenting original dishes specially created for Wine Fiesta. This extraordinary selection of gastronomic delights will be paired with international wines. 

 
 

 

Wine Circles by RedMart

And as Wine Fiesta's official partner, Redmart also brings ‘wine circles’. An aselect group of winemakers will be at hand to share theirstories and their philosophy for their art. So grab a crate to sit, enjoy their wines, and listen to their amusing and heart-warming tales. The Wine Circle will be conducted throughout the Fiesta and topics covered include different wine varieties, Champagnes and bubbles, and styles from various regions and countries.

We also welcome Dan Sims, sommelier, wine commentator, educator, promoter and self-proclaimed professional wino. Starting out in the wine industry at revered Melbourne establishments such as Taxi Dining Room, Fifteen and Punch Lane, Dan has moved into supporting various wine education programmes, winning several awards and accolades, and even winemaking. He’ll be bringing the famous Australian Pinot Palooza event for the first time to Singapore in November, and Straits Wines is excited to be incorporating his exciting personality and contagious enthusiasm about Pinot Noirs into our Wine Circles.

 
 
 

AFTER HOURS WINE PARTY

The fun part? In its 10th year, Wine Fiesta will also be hosting after hours wine parties after each day's tastings. There'll be wines for purchase by the bottle and glass, and food available from the participating chefs accompanied by music curated by Kilo Lounge.
