I think that's The Wine Gallery [No. 2 Chang Charn Road (Off Hoy Fatt Road)]. They have a great range. They are moving the warehouse so that store might end up moving to the East soon too.

Some of the banks have wine programmes too. Check your credit card promos or do a web search.
Wine Gallery is actually near to my office. I had also visited that place before... they have a outdoor facade with table and chairs to allow guest to enjoy wine outside. But somehow it does not catch on.. I am surprised to know that they are moving the warehouse!? when? anyone knows?

wolf blass yellow label is easy to drink and running offer at only about $25 at cold storage now!

the chardonnay, reisling and moscato is nice.

my bf thinks the merlot is not bad too!

Try Givry 2001 - Vin prefere du Roi Henri IV - a Bourgogne burgundy. It's extremely light, burgundies are superior in their lightness, hence the name.
And it doesn't have to say more, ( i.e. describe the bouquet, silkiness, fruitiness etc. as wine labels norm. do )
It's hardly expensive for a wine of such quality. At 16.45 Euros, it's less than S$50.
You might not find it but you can request Carrefour to order stocks -that way, people in Sg can enjoy this unknown brand. That's how one gets the best French wines in France - not surprisingly, through the grapevine.

The Wine Company in Dempsey Village is a bar/restaurant but they also sell good reasonably priced, and often hard to get wine (well within your budget) You can become a member and get 15% off take away prices!

I picked up some Vina Maipo (Chilean) at Fairprice Extra in AMK for $25, buy-1-get-1-free. Can't beat this price, and it's a good wine too.

Penfold's Rawson's Retreat is available at $20 at Carre4, they don't even have it listed as a "special price" though at Cold Storage they're selling it at $25 as a "special deal."

Wines in Singapore

Wines in Supermarket are fairly cheap, but they have no individuality. Only big brands pretending to come from small vineyards. They are not stored properly and many whites are "tired ". Try to find a local merchant or pm for tips. Cheers

There's a nice little shop in Holland Village shopping centre, 3rd floor, can't remember the name.

The great part is they do a wine tasting every Sat/Sun, all day long. Makes shopping with the wife quite a bit more pleasant when I can hang out drinking vino...
