Boatrace, did you ever find a TV rental place here in Singapore or did you finally just opt to buy one. The only ones I ever found were high daily rental for commercial applications/events.

Just bought in the end ... although burning $1000+ on TVs which will have no real sell on value in two years did annoy me!

Thank you very much! I will go check them out. A friend told me he got each bottle at $78.

From Google Maps it faces onto Orchard Road, though it looks like the entrance is from inside. It's the unit to the left of 7-11.
There's a sign in the window 'Taste more than 35 wines [from?] $8 a glass'
It's not on Hungrygowhere, but I found some pix here... https://foursquare.com/v/5-oz-wine-bist ... 9f2/photos It's smarter looking than the address suggests.
Definitely worth a go next time I'm downtown!


For $8 a pop, this will be the wine version of Thirsty (beer place in Liang Court). Definitely must plan a visit there.

It looks like this has been replaced by a pub - The Drunken Poet.
:(
Oh, well.

Any advice or recommendations for someone who's new to drinking wine?

Not too acidic or strong would be great. Typically more comfortable with whites than reds. Have never taken the time to find out more about the different types of wine.

Thanks!

I just found out 2 websites that made the best prices for wines!
For australian wines, you have http://www.vinomofo.com, but they only sell by case.
For High quality French Wines, I found http://www.wineandchill.sg that sell premium wines for the best prices in SG I believe, and they do same day delivery

I agree that http://www.wineandchill.sg is probably the best in SG for really good French wines. Really enjoyed the delivery and the wines themselves.

Also, found an interesting site the other day - https://wineronda.com.sg/. It is about natural wines from a highland winemaking region in the southern Spain. I purchased twice from them and had a discount code for 15% off which I have not used (I am not in SG now). PM me if you want me to share it.
