What is it about? Singapore largest outdoor wine festival is back for its eighth edition this October, with the aim of making wine more accessible and as a platform to introduce new and interesting wines from around the world! In conjunction with #SG50, Singapore Wine Fiesta 2015 promises to bring Singapore food and music into this year’s wine fiesta. Yes, before you scream #simisaialsoSG50, the Fiesta has assembled a very impressive quartet of local Singaporean chefs, including Malcolm Lee (Candlenut), Bjorn Shen (Artichoke), Matthew Mok (The Rabbit Stash) and Cheryl Koh (Tarte by Cheryl Koh)!
What is happening at the Fiesta? Of course, the fiesta is all about Wine. With 350 labels to indulge in, and 82 winemakers on-site to meet-and-greet wine-lovers and beginners alike, you get to sample, learn and of course, buy some of your favourite wines home! Free wine master-classes will also be conducted (registration done during the fiesta), with winemakers discussing and sharing their knowledge of the world unknown to many, and even a master-class to showcase how different glassware brings out the best in wine! All these, plus the food booths of the four local chefs, with creations such as:
- Grilled Buah Keluak, and Caramelised Pork Cheeks by Malcolm Lee (Candlenut)
- Greek Honey Donuts, and Cherry Cheesecake Creamsicle by Bjorn Shen (Artichoke)
- Beef Cheek Rendang Burger, and Pandan Creme Brulee by Matthew Mok (The Rabbit Stash)
- Tarts, Vanilla Carolines and Dark Chocolate Chouquettes by Cheryl Koh (Tarte by Cheryl Koh)
