Whether you like a fruity sauvignon blanc or a zippy pinot noir, you can have your favourite wines delivered straight to your door in Singapore. Here are our picks of the best wine delivery websites on the island – from high-end wines to affordable blends! (Many offer free delivery with a minimum spend, too!)
TTG Wines (Through the Grapevine) has been supplying some of Singapore’s best restaurants with top-quality wines – the stuff you won’t usually find on supermarket shelves – since 2016. And you can also get their amazing selection of wines delivered to your doorstep when you shop on the website!
Supporting small vineyards and wineries lies at the heart of TTG, with the entire range coming from family-run vineyards. They also know each and every one of their producers, most of whom have been with them since the beginning. They personally select them for quality wines that are produced in harmony with nature. Naturally, all the wines are organic or sustainable.
The wines are taken from a temperature controlled cellar and delivered to you, cutting out the middleman and making their wines affordable. Try the value mixed case for $156 (which works out to $26 per bottle) to explore a range of their best-selling wines from boutique vineyards.
Don’t miss: There’s free delivery for orders of six bottles or more, otherwise it’s $15.
Once Upon a Vine
This online shop has a fabulous range of organic and biodynamic artisan wines sourced from small-production wineries. These wineries use healthy farming practices, including organic grapes with limited or zero chemicals in the cellar.
You’ll find everything from organic reds, whites, rosés and orange wines (made from white grapes vinified like a red wine), to champagne-style and dessert wines. And they’re all made with lesser-known grapes to create more unusual wine styles.
Some of the most popular rare grape varieties featured are Tintilia of Molise, Arneis of Piedmont and Nerello Mascalese, which thrives on the volcanic soil of Mount Etna in Sicily.
Another exciting style is an English sparkling wine from highly-awarded Sussex winery Ridgeview, loved by the late Queen Elizabeth II.
It’s clear these guys are serious about their vino – and passionate about telling the stories behind each wine. On the site you’ll find detailed info about every bottle sold – including grape variety, region and winery. Plus, you won’t have to worry about the state of your orders as the wines are transported and stored in temperature-controlled conditions, with refrigerated vessels and cold warehouse storage.
Don’t miss: Alcohol delivery is free for orders above $150 online, otherwise it’s $15. Items are delivered one to three days after payment is received.
Wine to Share
Wine to Share specialises in bringing the best of South Africa’s Western Cape wines to Singapore.
