9 ways to get your wine fix in Singapore without leaving the house

‘Tis almost the season to be jolly and drink wine with all your buddies and maybe some family members. But if you’re feeling a little lazy to head out and stock up on some great bottles, and just want to make the most of this sweater weather (we won’t blame you since Singapore is sunny and hot for the most part of the year), fret not. These apps and websites not only have a decent catalog of wines, but you’ll be able to get them delivered to you. Here are nine to check out.


Sourcing their wines from family-owned boutique wineries that they’ve visited themselves, BottlesXO brings you a wide selection of European vino within 60 minutes—kept at the perfect temperature for immediate serving. The best part? There’s no minimum order or delivery fee. Also, if your make your orders between Dec 1-25, you’ll get a tag with a QR code attached to your bag, which you can scan to win prizes like a wine essentials kit, an invitation to a private wine tasting event and more. The season, try the Ca’ di Alte Prosecco ($32), a sparkling wine from Italy, the Franz Keller Pinot Sekt Brut 2012, a sparkling German winzersekt (spakling) rose… but don’t limit yourself to just two bottles.


Food panda does way more than just delivering your favorite nosh to your home. No, now you can get alcohol from the same guys who get your favorite nosh in times of need. Choose from a whole bunch of restaurants like C&C Drinks CompanyThe Liquor Shop, and a few others across the city. And if it’s your first time, you’ll get 10% off your bill. They also have more offers and coupons you can use here.


Why not get some groceries while you’re shopping for wine? Some cheese and crackers would go great with a bottle of Italian Nero D’ Avola ($29.90), Divoto Apollonio ($55) or perhaps Grappa Bianca ($45.80), while your guests wait for dinner to be prepared, no? Well, they have a wide selection of bottles to choose from, including the ones from their partnering merchants, Wine ConnectionWein and Vin and others. Also, when you spend $100 in a single purchase during this festive period, you stand a chance to win a trip for two (worth over $5000) to Niseko, Japan.

Nuevo Vino

This nifty website is more for mood-based drinkers rather than semi-experts. While you can select bottles by wine type, there are also options for the type of occasion (just for a quiet night? Or a night with the boys?), as well as primary tasting notes like cocoa, spice, wood, tropical and floral. Their selection is more affordable than Wanderwine, though still serious, including a large range of French, Spanish and Italian wines starting at $24 for a bottle of Amatista Frizzante Moscato, and also has an interesting selection of Turkish, Greek and Lithuanian spirits like raki, ouzo and vodka. Best part: they deliver free, and there’s no minimum order.


Of course you’ll need wine glasses, right? If you wanna swank it up a little and get new ones for this year’s holiday sesaon, Redmart’s offering 50% off on wine glasses as part of their Christmas promotions. They’re also offering discounts on selected wines and champanges like the Mumm Brut champagne ($59). You can score yourself discounts where if you buy two of the same wine, for example, two bottles of Wolf Blass Red Label Pink Moscato cost you $38.90 as opposed to the usual $49 for both.


Australian wine delivery app Vinomofo is joining the league of wine delivery apps and services by offering red, white and sparkling wines from Australia, France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and Argentina. The members-only wine site reduces prices of wine by working with winemakers directly, thereby reducing the expenses needed for a middleman (think $55 wines going for $25!). Their selection keeps changing from time to time so you won’t be browsing through the same old collection all the time. Just order before 2pm so you’ll get your wine on the same day. However, you’ll have to wait till Dec 6 before you can have a gander on the site.


The wines here are handpicked by local sommeliers like Gerald Lu, Singapore’s Sommelier 2010; Fazil Mohammad, World Gourmet Summit Sommelier of the Year 2015; and Stephanie Rigourd, a specialist in boutique wineries. The cellar categorizes wines by type, country, grape varietal and price, but also has handy tasting notes and food pairing recommendations. Expect an ever-changing list of bottles (from $31) like Two Hands Bella’s Garden Shiraz 2012 ($89) and Cava Brut Reserva Agusti Torello Mata ($45), an elegant Spanish bubbly. Shipping is free for orders over $75 and they get it out to you within 24 hours.

Wine Connection

Popular go-to place for many people who’re out for a fun, fuss-free time, Wine Connection is now plaing their best-selling wines for sale, such as the extra dry prosecco Il Cortigiano ($27), Overstone Sauvignon Blanc ($35), Intis Merlot / Malbec ($25) and others, at a discounted prices. Their collection includes old world wines from Italy and France, as well as newer ones from Australia. Sign up as a member and enjoy 10% off your purchases and other regular discounts on some of their selections.


Winesonline would be the ideal place to get your wines from if you are planning to buy them in bulk for your upcoming house party as they provide free delivery on orders above $200 and a 5% discount if you buy 12 bottles. Their bestsellers include the Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva ($60) from Spain, Ostler Caroline’s Pinot Noir ($78), along with other wines from Australia, New Zealand, France and the United States.
