Fine pours for the oenophile

It’s time to raise a glass and start shopping: Vinomofo, Aussie wine e-destination is uncorking in Singapore right in time for year-end, festive feasts. Making Singapore its first stop in Asian, what started as a passion project in an Adelaide garage for grape-hunting duo Andre Eikmeier and Justin Dry has now grown into a trailblazing company with 500,000-strong members. And this swift rise is of no surprise — with handpicked wines ranging from luminary reds to handcrafted indie rosés that go as keenly priced as $20, wine lovers are pulling out their credit cards faster than you can say “Chardonnay”.


Sourced from wineries in Australia, France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and Argentina, a range of more than 40 labels are available for the curious drinkers. All dispatches are climate-controlled to ensure the wines arrive in prime condition. To receive same-day deliveries, simply place your order before 2pm. The best part? Members can also look forward to secret black market deals that proffer even lower prices.


“We’ve been blown away by the impact Vinomofo has on wine lovers in Australia and New Zealand over the last five years, and we’re so excited to be launching in Singapore, our first step into Asia as part of our global expansion,” said Andre Eikmeier, co-founder and CEO of Vinofomofo. “Singapore’s food culture is amazing. You can find the tastiest hawker fare at really reasonable prices — just look at the 2016 Michelin Guide for Singapore! That’s what Vinomofo is about, we want everyone to be able to experience good wine, and not have to pay a fortune for it.”
