Robert Parker Wine Advocate launches wine lifestyle app in Singapore


Wine authority Robert Parker Wine Advocate has launched RP Benefits, a special membership programme that’s focused around exclusive wine and dine experiences at restaurants and bars across town via a mobile app.

If you’re the kind of wine snob who consistently turn your nose up at wine lists offered at restaurants, Robert Parker Wine Advocate has just launched a new mobile app and rewards programme that will allow you to bring that prized Domaine de la Romanée-Conti along for your meal at no corkage charge or at a discounted rate when you dine at over 60 restaurants in Singapore.

First launched in Singapore, RP Benefits, available on both iOS and Android, is the wine guide’s first-ever lifestyle membership offering that provides food enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs exclusive access to unique wine and dine experiences at restaurants and bars across Singapore, including Michelin-starred and Michelin-listed establishments. Venues include the likes of Salt Grill & Sky Bar, Hashida Sushi, Stellar at 1-Altitude, Terra by Seita, Lewin Terrace, VLV Singapore, The Corner House, and Zafferano Italian Restaurant & Lounge (all of which already have extensive, well-curated wine lists, but may not be as impressive as your wine cellar with your Chateau Lafite Rothschilds, vintage Dom Perignons and Penfolds Granges).

Talk about elevating the BYOB experience.

Members also get benefits such as complimentary wine tasting experiences at leading wine merchants and wineries, up to 20 per cent discount at renowned restaurants, as well as complimentary wine pairings at Alma by Juan Amador and La Terre. Other privileges include menu upgrades, a complimentary glass of wine or sake, a kitchen tour, or even a drink with the chef at the kitchen.

To enjoy RP Benefits, visit RobertParker.com to sign up for a personal subscription at the price of US$99/year, after which you can sign in to the RP Benefits mobile application via iOS and Android devices.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate will be extending RP Benefits to other markets in the near future.
