As we come up to the Christmas festive season, retailers are pushing out extremely attractive promotions to capture that festive dollar. Even online retailers are getting into the act – online wine retailer eWineGallery.com – which launched in July this year and offers a wide range of premium wines that consumers can buy and have shipped directly to their doorsteps, is throwing a wine tasting fair that will showcase over 80 labels of fine wines from over 20 world-class wineries. These premium wines from Europe, South America and Australia, amongst other countries, will be available for purchase at wholesale prices between S$19 and S$250.
To celebrate the festive season eWineGallery.com will also be putting together special wine bundles such as a Christmas 6-Bottles Bundle – six individual wines packaged into a set – as one of the main highlights on eWineGallery.com.
“We are excited to share the spirit of gifting this festive season with our customers and guests. Our inaugural Summer Wine Fair held in July was a huge success and it attracted over 200 attendees. We decided to celebrate the festive season with a Christmas Wine Fair by eWineGallery.com, featuring a larger variety of wines from numerous renowned wineries this time round to cater to our increasingly discerning customers who appreciate fine wines from around the world,” said Gavin Mui, Managing Director of Magnum Spirits & Wine, which owns and runs eWineGallery.com.
The wine tasting event will be held at eWineGallery.com warehouse at 32 Kallang Place, and is open to members of the public from 12noon to 6pm on Saturday, 22 November 2014. Admission is free.
