Wine Fiesta, Singapore’s largest annual outdoor wine festival, is back again for its 2016 edition. Presented by regional wine importer and distributor The Straits Wine Company for the ninth year running, Wine Fiesta 2016 will take place from 21 to 23 October at Clifford Square (besides the Fullerton Bay Hotel) and will showcase over 350 wine labels from 70 winemakers from around the world to delight wine enthusiasts of any level.
This year’s theme is ‘Rising Roots’, a tribute to the growing trend of natural sustainable and artisanal winemaking. Of particular interest would be wines from Basket Range, a burgeoning community in the field of organic wine set in Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Wine Fiesta 2016 will see four of the winemakers from the area – Lucy Margaux, Ochota Barrels, BK Wines and Commune of Buttons – attend the event for the first time.
As was with last year Wine Fiesta 2016 will again see a spread of gastronomic delights, this time from seven renown Singapore-based chefs – from Tin Hill Social, Morsels, Cheek by Jowl, Tamarind Hill, Meatsmith, Burnt Ends, and Good Chance Popiah – each presenting three original dishes created specially for the event.
Tickets for Wine Fiesta 2016 are $50 per ticket and can be purchased here.
