🍷It’s no secret that buying wine online in Singapore can be a bit of a minefield, especially if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for.
This is ever truer for those of you who’ve been to certain European countries where the price of wine is practically cheaper than water. No jokes.
This often makes the price of wine in Singapore seem absolutely out of this world.
Same as everything now, you will find best deals online. With products very different from the local supermarket. Add the free delivery and a good service, and you will save money and continue to drink good wine. Which is sometimes really difficult here, especially in the bars who serves « ice wine » ❄️
You know what I mean, I’m sure 😏
🍾The absolute best tip I can give you is to shop around and remember that some of the best wines in the world come from small, single vineyard wineries, as opposed to the major mass-produced companies that simply churn out barrel after barrel of mediocre reds, whites and roses.
Still, the sheer number of online wine shops in the country can often make choosing a wine shop a bit of a difficult experience. And, if you’re not a very well-cultured connoisseur, then buying wine online can even be a little bit dangerous, especially since don’t really know what you’re looking for.
Therefore, I put together this list of one of my 5 favourite online e-commerce wine shops in Singapore.
Raise your empty glass, there is plenty of good deals just for you 🥂

Wines Online: Serving Singapore Since 2003
Initially operating as The Wine Route Online, Wines Online was established in 2003 and has been a leading name in the e-commerce world of wine ever since.
And, just to give you a better idea of their prominence, in May of 2008, Wines Online was included in Simply Her magazine’s list of the 45 best online wine shops, which has since placed them in the spotlight of the online wine trade.
According to the company’s website, the idea for Wines Online came when they realized that Singapore’s actual wine shops only had very limited shelf space and were only able to offer a limited number of bottles and labels to their customers.
Therefore, Wines Online felt that it was necessary to launch their online wine portal to offer excellent product curation, proper customer service, as well as a dedicated delivery team to bring the finest wines to Singaporeans from anywhere in the country.
When you take their excellent wine selection, combined with their team’s commitment to serve their customers, it’s easy to see why Wines Online has become one of the leading online wine shops in the country.
Furthermore, they get consistent 5-star reviews on platforms such as Google, Facebook, Wine Searcher and Lazada.
Regardless, Wines Online has truly worked hard to build their success by cultivating relationships and building trust with their customers. 👏

Pop Up Wine – Singapore’s favourite wine store
With more than 200 different award-wining wines in their online shop, it’s no surprise that Pop Up Wine made our list of the best places to buy wine online in Singapore.
Pop Up Wine sells fine wines starting as low as $27 and offers exceptional same-day delivery.
Each and every bottle of wine featured in Pop Up Wine’s online shop is hand-picked by the store’s Australian owners, David and Isadora, who now reside in Singapore. The idea for the online store was born from the duo’s love of wine, as well as the seemingly impossible task of finding a good bottle of wine in Singapore at a reasonable price.
Aghast at the price of wine in the country, David and Isadore initially started out by supplying friends and family with affordable wines, which turned into supplying friends of friends and family, and eventually, supplying the entire country.
The duo’s association to the world of wine started way back in 1849, when David’s great grandfather, known affectionately as ‘Ol Man Freebairn, left Scotland to make his way to Southern Australia. There, upon his arrival, he started planting grape vines in what would later go on to become one of Australia’s first and finest vineyards.
On the other hand, Isadora’s affinity for wine started when her Grandpa Ted purchased a working vineyard to house his herd of more than 1,000 prize-winning merino sheep. This was near the wine region of New Norcia in Western Australia, where the entire region is planted with award-winning grape vines planted by the hands of Italian-born Benedictine monks.
Buy a wine cellar to keep your wine at temperature, Singapore is Humid
Since Singapore has a rather hot and humid climate year-round, it’s important to keep your wine tasting its best by making sure it’s stored at the optimal temperature. Keep in mind that it’s best to store wine at a similar temperature and humidity level that would be found within an actual wine cellar.
For this, many people today are turning to using a wine chiller, which offers you the space needed to store your wine, as well as ensuring that it’s kept at the optimal temperature for proper storage.
Finally, if you’re a newcomer to the wine game, or you simply need a bit of help learning about wine and what types of wine to look for, you will find many places here to buy a wine rack. There is many good deals online, second hand if you are on a budget.
Remember that good wines aren’t cheap. Therefore, it would be a shame to have them stored at the wrong temperature, which can drastically affect their taste.
Now you can order the wine that you need. Bonne Dégustation 🇫🇷
