LATEST: We are adding our evaluation of wine at various wine events that were attended.

These series of wine tastings are by an independent panel of wine lovers - both professionals & serious consumers. The first aim is to "discover" QUALITY new arrivals in Singapore. We hope that this will help wine consumers in their selection of wines for their enjoyment. In addition, we also hope that Singapore Restauranteurs will use these Tastings to make preliminary selection of wines for their changing winelists. Retail prices & where to buy information, besides HappyVines.com, will be quoted for the benefit of both consumers & professionals.
In addition, we seek to engage in comparative BLIND tastings, under various categories, to highlight quality wines within these categories. This is a competitive tasting & will be conducted BLIND until the TOP wines have been selected.
At this time, only ONE session will be organised, on the 3rd Thursday of each month, at various hosting venues. All wine samples should be confirmed one week before each session.
ALL wine distributors for Singapore are cordially invited to participate to showcase their wines to an independent LOCAL panel & have the results published, via e-mail newsletter & website, WITHIN DAYS OF THE TASTING. Results of these tastings may be distributed freely without reference to the organisers, although credit be attributed to HappyVines.com. Interested wine distributors may contact us via Tel: 9671 0219, Fax: 775 6066 or e-mail: postmaster@happyvines.com
