Having worked at boujee places like Dempsey Hill as a student, I can probably vouch for some of us that when it comes to fancy wine — it can be super intimidating, and I don’t just mean the price tag.
The entire process of watching the waiter pop open the cork and waiting for you to smell and taste the wine and so on can be extremely nerve-wracking, especially for newbies who just want a taste of the good stuff.
At Vin Geek, a swanky new wine bar in town, you can do away with that awkwardness as they have wine dispensers that allow you to taste some of the finest wines without feeling like you’re being watched (or judged).
The wine dispensers hold a variety of red wine, white wine as well as many of the ladies’ personal kryptonite — pretty pink rosé. Once you’ve picked a wine that you’d like to sample, simply scan the QR codes provided on the bottles and you’ll be able to learn more about the wine you’ve chosen, as well as order and pay for it.
And here’s the best part — though the wines are of premium quality, the servings start from as low as S$3.50 as they come in a variety of portions starting from 30ml. This makes it really great for those who want to try a few different wines instead of sticking to the same ol’ one for the whole night.
If you’re looking to do a little bit of shopping, Vin Geek also has a retail section where you’ll be able to find not just the fine selection of wine that they offer, but also some delicious treats that pairs fantastic with wine like truffles, cured meats and cheese (you’ll be an MVP at your next gathering with these combinations for sure!).
The next time you’re feeling boujee but on a budget, and thirsting for some decadent wine, head over to Vin Geek and help yourself to some fancy sips!
