Wine producers from respective countries grouped together to showcase their wines under respective pavilions (namely Australia, Austria, Chile, France, Hungary, Italy and Portugal to mention a few). Even Singapore had a pavilion (made up of local wine merchants keen on showcasing wines under their portfolio). A surprising note was to find wine producers from countries like Canada, Russia and Serbia as well; wines from these countries are not widely sold in Singapore for now. It’s heartening to see their wines showcased here; giving local importers an opportunity to discover these wines on a first hand basis.

In addition to regular wine booths, there was also a Champagne lounge, a Rose wines tasting corner and a standalone wine tasting zone where wines from various wine producing regions were introduced for tasting and appreciation at different time slots. These enclaves provided participants an opportunity to taste and discover wines at a more leisurely pace.
