This month’s forecast: 99% chance of wine
Like true blue Singaporeans, we love complaining about inane issues. And thanks to 1-Group, we can now whine over wine until end August at upscale lifestyle destinations of 1-Altitude, Monti, The Garage, and The Summerhouse.
Titled Wine Lust Journeys, the extravaganza has 14 gastronomic adventures hosted across the mentioned four destinations, where merrymakers can gather together to revel in the spirit of wine drinking through a flurry of unique programmes.
Highlights to expect are dinner pairings, pop-up cellars and celebratory events. You can even purchase wine bottles (including Magnum and Jeroboam formats) on site at retail and wholesale prices.
But where to being to satiate one’s wine lust? Well, you can start with our five top picks:

1. Savour 69 wines at Botanico
At the Wine Lust Afternoon Affair ($35 per pax) happening on 27 August from 3pm to 6pm, six wine partners have banded together to bring a collection of 69 labels for you to sample all in a single afternoon. Not only are you given your very own Ridel glass to drink out, you can also bring bottles of these new and old world wines home at wholesale prices, as well as cases from $20 per bottle. Drinking wine on an empty stomach is never a good idea. Therefore, consider going for the four-course Wine Lust Brunch ($65) from 12pm to 3pm, before adjourning to the indulgent wine-filled affair.
