Singapore’s annual wine extravaganza Wine Lust is back for its sixth edition. This signature event organised by 1-Group starts on 12 August. It takes place over one month across the group’s seven iconic and heritage dining properties, with exceptional experiences crafted in celebration of award-winning labels and wine lists.
Three Types of Programmes for Everyone
Having recently bagged multiple awards including the New World Wine List and Old World
Wine List of the Year from the recent World Gourmet Summit (WGS) 2022, 1-Group has lined up an impressive series of programmes and promotions.
Each outlet in the seven participating properties will be showcasing its carefully curated labels in three types of programmes: wine and dine, retail, and events. Vinophiles and wine enthusiasts can look forward to pairings with meticulously crafted menus, exclusive winemaker meet-ups, and great retail programmes with exclusive back vintages too good to be missed.
