Appreciation for wine is taking root in Singapore, and this fact surprises only a few. The country’s economy is one of the best in Asia with foreign companies introducing their products and making them more affordable for the local citizens. If you want more proof, you can take a look at these other signs.
Wine in Restaurants
Many commercial eateries, fine dining establishments, well-known pubs, and even speciality rooftop restaurants in Singapore are now introducing more of the wines, spirits, and other alcoholic beverages to the receptive public by adding them to their menu. This could be seen as a sign that not only is there a market for these distinctive alcoholic products but there is room for promoting it to a larger market as well.
Every year, the number of imported brands and vintages introduced to the population is increasing. Local enthusiast groups also continue to be formed, even online, and they contribute to the public’s taste for wine through recommendations. The amount of promotion and word-of-mouth would be irresistible to any brand that wants to connect with the country. Also, there is the increasing possibility of local brands taking the spotlight despite the influx of foreign labels.
More of the specialised stores are popping up all over the country, both physically and online. Some of these establishments are now expanding and spreading their business to other areas in the region. So far, it’s mostly imports, but it won’t be long until shops with predominantly local brands will appear. With how much the country and the people embrace the emergence of these shops, there is bound to be a further increase of them in the near future.
With this kind of warm reception, Singapore is more than ready to take in more wine brands and even producing more of its labels and creations. Who knows, Singapore wines may even make a more indelible mark internationally. All these factors can prove that wine has a good future in this country.
