Singapore has its fair share of wine bars. We roundup our picks that have great quality wines and some of which have great bites to add along with them. Here are our picks for 10 Best Wine Bars in Singapore.
If you're looking for a relaxed evening to spend with friends over a few good bottles of wine, this is a good bet. La Terre was recently awarded the 2 Star Jury Prize in the World Wine List Award 2017. They've got mainly old world wines, but the selection is curated.

Le Quinze Vins
New to the CBD is Le Quinze Vins, a branch of the highly respected Parisian wine bar of the same name. The space is small at just 200 square feet, but the wine list is huge with over 5,000 bottles on offer, many of which hail from wine growing regions from all over France. This is a great little spot for an after-work drink when you’re craving decent vino and really good cheese and crusty bread flown in directly from France. Be sure to ask the bartender for their suggestions, as they’re always getting in new bottles from both big-name and lesser known winemakers.

Not many people know about this contemporary spot on Keong Saik Road, but since we work at The Working Capitol, we spotted it close by and are glad we stopped in to check it out. They have a fab selection of Italian wines at great prices like Prosecco starting at $29.90++ a bottle, Ripasso Valpolicella for $39++ and Barolo for $59++. Um, Barolo for under $60… yes please! We also love that the menu includes tasting notes, which is super handy if you’re aiming to try something new or pair your wine with one of their Mod Sin dishes like the XO Lobster Linguine, Iberico Pork & Prawn Dumplings or the GG French Poulet.
