After a long day of working, it’s always nice to kick back with a glass of wine and some delicious, well-prepared dishes for dinner at the finest wine bars in Singapore.
Some wine businesses in Singapore have adapted to the novel Coronavirus pandemic by offering virtual wine-tasting sessions and on-demand delivery services.
But it’s always better when wine is enjoyed together with great company.
Very soon, we can all do that as long as we practice social distancing and adhere to safety measures.
Until then, here are the top 5 wine bars in Singapore to have a glass-raising good time.
