SAVOUR Wines 2016

The second part of SAVOUR 2016 is back from 9 – 11 Sept 2016 (read about the first part here), and this time, the focus is on wines! There will be a Wine Market which will house over 400 labels of wines from all over the world, such as from south America, California, Australia, Spain and Argentina. Entry to the Wine Market is via pre-purchased Wine Tasting Cards at $15 for 10 wine tastings or $20 for 20 wine tastings.

Each pre-purchased card comes with a free limited edition SAVOUR Wines wine glass, which can also be bought separately for $10. Wow so that means you’re paying only $5 for 10 wine tastings if you go for the $15 card! That’s like 50 cents per glass! Sounds like a good deal to me. Smile

Even if you don’t want to pay for the wine tastings, you should still make a visit to SAVOUR Wines because there are also free masterclasses on wine pairings, glassware, tasting notes etc. Each class fits a maximum of 20 people. And the maximum number of people allowed at every session of SAVOUR Wines is 700 peeps.

The 10 restaurants featured are

I had a sneak peek on Thursday, and my was the whole place teeming with activity. Did I mention that the location is also more accessible this year? It’s located at the empty field next to Marina Bay Sands, so for those coming by public transport, just take the MRT to Bayfront MRT Station and it will be a 5 minute walk to SAVOUR.

Savour 2014

If you have nothing to do this weekend, I highly recommend visiting Savour 2014 at the Marina Bay Promontory. It’s a mish mash of famous restaurants of Michelin starred chefs and other illustrious restaurants in Singapore, all located in 1 compact and convival setting. Tickets are not cheap. Dinner tickets, if bought online are $65, and gets you only $30 in Savour Dollars, which you use as payment for the sampling dishes. Most sampling dishes from each of the restaurants are around $15! It’s definitely not cheap, but it’s also a great way to eat your way through many of the restaurants you’ve always wanted to try, in a short span of time.

If you’ve been to Savour 2012 and Savour 2013 which were held at the F1 Pit Stop, the biggest difference you would find is that the area has been scaled down. But I really think this is a good thing because for one, this area is not as hot as the scorching tarmac at the F1 Pit Stop, and also, the very compactness facilitates the idea of hopping from restaurant to restaurant to savour the petite bites. In fact, the focus seems to be on the restaurants more than the small retail stores. To cut it short, it just feels like one big party, right in the heart of Marina Bay.

What to do at Savour 2013?

Savour2013 (3)

Before you do anything else at Savour 2013, you have to take a shot of the Singapore Flyer from the entrance angle. Smile

I was there today for The Great Fiji Water Race. If you didn’t go today, you’ve missed it, but you can still review all the action at http://instagram.com/365days2play. In fact, you should add me on Instagram and Twitter because you can get INSTANT and LIVE updates from me! SmileSmile

It was insanely hot when I got there at 2pm today. Woe betide the staff that had to stay at the ground level out in the open because I was sweltering after just 5 minutes there while doing my Fiji Water Race. Although the afternoon tickets are cheaper, I highly recommend that you take the evening tickets as it just makes for a more pleasant experience. I spent most of my time exploring the air-conditioned Gourmet Market, which is located in the F1 Pit Building. Whether you have an afternoon ticket or an evening ticket, you can enter the Gourmet Market anytime. The ticket type only restricts your movements in the Gourmet Village.

There was lots to do in the Gourmet Market. I armed myself with a toothpick and went around sampling all the delicious goodies. The Gourmet Market has a very Farmer’s Market feel, and you don’t feel pressured to buy anything at all. The guys at the gourmet sausage section were dishing out sausage after sausage after sausage and were probably the most packed area after the cheese section. As for the cheeses, I literally tasted 10 different types of cheeses!
