8 best Wines in Singapore and what to have them with

Are you one of those people who are clueless about wine? Or your idea of good wine is the $20 bottle from any grocery store? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Let us first clarify that we are by no means any kind of wine expert, thus the need for the foodpanda team to sit together and do some research on the internet.

If choosing a bottle from the wine list at a fancy restaurant was basically a game of eenie meenie mo for you, then it’s time to understand the different types of wine and what food they should be paired with. Here’s a simple guide to the types of wines available and the food to pair them with:
