I am old fashioned. My daughter half-heartedly joked that I belong to the aging population - a group who’s supposedly “outdated”. My editor sent me an article “For the Love of God, Stop Putting Two Spaces After a Period”. My nephew remarked that his friends found my playlist ‘disturbing’.
But somehow it doesn’t bother me. I laugh about it. I am happy to keep to my faith, to keep on forging ties, to do what I like to define my own personal brand. Seriously, I am at an age whereby I have drawn a fair amount of experience to behave sensibly. And as an ageist, I also learnt from the movie ‘never trust anyone below 37 years’.
So what’s a side effect of age? Maybe wisdom. I accept events as they actually happen and do not wish for anything else. Being at peace is possible, so why not continue to raise a glass to life?
What's New at
The Wine Company @ Sentosa Boardwalk?
We have so many new things lined up, where do we start? For one, we have a huge new projector screen and a high resolution projector, which is PERFECT for events.
We are also open from 3 pm (instead of 5pm), as our new shade wards off the hot afternoon sun. We have UNLIMITED bubbly daily, at just $29.90. What’s more, if you are a member of your-wine-company, you get the chef’s complimentary bite!
And if alcohol’s not your thing, the scones & tea priced at just $9.90, available from opening until 6pm, should make you smile.
Who Says Lunch Has to Start by 1pm?
For those who want to beat the lunch crowd, late lunch is always a good idea. Our lunch menu includes Pig Trotter Bee Hoon ($6.90), Curry Chicken ($6.90), Caesar Salad ($6.90), Cream of Mushroom ($5.90) and 30% off all main courses from the a la carte menu.
And since we believe in add-on benefits, rice, coffee and tea are all complimentary during lunch!
You heard it here first – the Valle Reale Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2007 (Magnum format) is available at a steal, for just $149.90. Made from 100% Montelpuciano grapes, this beauty is full-bodied and drinking beautifully now. We believe wines from Montepulciano d’Abruzzo deserve more recognition and are very underrated (read: Good value!). Don’t say we didn’t warn you – while stocks last!
We are always game for something new. So why not have a go at The Amazonian (one of Belinda’s favourite) – a cocktail with a base of well-brewed Ceylon Tea, Cachaça & Lime Juice. More additions to our list – Old Fashioned and Negroni cocktails, available only at Woods (because that’s where you can ask for Chiggy, our mixologist!)
What's in Season?
That’s the question you need to ask our staff. We are always sourcing for new seasonal items, such as oysters, burrata, wagyu beef ... to the pig-trotter beehoon.
Ask, and maybe it shall be given.
Scones & Hot Dogs - We Did It!!!
What do scones and hot dogs have in common? These are recipes we recently perfected!
We serve our scones a la minute with homemade jam, clotted cream and lemon-butter. For the hot dog – we proudly say it is the best in town because we bake it in-house and the sausage is al dente.
