Bonjour! French Festival launches in Singapore this May and nothing feels more French than indulging in a glass of wine and savouring fromage with a picturesque view of the Eiffel tower. (I know, I’m a huge romantic)
This year, French Festival steps things up by bringing France closer to you.
Treat yourself to authentic cuisine and sip wines from these participating outlets:
1. 13% Gastro Wine
With over 20 years’ of experience in wine and gastronomy, Bruno Valiant and Geoffrey Weckx’s restaurant caters to people who enjoy the finer things in life. Indulge in premium-quality food from the menu, while savouring wines imported from vineyards across the world.
For a meal, give the grilled wagyu sirloin grade 6 beef a try. Relish the full bodied flavour of the juicy beef while sipping an accompanying glass of robust, exotic wine.

4. Grignoter by Chef Justin Quek
Serving simple, rustic French food, Grignoter reflects its namesake, meaning “to nibble” in French.
This is Southeast Asia’s first Bordeaux wine bar, and being the first has its perks I suppose. In partnership with the Bordeaux Wine Council, Grignoter has direct access to wines not otherwise available in Singapore.
Something else exclusive to Grignoter is Chef Quek’s very own creation, the vintage 1996 Saint Vincent Curvée. It has a complex aroma that is sweet — reminiscent of truffles and brioche. For the best flavour, pair this drink with their selection of fine cheese.
French Festival Promo: enjoy exclusive discount on selected wines.

5. Bar- A- Thym
