In conjunction with this year’s Singapore National Sommelier Competition, the Sommelier Association of Singapore has teamed up with The Flying Sommeliers (you’ll know them as the guys who dressed up as Star Wars characters for a series of wine dinners last year) to bring you The Grape Escape — the first-ever public tasting organised by the association.

These are the guys that helped organize this event. We can’t guarantee they’ll be dressed like this then.

There’ll be over 80 labels of chardonnay and pinot noir up for tasting, from some of the industry’s most prominent vendors, who will be presenting wines in partnership with local somms from the association. Expect plenty of well-curated vino, an educational experience, and a most importantly, a smashing great time.

What’s more, half of the proceeds from all ticket sales ($30 a ticket) will go to charity organisation SPD (formerly known as Society for the Physically Disabled).

At the same time, the finals of the National Sommelier Competition will be happening, which sees the top 3 competitors performing their tasks in front of a live audience, and international judges. This will also be the first year foreign sommeliers are allowed to compete and represent — all presided over by first ever Chinese Master Sommelier, Lu Yang; alongside Singapore’s first residing Master Sommelier, Mathias Camelleri.
