What’s more important when choosing wine to savour – the passion and expertise of the Sommelier, or the liberty to make your own choices? Thankfully at Praelum, you do not have to decide.
Praelum, or “wine press” in Latin, is a quaint wine bistro on Duxton Hill that delivers a delicate balance of forces – and gets it right. Head Sommelier-cum-General Manager Gerald Lu is an internationally certified Sommelier who was awarded best in Singapore in 2010. It’s little wonder then that at Praelum, everything seems to have been fitted under expert advice, including the enomatic machines used to dispense wine – an innovation that keeps bottles fresh after uncorking and allows for exquisite wines to be served and sampled by the glass.
The atmosphere here is also such that you, the customer, will always have the luxury of choice. Walk straight into the cellar to choose and pick a bottle you fancy. Ask as many questions and try as many wines as you like – and not be pressured to buy. For those also looking to grab a bite, indulge in their signature French-Indochinese menu, specially created to go well with the wines.
For a night out of fun and relaxation, head on over to Praelum to feel right at home in the company of excellent people and wine.
