SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 14 November 2019 - Wine shopping just got a little better this
Christmas season. Not only is Wine Connection coming back with the second
iteration of their annual Wine Tasting Fair on 16 and 17 November, they are

With each scan, Father Christmas will let you know if you have won a prize or

And because Santa is feeling generous, you can stand to win twice.

wine's aromas, tasting notes, food pairings, and other information in an
engaging manner. You will be able to rate the wines and the app will remember
your preferences for the next time it makes a recommendation.
