Bars in Singapore: where to drink natural wine

Explore the wild west of vino with these natural, biodynamic, and minimal intervention wine bars that also happen to be great watering holes.

  • Drunken Farmer natural wine pop up

    Drunken Farmer

    It all started when nomadic cooking project Paris Popup, well, popped up at Open Farm Community (OFC) and brought in a slew of natural wines to pair with the food. The Spa Esprit Group — which runs OFC and Tiong Bahru Bakery among other concepts — now has their own travelling natural wine programme, Drunken Farmer. The popup sees operations and wine manager Phil Chin setting up shop at the group's different properties to sling some left-field vino — natural, biodynamic, minimal intervention, and a whole host of other possible labels that indicate that there is going to be something expressive, funky, and brilliant in your glass. Says Chin, "Just like life in general, I prefer a wine with flaws and character than a manufactured wine that is just like all others.” In fact, Chin will go to lengths to prove it, possibly with a blind tasting.

    The first stop for Drunken Farmer is at Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari, where they'll also be serving a selection of charcuterie and cheeses in addition to wine. Drop by 17 May for their Flower Moon Party, which will see fitness programmes like night yoga offered, in addition to $10 glasses all night long.
