Welcome to Wine Lovers Club Singapore!
What do you call a Wine Lover?
Quite simply, people who collect wine are just called “wine collectors.” While there are terms for wine lovers (oenophiles), wine fans (aficionados) and those with knowledge about wine (connoisseurs), the act of collecting wine doesn’t have its own cool nickname.
Our mission is to gather a group of wine lovers to come together to learn all about wines in wine appreciation classes, wine courses, private wine tasting sessions as well as to learn from Singapore’s first Master of Wine, Mr Tan Wing Hsien.
Oenophilia (/ˌiːnəˈfɪliə/ EE-nə-FIL-ee-ə; Greek for the love (philia) of wine (oinos)) is a love of wine. In the strictest sense, oenophilia describes a disciplined devotion to wine, accompanying strict traditions of consumption and appreciation. In a general sense however, oenophilia simply refers to the enjoyment of wine, often by laymen. Oenophiles are also known as wine aficionados or connoisseurs. They are people who appreciate or collect wine, particularly grape wines from certain regions, varietal types, or methods of manufacture. While most oenophiles are hobbyists, some may also be professionals like vintners, sommeliers, wine merchants, or one who tastes and grades wines for a living.
After an arduous six years, Singaporean wine educator, speaker and journalist Tan Ying Hsien has become the first Singaporean to be a Master of Wine (MW). It is the one of the most prestigious and sought-after titles in the wine world and is awarded by the London-based The Institute of Masters of Wine.
