    Wine RVLT
  • Description
    Affectionately known as Al, is the founding partner of the original Wine RVLT. One of only two Singaporeans who have achieved the Advanced Sommelier qualification, Al is not only an exam geek as he is also competition freak. He has represented Singapore in the 14th Competition of the Best Sommelier of the World (Japan, 2013) as well as twice in the Competition of the Best Sommelier of Asia & Oceania (South Korea, 2012 & Hong Kong, 2015). He was selected yet again for the 4th Competition of the Best Sommelier of Asia & Oceania to be held in Japan in 2018 and has won Champion of South-East Asia Best Sommelier in 2017. “The long list of awards and wine certifications honestly means very little to me. It simply records my journey and my passion in wines. It also is a reminder of how his journey should continue growing. Having spent time in Raffles Hotel Singapore, Daniel Boulud’s DB Bistro Singapore, American Club Singapore, and Jean- Georges Vongerichten’s JG Shanghai, Al have opened his eyes and palate to top classic wines of best terroirs, top vintages, and rare collections. This journey has also brought him to discover real, living wines made by real vignerons/farmers. His personal passion is to share about the wines he loves to people so that he could share his joy twofold and more.
