[Media Invite] Rhône Wines and La Vieille Ferme

Very often, wine is associated to luxury which has earned its place in the beverage world as the scene-setter to any sumptuous culinary experience. Since there were so many different kinds of wine on the shelves, one common question many of us have in mind would probably be, "Is it true that expensive wines posess better taste and quality?"

Few days ago.. expert, Mr Emil Noel Teo from Taste of Tradition shares with the invited media and guest over a small session at Cold Storage (Plaza Singapura) on choosing a great bottle of wine at the supermarket.


Little did i know.. Factors such as location of the vineyard and winery, the brand image, scores and ratings and even celebrity associations can push prices on the upward trend without impacting the quality of the wine. However, there are less well-known facts in the wine universe which deserve attention. Wines produced from lesser known grapes, vineyards, wineries and producers, even from France; can offer exceptionally notable quality at affordable prices.

One can actually acquire a good bottle of wine at an affordable price conveniently from the supermarket and one such recommendation is the range from La Vieille Ferme! Their wines are also very easy to store and keep thanks to their modern Screw-cap bottle design! Screw-cap makes the best closure for wine as it is easy to use, requires no tools, is airtight and resealable, and most importantly.. no more taint and oxidation!

Since 1970, La Vieille Ferme has been producing authentic, honest and tasty wines vintage after vintage. In some of the world’s best restaurants and bars, La Vieille Ferme has been acknowledged as one of the best value for money wines in the world.




Apart from their vintage La Vieille Ferme Rouge (Red), here's a glass of La Vieille Ferme Blanc (White) which many would also enjoy drinking it as it has a fruity, crisp and soft taste!



My pick among the three is this Rose Wine from La Vieille Ferme. Not only is the bottle in pretty pink, the drink has a fresh and fruity note! This is also sweeter compared to the other two. =)


They say cheese pair well with wines.. I must say, these cheese were very addictive to consume!
