Wine Connection Cheese “Bar”, Robertson Quay, Singapore

Wine Connection is somewhere I think that all Europeans find out about pretty quickly when moving to Singapore. Whether you buy wine from their shop to enjoy at home or eat in either the tapas bar or Cheese Bar, it seems to be somewhere we all find ourselves eventually. They underwent a renovation last year and this was the first time I have been to the Cheese Bar since then so when friends suggested a post work drink there I was delighted to make the journey to see what they had done. The wine list has plenty of wines in the $30-50 range (and more above if you so wish) from all over the world, we had a Verdicchio from Italy as well as a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and a Californian Chardonnay. You can also order portions of Cheese, either 3 or 5 per portion, Raclette and a selection of different Cured Meats. I chose a few cheese for myself and one friend to enjoy as the others had already eaten when we arrived. For $19 for 3 pieces I chose Maroilles (a Cow Milk, Washed Rind cheese from the North of France) Livarot (said to be one of Frances oldest cheese, a washed Rind Cow Milk Cheese from Normandy) and some Ossau Iraty (a Hard, Ewes Milk Cheese from the South West of France another favourite of my Mothers, along with the Fourme D’ambert) which came served with some bread ( we needed to order more at $6 a basket) Apple Slices, Grapes and some Apple Compote. The new interior is very bright and modern with display cases for the cheese alongside one wall so you can see the cheese from outside and inside the bar. I didn’t realize they serve Raclette, so I feel another trip coming on soon if anyone fancies joining me….
