Launched in October this year, That Wine Is Mine (TWIM) – no relation to the similar-sounding Brandy and Monica ’90s hit – is the latest entrant into Singapore’s growing natural wine scene. The online platform seeks to demystify the world of natural wine, by making the bottle-acquiring experience fun and accessible.
Ditching fancy wine vocabulary or an overload of options, TWIM simplifies the selection process with just three curated box sets: Classic, Groovy, and Glou Glou.
The curated box sets by TWIM simplify your experience consuming natural wine.
The Classic set features tried-and-true flavours that both novice and seasoned drinkers will appreciate. Perfect for celebratory gatherings, the Groovy set is described as a ‘party mix’ with bold flavours. In contrast, Glou Glou offers a light and refreshing line-up, with notes like raspberry fruit, rose petal and citrus.
Behind this funky new brand are its four co-founders: husband-wife duo Hisamizu and Raquel Takahashi, Amaris Chen and Yaw Bin Hua.
The Takahashis used to own restaurant Rizu in Duxton Hill, and developed a passion for natural wine while running it. Chen and Yaw are the founders of independent branding and design studio Restless. Their work with F&B establishments like Nouri, Cloudstreet and Mandala Club got them interacting with numerous sommeliers.
The Clos des Cessieux, Herve Souhaut 2019 is a lively Syrah you’ll find in the Classic box.
Soon, they too cultivated an appreciation for natural wine. “We are all friends who get together quite often to wax lyrical about life over our favourite bottles, and TWIM is our way of connecting with fellow wine enthusiasts,” says Raquel.
She shares more about the growing popularity of natural wine, how exactly it differs from conventional varieties and what TWIM brings to this dynamic new scene.
