Has severe RBF but is fairly jolly and carefree on the inside. Degree of life satisfaction is heavily influenced by food.

It isn't every day when we can casually order a bottle of really expensive wine, save for the well-heeled. But at Vin Geek, a new bistro at Pacific Plaza, regular Joes can enjoy small quantities of the finest wine in an unintimidating environment without racking up a frightening bill.


First started as an e-commerce store in 2012, Vin Geek has evolved into a wine bar, bistro and retail store that aims to translate wine culture for everyone. Another interesting feature is its self-service wine dispenser offering tasting portions of premium wines from around the world including Australia, France, Italy and Spain.

The wine dispenser holds a rotation of 24 wine bottles including reds, whites and rosés. Each bottle has a QR codes so diners can learn more about each wine's origins and taste profiles - very introvert-friendly!

These QR codes also serve as the ordering and payment method. After scanning the code and inputing your details, simply choose between three tasting measures - 30ml, 90ml and 150ml - and press start.

With prices starting from $2.50 for a 30ml Rosé, this wine concept is deal for those who'd like to sample a wide variety of wines. And for those who want a taste of some fancy wine with an equally fancy price tag, there's the option to try a tiny quantity here, rather than committing to a standard full glass or the entire bottle.

Vin Geek Retail Section

Vin Geek also has a retail section with five wine categories that are perfect for noob customers to navigate though the various wine types.

Looking to impress someone or celebrate an achievement? Head to the hilariously named The Big D*ck Energy Collection for rare wines and spirits from high-end Bordeaux to Super Tuscans. If you're having a catch-up session with friends, the smooth, easy to drink wines at the Goss-Sip Collection are the perfect accompaniment.

Along with the wines, Vin Geek has curated a selection of produce for the retail section, including over 30 artisanal cheeses, tinned seafood, cured meats and jams. You'll also be able to find unique and exclusive products and brands such as Savini Tartufi, known as the holy grail of Italian truffles, Scout, the first sustainable canned seafood brand to source 100% of its produce from Canada and the US, as well as Graceburn, a rare unpasteurised cheese.

The 52-seater bistro exudes the same casual vibes as Vin Geek's approach to wine. The interiors have a warm elegance with a vibrant colour palette of red, white, yellow and orange, as well as a whimsical mix of materials including steel, marble and mosaic tiles.
