Like a magic trick, café Common Man Stan turns into natural wine bar and bistro Drunken Farmer with the pulling of decorative roller blinds and flashy vintage cinema projections at the strike of 6 o'clock. Once a travelling wine bar – you may know it from its regular pop-ups around town – Drunken Farmer has ditched the nomadic lifestyle for permanent digs on Stanley Street. Grab a bottle from Drunken Farmer's selection of over 80 natural, organic, biodynamic, and sustainably farmed labels. Sourced straight from winemakers in France, Italy, Chile, and Spain, these wines are hand-harvested, spontaneously fermented, have no added sulfites, and are most importantly, delicious. We recommend the Brutal Ancestral 2019, a unique and devilishly fruity Pet-Nat that will cut through the fattier dishes on the menu; as well as the La Scarabée Qui Bulle 2014, a gourmet Grand Cru chosen by Drunken Farmer's wine curator Eduardo Bayo as a subtly sweet and bubbly end to a heavy meal.
Whether you're looking for a bottle of Old World or New, biodynamic and natural or cheap and under $30, these wine bars in Singapore are making alcoholic grapes great again. Don't expect stuffy and pretentious joints that befuddle you with jargon, these casual bars welcome everyone from the wine novice to the connoisseurs looking for a 1982 Lafite.
