Since its inception eight years ago, Pop Up Wine, Singapore’s fastest-growing wine company has been voted ‘Singapore’s Best Wine Store’ in the Asia Pacific Business Awards and has become one of the top alcohol e-commerce leaders in Singapore. The company has delivered more than 42,000 wine orders to Singapore homes, and it has seen a 240% average growth over the past three years- mostly due to lockdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company’s success was also based on fufilling a need for the 500,000 Singaporean wine drinkers who want high-quality wines delivered to their homes at low prices. Novice wine drinkers in Southeast Asia will benefit from the personalisation of a real-life digital sommelier available day and night to help with purchasing decisions. Pop Up Wine also assures their customers on purchasing quality wines: all wines available on their website have won multiple awards or have minimum ratings of 90/100 that are considered ‘outstanding’ by leading wine critics. The brand also assures customers of same day delivery whenever they make their orders before noon on the same day! Pop Up Wine intends to bring this successful business model to other countries in Southeast Asia, leveraging on its logistics hub and expanding its digital marketing capability.

Pop Up Wine’s expansion strategy is based on a growing appreciation for wine, as the emerging middle class in Southeast Asia increasingly embraces wine drinking. The Southeast Asian wine market is valued at US$20.62 billion, and the wine segment in Southeast Asia is projected to grow by 6.28% from 2023 to 2027. Pop Up Wine seeks to capture the region’s growing demand for wine by entering markets such as Vietnam and Cambodia over the next 18 months.

We’re confident we can leverage our success in the Singapore market in other parts of South East Asia. Singapore has proven to be a solid logistics hub and base for us to build and expand our digital marketing capability,” said Isadora Noble, co-founder of Pop Up Wine.

Some of Pop Up Wine’s noteworthy bottles include the MAXIME BLIN CARTE BLANCHE BRUT (S$69), a fully certified organic champagne that are highly sought after due to its crisp, refreshing taste and lower C02 content that allows champagne lovers to enjoy the taste without worrying about excessive bloating afterwards.
