The French Cellar, the first and only French wine club in Singapore

Launched in October 2013

wineservice_st2

“Chatting over wine, two Frenchmen based in Singapore mulled over the possibility of starting a wine-of-the-month club here.

It was not just idle chit chat either.(…)”

The French Cellar wants to show wine drinkers in the city-state that French wine is more than just Bordeaux.

The Edge

Think of The French Cellar as an exercise in uncorking surprises of the vino variety.

Singapore Tatler

The concept is simple. The French Cellar will send 2 bottles of French wine, which has been handpicked after meticulous tastings at vineyards across France.

August Man

What does a 3 Michelin Star rating mean?

Nicolas Rebut, The French Cellar sommelier based in France, has 20 years of experience working in 3 Michelin Star restaurants (Le Meurice, Paris – Louis XV Alain Ducasse, Monaco).

But what exactly is does a 3 Michelin Star rating mean for a restaurant and how is it awarded?

First, let’s look a what a 1, 2, and 3 Star rating signify.

Michelin is a tyre company which released a road guide for their customers’ convenience.

They rated certain restaurants depending on how ‘good’ they were. One star meant it’s safe to eat here, two stars meant that if you passed this place, it’s worth stopping to have some food at the restaurant. A three-star rating meant that it’s worth taking a twenty mile detour just to eat at this restaurant.

The exact process of how restaurants are rated is a well-kept secret. A Michelin reviewer will visit a restaurant under the guise of a normal guest. They want to have the purest experience possible.

To even be rated by Michelin, a restaurant needs to be in a city that’s covered under Michelin ratings. Cities like Hong Kong, Macau, and Tokyo are among those included in Asia.

There are 109 three-star restaurants worldwide.

What do you think about The French Cellar wine subscription concept?
Extremely helpful for wine duds like myself. I love a good wine but know nothing about them, so I much prefer having mine picked by connoisseurs who always get it right!
 
Tell us more about the wines you received! Did you share them with friends, family?
I have honestly enjoyed every bottle from the French Cellar. We eat a lot of roast at home so it’s a perfect marriage. I don’t remember any of the names because they really are ALL good so I just happily await the next recommendation by our French sommelier…
 
Would you recommend The French Cellar to your friends?
Always. Can’t rave enough about it.

Why the Founder of HardwareZone invested in The French Cellar – Mini-Interview #2

The French Cellar mini-interview #2


Jackie Lee
Founder, HardwareZone (sold to SPH in 2006)
CEO, clickTRUE Group
Chairman, The French Cellar Asia
 –
tfcjl2

 Jackie, how did you hear about The French Cellar?

I first heard about The French Cellar when I ordered a few bottles of wine from UOB Reserve vouchers in November 2013. My initial thoughts were:

1- While I love drinking wines, I do not know how to choose a good bottle of wine, especially French wines (what they called old world wines).

2- Having a wine expert to choose for me, and delivering the bottles right from the vineyard to my doorstep sounds like great value and convenience.

And since the price point was really affordable, I decided to try it out.

After being pleasantly surprised having tried the first bottle, it wasn’t too long before my entire family realised The French Cellar’s  value proposition. My wife and mum found the wines from The French Cellar tasting much better  than the wines we had from wedding banquets or those I bought from retail shops. In retrospect, the bottles cost significantly less than those I purchased previously.

There was also an additional bonus. All the wines came with tasting notes. On top of savouring the wine, I was learning about which region the wines came from, and how to differentiate the smell of each wine. Learning more about  what wine I drank had never crossed my mind!

From a subscriber to … an investor?

After a few more orders, I decided to find out more about the company. I thought to myself that a wine subscription e-commerce business model was a very interesting idea and it could really solve a few pain points for both consumers as well as businesses.

When I dug more into the company, I found out that the founder is a Ph.D. scientist from the pharmaceutical industry and it’s a very young startup. With that, my business instinct took over and I sent out a Linkedin message to the CEO, Vincent Morello on 28th Jan 2014 for a meeting. With a few more follow-up talks, I invested in The French Cellar in March 2014.

tfcjl1

Why did you invest in The French Cellar?

The French Cellar solves one fundamental problem for many consumers. When you are standing between rows of wines in a retail store, unless you are a wine connoisseur, chances are you will be confused about what is the best wine to buy. With more people enjoying wine in Asia as a way of life, whether it is sipping wine in the comfort of your home or drinking in a restaurant, The French Cellar helps to take away that chore of wine selection from you. Best of all, you know that the selection will always be done by an expert (Sommelier) and all you have to do is relax  and enjoy the wine with your loved ones.

In fact, wine subscription model is not new in UK, France or the US. Over the years, it is gaining popularity very quickly as consumers really enjoy the convenience. Being the first in Asia, The French Cellar has a first mover advantage in pioneering this business model for the wine industry.

In addition, I find their benefits really attractive:

1- A unique french wine discovery: Most wine lovers stick to a few trusted brands after a while. I honestly think that is because there is too much work and risk to try new ones. By signing up as a subscriber, you will really expand your choices without the risk (since they are carefully curated) and enjoy that pleasant surprise when you get charmed by 2 new bottles each month

2- Great Value and Convenience: The pricing for these wine is really affordable! The basic plan starts from S$79 for 2 bottles and they are delivered from the vineyards to the comfort of my doorstep. Easy!

3- Exclusive Curated Access to vineyard gems: You will hardly find their bottles in Singapore and Asia. These bottles are hand picked by a 3 star Michelin Sommelier in France every month. Tapping  into his access and experience and considering the price you pay as a consumer, it is a real steal!

4- Creating a scaleable Lifestyle & Edutainment Brand: The wine loving community is already a sizeable and growing one in Asian cities. The French Cellar platform will be a good place to round up this audience. I believe there is a market of  at least 1 million wine subscribers out there.

– 

Last but not least, the management team is young and passionate – Vincent Morello, Eric Joubert, Nicolas Rebut and Wang Jin (The French Cellar, China). I get excited by their energy and ideas when we talked about how we could grow the business. Their commitment extended to putting up their own savings  to realise  the potential of their ideas.  

Combining the above, The French Cellar can be potentially disruptive, if not enhancing, to the current way wines are appreciated and sold in Asia.

Rising mass affluence in Asia and growing Luxury aspirants in Asia, especially China and South East Asia, present the right indicators that this concept can scale and take off.

I really love the content, commerce and community angle to The French Cellar.

How your perception of French wine has changed?

After 2 years of subscriptions, through enjoying hundreds of different wine from more than 150 winemakers and through 15 regions, The French Cellar has helped me find enjoyable ways to understand and learn about the French regions and their wines.

I am 100% sure that if I have not been through the discovery journey, I will still be clueless about French wines.
In addition, through attending the many The French Cellar  community outreach activities  like public tasting and  corporate tasting events, I got to know and befriend many like-minded people. The subscription has also enriched my weekends with my family through the enjoying of food pairings and tasting with my parents. I would say such sessions helped me in communicating more with my old folks – talking about wine and life in general!

Huishan Lim & Scott Poh – Mini-Interview #4

Mini-Interview #4
 
Huishan Lim & Scott Poh
The French Cellar Members since 2014
scott
– 
Huishan, why did you subscribe to The French Cellar? 
I like good surprises and I like wine – having 2 good wines delivered to me on a monthly basis, delivering unexpected finds, is right up my alley. The wines go straight to my office, and it’s a great way to make sure I always have good wines on hand for “after work discussions”.
 –
Scott, you have two monthly wine subscriptions, Vineyard Gems and Tasting Voyage, may we know why?
I enjoy new experiences – drinks, food, and activities. And because I do not drink alone, 2 bottles a month are barely enough for my drinking sessions with family and friends. Subscribing to two plans gives me four different experiences – having worked out the math, subscribing to two plans gives me more value for money than ordering the wines separately.
 –
Huishan and Scott, you have participated in a few public and corporate wine tasting events, how were the experiences?
Scott: At these events, I enjoyed tasting a variety of wines from sparkling, whites, rosés, and a variety of reds at one go. Pairing with canapes, cheeses and oysters also opened my eyes to the world of wine pairings. These events were also casual and relaxed, with refills on the wines we like. If there can be more variety in locations and perhaps sit-down wine pairing dinners, there would be even more value for us in our wine discovery journey!
 
Huishan: I have been to a few events with my friends and colleagues, and I love how the events showcase wines as a social experience. I remember in particular the oyster tasting event – fresh, succulent oysters paired beautifully with wines are truly decadent! Something I really like about the events is also how they are not intimidating at all. The French Cellar guys are always happy to share their knowledge and wine trivia with us. It just makes the entire experience that much more fulfilling.
– 
Huishan, What is the most surprising French wine & Asian meal pairing you did so far?
Steamboat! 
 –
Huishan, Scott,  would you recommend The French Cellar to your friends?
Scott: Only to the generous ones who are willing to share!
Huishan: I have recommended it to my colleagues and friends who enjoy their wines! We catalogue the wines on apps like Vivino and look forward to (and discuss!) each month’s selection.
– 
Thanks a lot! Proud to have you in The French Cellar community

Award Winning French Wine Scholar chooses The French Cellar – Mini-Interview #1

The French Cellar mini-interview #1


Victor Koo
Sommelier
Certified Specialist in Wine
French Wine Scholar
– Victor, when and why did you subscribe to The French Cellar? 
I joined TFC in November 2013. Having 2 bottles of wine delivered to your house every month is one way to stock up the wine fridge which seems to be empty most of the time in my case :)
 
– What do you think about our Vineyard Gems and Tasting Voyage selections of wines so far?
I am actually very impressed with what Nicolas Rebut has selected for both Vineyard Gems and Tasting Voyage. Many of the wines are not readily available in Singapore and some not even in Paris! I find the wines of Vineyard Gems to be fun and exciting whereas the Tasting Voyage are for those who are abit more discerning.
 
– Which wine impresses you the most? why?
There are many but I probably re ordered the Chateau Simone Rose the most. I am never a big fan of Rose but this stuff is serious.
 
– Would you recommend The French Cellar to your friends?
Duh (of course)

Echelon’s Asia Top 62 Startups, The French Cellar secures 7-figure series A funding from ESW Manage

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Echelon’s Asia Top 62 Startups, The French Cellar secures 7-figure series A funding from ESW Manage

Singapore, 9th June 2014 – ESW Manage中青集团, is a private equity firm focused on investment opportunities particularly in Asia announced today it’s 7-figure investment to acquire a 20% stake into The French Cellar (www.theFrenchCellar.asia), Asia’s pioneer wine subscription e-commerce platform. This series A comes shortly after Kyosei Ventures, Jackie Lee joins as Chairman in March 2014.

Mr. Wong Yat Foo has been invited to join the startup as their Director. He is the founder and Chairman of private equity firm, ESW Manage Pte Ltd. Mr. Wong has more than 15 years of experience in regional and cross-border capital market transactions including mergers and acquisitions, initial public offering and private equity investment. Mr. Wong was the CEO and chairman of Mentor Media Ltd, which he took public in 1999 and sold for SGD 168 million in 2006 to a private equity. Currently, he is the President for Mentor Media Ltd.

“From $20.5 trillion and $12.7 trillion, respectively in 2012, assets owned by mass affluent and HNWI investors in Asia-Pacific are expected to rise to $43.3 trillion and $22.6 trillion respectively by 2020. The growth is expected to be higher for the mass affluent sector (with a CAGR of 9.8%) than for HNWIs (7.5%). The mass affluent and high-net-worth-individual population is rapidly growing in SE Asia and China. The French Cellar is pioneering curated wine subscription e-commerce in Asia which can directly tap into this trend. This is indeed an investment that can go public if the executions are right in the coming years. With Jackie as their mentor, I am excited and confident to join Vincent and Eric in their quest to unlock this obvious opportunity in Asia,” stated Wong.

“This is an exciting moment for us as we welcome on board a veteran, Mr Wong Yat Foo. His wisdom and experience will be a valuable asset to The French Cellar as we expand into Asia. In France, there are currently over 300 appellations, 115,000 winemakers producing more than 7 billion bottles of wines a year. The interest in genuine French Wine is always high. The demand for curation and guided discovery is an enormous one in Asia as well. We are convinced that the e-commerce subscription model of curated wines is the solution for the millions of wines lovers to address the challenge in choosing their wines. Our immediate markets of interest will include Malaysia, Indonesia, China and Japan,” said Dr. Vincent Morello, CEO of The French Cellar.

The French Cellar is also proud to share that after 400 applications, 180 pitches from 12 cities, and 4-stage stringent selection process, The French Cellar has also emerged as Asia’s Top 62 Startups in the Echelon 2014 sponsored by Singtel innov8 taking place from 10-11 June 2014.
