How it all began

ChateauAsia began in Singapore in the spring of 2012, when we realized that it was almost impossible to find great French wines at affordable prices. We also realized that it was not easy finding easy-going wine professionals willing to share their knowledge with beginners and amateurs.

Three friends, who share a passion for wines, technology, and a great lifestyle, decided to create a company. We wanted to share our knowledge for great wines, meet wine enthusiasts, and offer fantastic wines at great prices.

Soon, we decided to gather our community into monthly tasting events held at exclusive locations, such as the Raffles Hotel, One Altitude, and the Tower Club. We also gathered at more intimate places in the fun neighborhoods like Tiong Bahru and Duxton Hill. We love meeting our community at these events.

Today, Nicolas, our master sommelier, works every day with wine professionals, wine experts, wine distributors, and wineries to select the best French wines in Singapore. The rest of the ChateauAsia team picks up from there to bring these fantastic wines to our community of wine lovers. Join us today to be part of our fun and fast-growing community!

ChateauAsia currently operates in Singapore and plans on expanding operations into Southeast Asia.

Geoffroy is a globe trotter, he has worked in over 15 countries and traveled to a lot more. When traveling Geoffroy is always eager to try the local specialties and is rather daring. As for wine, one could say that Geoffroy fell into it when he was young, starting when his Grandfather would pre-open and line up the several bottles of wines that were to be savoured during family reunions such as Christmas. Even as a child he was trying to take part of the wine discussions happening between adults. He is a Bordeaux fanatic.

ChateauAsia is a true partner that goes the extra mile for its customers and select only our most exclusive products.

MHD Sales director

Chateau Asia has brought in some quality wines, priced reasonably and promoted some wines that have been hard to find locally. Their service has been excellent and reliable.  By using Chateau Asia, I can buy wines wherever and whenever!

Stanley L

I finally found a place to buy Champagne, in Singapore, at reasonable price (they also have a great wine collection from France): You can buy Ruinart Blanc de Blanc (my favourite) at the same price as you would buy in France! They also organise great events, that give you a chance to discover different wine/champagnes, so I have attended 2 of those events, and will be attending more. I also got to meet the owners/managers and on top of being nice/friendly, they also have a very good knowledge of the products they sell.

Rajeev H

Just a quick message to say that the bottles were delivered ok this morning. We have a full stock of wines now, but I look forward to using your service another time in the future. Cheers!


I can't believe you managed to get a Saint Emilion Grand Cru for $34.9 in Singapore.The wine was the star of my dinner. Well done!


The Champagne was very tasty, a little bit sweet which makes it a festive bottle for a brunch or as an aperitive


BTW - very nice champagne - thank you - we tried the first bottle over the weekend


We truly enjoyed the wine tasting evening and thought the pairing was brilliant. The location was also well chosen with much attention to detail. Your online website is very well structured, prices seem quite reasonable and the website look and feel is great. I like the concept of not overwhelming the website with hundreds of wines, but rather limit the choice to those that are personally recommended. In most other online stores, you will find a lot of rubbish and you would have a hard time finding the gems. I also made bad experience with another low priced store where half of the 8 champagne bottles I bought turned out to be spoilt (probably a storage problem). So having a reliable wine supplier with chose wines at reasonable prices is a good proposition.

COO, Standard Chartered Bank

I worked with Chateau Asia as Head of Communications for BNP Paribas Wealth Management Asia and 'took them with me' when we opened HYT Asia! Chateau Asia are reliable, friendly, highly knowledgeable and very fairly priced. They respond quickly and deliver very promptly. We’ve had quite a few last minute events and Carolyn and Arnaud have always been up to the challenge. Great partners to work with that I highly recommend.

HYT Asia

I have enjoyed very much the good service and fast responses and updates to the orders and my requests so far so thank you very much for making my first experience on online wine ordering such a great one. :)

Peggy N.

ChateauAsia is one of most trusted partners in Singapore. The passion of the team and their attention to quality fits perfectly our aspiration for Ruinart in Singapore.

Ruinart & Dom Perignon Brand Manager

The ChateauAsia team is full of rock stars and smart people. They are full of humour and super good looking, you should join.

Rachel and Guillaume

I have very much enjoyed the experience at each and every ChateauAsia event I’ve attended in the past one year and half - it is all of the wine, the crowd, the ambience and, most importantly, the passionate and caring hosts, hostesses themselves. I am most certain that I will be attending ChateauAsia for as long as I am around.


I have been a client of Chateau Asia for 2 years now and have been impressed by their eclectic selection of French wine at excellent prices. I have discovered new appellations and even grapes that I had never heard of before, even after having lived in Geneva for four years.

Peter K
Hong Kong

I have been a customer of Chateau Asia for many years and if anyone is thinking of using their wine supply service, you will not be disappointed. I am not a wine aficionado, but I know what I liked the taste of, and Chateau Asia has been excellent in recommending wines at affordable prices that both my wife and I enjoy. They are always helpful, very friendly, and it’s a real pleasure to be a customer of Chateau Asia. If you want great wines, great service, excellent knowledge and a friendly approach to the possibilities of the wines, then you will not go wrong with Chateau Asia. Many thanks to Arnaud and his merry band of sommeliers for giving me the opportunity to learn and enjoy wine as never before.

Duncan A

We've already gone through 4 bottles and we love it. I'm a big fan of white ChateauNeuf Du Pape.At $53 this was a much better deal/value than buying these over priced [CENSORED] wines offered in Singapore.I am very happy with the purchase and i am looking forward to more good deals.


Another awesome ChateauAsia event, with a selection of 6 well chosen wines, with the highlight of the wine tasting being the famous Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Magnum champagne as the highlight of the evenings (I counted 3 empty Magnum bottles before I left...). The Pol Roger champagne, one of my favourites, was very pleasing as is the price tag being offered online. Danny the Magicien entertained us with some jaw-dropping card tricks that caused me to hold on tightly to my credit card as I was worried he might make it disappear... The high end venue was well chosen as the company of wine lovers. A great evening….cannot wait to receive the next invitation!

Michael H
