About B°NU wines and our wine advisor, Shalom Chin
B°NU was birthed from the frustration over the overpriced and unsatisfactory quality of produce at local supermarkets. Fueled by the conviction to spread the awareness and appreciation of passionate and quality-driven artisanal producers, B°NU aims to support producers whose core desire is to create the best produce the land can offer.
We believe in produce that boldly reflects the spirit of its creators and its land of origin. Our stringent selection is handcrafted, limited in production, made by producers with savoir-faire, passion and a strong personal story.
About our Wine Advisor
Shalom’s first foray into wines began at an age of seventeen when he drank his first bottle of Chardonnay. His thirst for wines and desire to uncover its secrets has compelled him to travel and live in various wine regions around the world. Through rigorous study and time spent learning from the masters of the wine world, he developed an acute palate to identify wines before they become fully recognized. His international wine experience, which includes doing vintages in Austria, Australia and Italy as well as working for an Italian wine export company, has gifted him with the knowledge to source for palate-pleasing wines. He believes small producers deserve a chance to communicate their passion and commitment.
