Products

01
What is the shelf life of the wines and spirits?
All sealed wine and spirits are shelf-stable when stored in a cool, dark place. Wine is, however a living, breathing entity so careful cellaring of more expensive items is highly recommended.

There is no definitive 'shelf life' for wine, but sommeliers can help advise how long certain wines can be cellared.

Once opened, spirits tend to have a much longer 'lifespan' than wine. However, even wine can, in certain instances, reward after a few days of being opened.

02
How should I store my wine or spirit?
Generally, wines are very sensitive liquids. This, combined with Singapore's climate, means that careful attention to storage temperatures must be adhered to.

Red wines are robust and slightly more resistant to heat than whites, thus the ideal storage temperature for such ranges from 10 – 15ºC. White wines can also be kept at this same temperature range, or at a slightly cooler temperature, ranging from 7 – 10 ºC.
03
I couldn't find a particular wine in your store, are you able to source for and bring it in?
At PIVENE, we are always happy to discover new wines and always more than willing to try and find these for you. Should there be an interesting wine that you're after, contact our sommelier team via the 'Contact Us' link and we will endeavour to see what we can do.
04
How accurate is the stock availability?
The stock level shown against each of our items is based on our live 'centralised inventory system'. It should always be up-to-date and the number of products marked as 'available' should be current and correct. Occasionally however, mistakes do happen but for the most part, the number shown should reflect the true stock availability.
05
What is the legal age to buy products from your store?
The legal drinking age in Singapore is 18 years old. This means that only those aged 18 and above will be able to buy and/or consume alcoholic beverages. This applies to the purchase and consumption in premises licensed to sell alcohol (such as restaurants and supermarkets) and also online, from e-commerce stores, such as www.pivene.com.
