Raison is French for "reason", and a pun on the word "raisin" which is French for "grape". Hence, reasonable grapes - our commitment to bring you great wines at reasonable prices.
The seeds of Raison Wines were planted during a 6 month (non-wine) stint in Paris, where the overwhelming variety and quality of French wines prompted the question "why on earth aren't these fantastic, interesting wines available in Singapore?". Raison Wines is our attempt to stop this question from arising again.
Not to read too much into it, but you are also welcome to contemplate your raison d'etre, or reason for being, over a glass of our finest.
Amy spent 3 months in France (including on that bicycle above in the Loire) sourcing wines directly from the vineyards, cutting out the middlemen that stand between you and your reasonable grapes. All to bring freshness, outstanding quality, and fair pricing to you, uninterrupted.
Thank you for getting to know us a little better. Now, it is time to find out a little more about our wines, and a little more about yourself in the glass too :)

P.S: behind Raison Wines lie an ex-lawyer and a current-lawyer. The concept of "reasonableness" is an inside joke that haunts successive legal generations.
