- Round up your partner in wine, because there's no better occasion to drink up!
There's only one thing better than wine, and that's wine with a friend. To celebrate our best pals who stick with us through thick and thin, this World Friendship Day (Tuesday 30 July), the first 10 customers who order a bottle from Wine Connection will also enjoy sipping their wine in a custom engraved 'Partners in Wine' glass - one each for them and their wine BFF. Cheers to that!
World Friendship Day, a day for celebrating all things friendship, was originally created in the 1930's by the founder of Hallmark Cards. The occasion, but was only made official in 2011 by the General Assembly of United Nations after it grew in popularity, thanks to the power of passionate pals who used the day to celebrate each other and exchange gifts. Fast forward to today, and it's the perfect excuse for wine o'clock with your bestie.
In collaboration with Wine Connection, the leading chain of wine shops and wine-themed restaurants in South-East Asia, the first 10 customers to order any bottle of wine from their Capital Square branch via Deliveroo on World Friendship Day, will automatically receive the limited edition glasses and handcrafted mango wood stand sets for keeps. It'll be fastest fingers first on the day, so make sure you and your drinking buddy don't miss out on this exclusive giveaway!
