Laurence Low
President

Laurence Low enjoys spending time with family and friends, golf, ballroom dancing, good food, traveling, and good wines, in no particular order.

In his spare time, he is picking up photography and putting off hitting the gym.

 




Joyce Chang
Vice President

A lawyer by profession, Joyce Chang joined the society in 1999 and was most recently its president from 2011-2013. She first joined the committee in 2002-2005 as honorary secretary and more recently as cellarmaster in 2008-2011. She has also served on the committee of the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Singapore as Grand Secretaire and Grand Argentier.

As cellarmaster, Joyce strengthened the society cellar by purchasing older vintage Bordeaux and Burgundy from diverse merchants in London, Europe and Singapore. Sound en primeur purchases in 2008 and 2009 ensure that the society will continue to enjoy excellent wines from its cellar for years to come. The society now has an extremely well stocked cellar with some of the finest wines from all over the world, including first growth Bordeaux and grand cru Burgundy.

Joyce completed the Wine and Spirits Education Trust Advanced course in 2008 with distinction. She has a passion for excellent wine and food and a soft spot for the wines of Cheval Blanc and Burgundy.




Glenn Chin ChaoGlenn Chin Chao
Committee Member

Glenn's interest in wine began with Napa cabernets when he was working in the San Francisco Bay area in the mid 1990s. Since then, Glenn has developed an affinity for old world wines, primarily those from Italy and Bordeaux. But he still enjoys a good Napa cabernet.

Glenn is also a member of the Commanderie de Bordeaux, Singapore and enjoys getting together with friends to explore new restaurants and experiment with wine and food pairings.

 

 
Andy Sim
Committee Member

Andy enjoys food and wine. He enjoys movies as well; Sideways and Bottle Shock are good movies with wine theme. You get to learn more about Californian Pinot Noir from watching Sideways and the Judgement of Paris from watching Bottle Shock. His mantra – “It’s all in the terrior!”. A good wine - Climate, soil, and terrain. A good outing - Friends, food, and wine.


 

Sharon Sng
Committee Member

Sharon was an investment banker in a previous life, but has since left the dark side and re-emerged as an upright & upstanding corporate citizen (when she hasn't over indulged at an IWFS event) with a large SGX-listed company as its SVP, Regional Investments & Indonesia.

She is an avid, albeit experimental weekend cook, who enjoys creating dishes with surprising local/asian touches. Having travelled extensively and visited several wine regions in Italy, France, USA, Slovenia, Germany, Australia, Tasmania and NZ, she remains partial to Burgundian & Piedmontese wines.

Sharon has been a member of the Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin since 2007, and has been serving as the Grand Secretaire since Aug 2015. She was also on the panel of tasters for Wine for Wine & Dine's Top restaurants guide for 2007-2008.

As a counterfoil to her food & wine hobbies, Sharon spends some of her free time running, skiing, practicing yoga, tennis, swimming and chasing after her young son.
