After several highly successful years at the lobby lounge of Regent Singapore, fine wine purveyors Park90 have now launched the second of their concepts.
Named Tenuta, meaning ‘estate’ in Italian, the new space borrows the same winning formula as the first Park90 and transplants it to the lobby lounge of InterContinental Singapore. This time however, an all-Italian wine list awaits oenophiles.
Similar to the way the first venue operates, Tenuta is open to the public, but getting a membership entitles you to benefits, such as access to certain wine releases and invites to exclusive events.

Guests can order any wine from its vast list of over 420 Italian wines, while a curated menu of food is available from InterContinental Singapore’s restaurants LUCE by Davide Gaicomelli and Man FuYuan.
The wines themselves are sourced from all parts of Italy, including famed wine growing regions such as Veneto, Tuscany and Piedmont, as well as smaller ones such as Calabria, Molise and Valle d’Aosta.
Each month, the menu will also take on different themes and highlight various producers. The inaugural November 2022 menu features the Italian region of Campania, with lesser known producers taking the spotlight.
Head sommelier Aleksandra Arzhakova leads the team at Tenuta. Certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers, she has been working in Singapore since 2021, and before that, at restaurants and hotels around the world including the Burj Al Arab Hotel and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon Dubai.

“Italy is one of the most diverse winemaking countries in the world with so much to offer in each of its 20 wine producing regions, such as sparkling Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna and full-bodied red Gaglioppo from Calabria,” she says, speaking about Tenuta’s laser focus on Italian vino.
“With hundreds of recognised indigenous varieties, as well as familiar international varieties such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, guests will always find something new to pique their interest here. I look forward to discovering these wines with them.”
Tenuta by Park90 is located at 80 Middle Road, InterContinental Singapore, The Lobby Lounge, Singapore 188966.
