Big Deal

128 bottles is only small fry to Mr Keith Kuo

Last Friday 24 April 2020, when we sent out our afternoon 128 Bottles Sold! ALERT, a reader replied “Big deal.”

We don’t know why Mr Keith KUO was offended. We tried to find out by writing back to him. In the email, we  thanked him for writing but also to ask what he meant by his comment.

Since he has not replied, we are left to wonder if perhaps Mr Kuo was offended by only 128 bottles sold because he orders champagne by the several hundreds or thousands of bottles.

Or perhaps he took offence to the special price of S$55 nett per bottle or S$300 per 6-pack, considering that to be beneath him.

In either case, it would be wonderful for Mr Kuo to help Le Vigne sell more Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut by ordering direct from the company at

As soon as he does that, we will be the first to let you know.


Coronavirus and the lockdown have meant that a lot of businesses – and individuals – are finding it tough going. In spite of the challenges, many continue to pay their staff. Such is their integrity. They also try all sorts of ways to keep their staff morale flying.

Our website considers itself very fortunate that Le Vigne approached us with the wonderful Exclusive Offer for you, our readers.

We are so grateful to Le Vigne and to all of you who helped. Those who bought, those who passed on the message, and all of you who continue to read our website.

We find it utterly perplexing that Mr Keith Kuo should be so discouraging when people are trying to find ways to keep our spirits flying in times of need. And to take offence for spreading the enjoyment of champagne – and wine – when he is a former chef or head of the l’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne.

Since Le Vigne started their initiative on Friday 17 April 2020 with our website, they have sold 140 bottles of Champagne Duval-Leroy Brut12 bottles of Bald Hills Central Otago Last Light Riesling 2008 and 12 bottles of Plan B Mosel Riesling 2014.

Big deal?

Yes, to us.

And we Thank You Very Much from the bottom of our heart (and liver).

You are the reason this website exists.
