A week ago, we wrote about the passing of Singaporean wine retail legend Don Tay (1951 – 2021).
Don left us Sunday 11 July 2021. He was 70.
We also informed the world via Instagram.
(My apologies to Facebook readers for not replying as, although reposted there from Instagram, I only post on, and follow, Instagram).

There was a flood of condolences, praise and respect for Don, and fond memories from friends and readers including Hong Kong, Scotland, Australia, Japan, France and, of course, Singapore.
The response over the course of the week has been the highest of anything we have ever written.
It’s wonderful to know that Don remains so well loved, regarded, and remembered around the world!!
