Fermented Grape Juice

Fermented Grape Juice (FGJ) was founded in 2013 by a group of partners who are completely infatuated with wine. Wine started off as a hobby in 90s, grew into a passion in the 2000s and finally into a business…..we have not looked back since.

Besides drinking wine, our greatest passion lies in spreading the stories of wine, sharing our knowledge with customers, as well offering guidance on wine pairing selection. Ultimately, we hope our customers benefit from our passion by becoming more discerning buyers of wines and spirits.

We pride ourselves on offering expert wine advice (all our advisors are wine-certified), competitive pricing, hassle-free ordering, and an overall pleasant customer experience.

We also make a special effort to store our wines in a temperature-controlled environment, as we know that provenance affects the manner in which wines evolve and taste. We don’t look for shortcuts in delivering wines to you, as all our deliveries are point-to-point, from our storage direct to your door. In the Malaysian heat, this is a big deal and we want you to know we got it covered!

We look forward to serving you, Happy Drinking!

Partner, Wine Geek

Choong’s passion for wine began in Perth, Western Australia where he spent his teenage years growing up amongst some of the finest wines produced in the Southern Hemisphere – Margaret River.

Upon returning to Malaysia after graduating from business school, he pursued a corporate career for 15 years that allowed him to be amongst wine regularly; again, he feels blessed that the perks of international corporate travel and corporate entertaining provided him to opportunity to feed his passion for wines. In 2012, work brought him to live in California for a year and he spent 2 weekends every month roaming vineyards in Napa, Sonoma and the Santa Rita Hills. Now as part of Fermented Grape Juice, he gets to make a living from what he enjoys most – wine!

He continues to travel extensively for wine, making a point to visit different industry events and wineries yearly; Choong is also currently pursuing his WSET Level 3, all these form part of his continuous education in wines. His favourite wines change seasonally, at the moment, it is Old & New World Pinot Noir, Pomerol, Chardonnay and Northern Italian aromatic whites. In his free time, he likes exploring lesser-known wines, new food pairings and wine travel.
