Podo Wine Outlet is KL's new wine shop with a twist - its South Korean founder, Soo, has personally tasted each of the 700 different wines that she sells. She has extensive knowledge about these wines, so she is confident and happy to recommend her selection to customers.

If you enjoy exploring the world of wines, pick Podo for your next shopping spree. 

Patrons can physically visit Podo Wine Outlet's first store, with its strikingly charming entrance in Desa Sri Hartamas, or order online on podowineoutlet.com

Soo is a certified sommelier with more than 10 years of experience in her homeland. She consistently keeps up with wine trends - for example, with white wines now becoming increasingly popular in both South Korea and Malaysia, she stocks plenty of Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs, Pinot Grigio and their peers.

Podo also exclusively carries a few of Soo's favourite labels, some particularly popular in South Korea. This is a convenient way to sample several wines not available elsewhere in Malaysia. For a limited time only, free delivery is available for orders above RM399 within the Klang Valley, 

Fun fact: Podo is Korean for grape, reflecting the precious produce of vineyards worldwide.





Podo Wine Outlet is a friendly sanctuary for wine lovers, with shelves and racks neatly lined up for easy examination. Wine here span the major regions, from Europe's hubs of France, Spain, Italy and Portugal to the USA, Chile and Argentina, plus Australia and New Zealand. The top-selling Korean beer, Terra, and a wide range of soju are also available.

Whether you're into reds or whites, sparkling, rosé, natural or dessert wines, there's a label to love here, with bottles starting from as low as RM60.


A sommelier's certificate (WSET Level 3) illustrates Soo's commitment to wine. She also ensures all of Podo's wines are properly kept - the temperature and humidity inside Podo Wine Outlet is kept consistent, day and night, so that each wine remains at its optimum quality.

A special room is prepared for wine discussions - customers can chat with Soo and her team about their preferences before purchasing. This room will soon also host cosy wine tastings in the near future.
