The 16th Grand Wine Experience
Gurkka exclusive wines: Inniskillin Canadian Icewine as well as Mt.Veeder, Clos du Bois, and Simi Californian Wines at the 16th Grand Wine Experience
A gathering of wine enthusiasts, wine collectors, businessmen, food and beverage industry practitioners, and who's who of the Manila's society happens annually during the prestigious Grand Wine Experience.
This is like the MET Ball of Wine where more than 500 kinds of wine and liquors can be tasted to your heart's content.
The Grand Wine Experience started off with the Joseph brothers' vision of a Filipino Family gathering during lunch or dinner with a glass of wine. Their vision of offering Filipino families affordable and decent wines, which comes from different parts of the world, is something that they believe could be possible.
This is the reason why their company, Philippine Wine Merchants, created this festive event so that the supplier’s around the world could partake and engage in this festivity and offer Filipinos Taste of their great wine.
For us Filipinos, this is our chance to b educated in both history and knowledge of wine so that we may share it with our friends, colleagues, and families. This is also our chance to taste the different types of wine, old world or new world, and decide on ourselves what would be our preference.
This year, the event was made grander than ever. New additions were added to the already grandiose event such as bloggers corner and their newly launched Grand Wine Magazine which is an annual issue. Another new gimmick they had is the unveiling of the chocolate buffet dessert which was hanged from the ceiling and unveiled to guests to a gift of heaven. The chocolate dessert was indeed luscious, luxurious and blissful.
This year’s selection of wines and alcohols was definitely vast and over the top. Some of them are the new World Wines from Chile and Old World wines which span centuries of heritage and histories from France, Italy, Spain and more. Guests are flooded with choices and new discoveries because there is so much to choose from.
