Spot.ph invited us bloggers to attend this very formal event in Trinoma Mall to have a personal experience and first taste of Rene Barbier wines. The Spanish Wine is a masterpiece done by French wine maker, Leon Barbier, who started his wine making venture after leaving France in 1880 and moved to Catalonia, Spain. There he found the lush land of Penedes, were it became his sanctuary for making great wines. Then he was blessed to have his first son, named after his child then Rene Barbier was born.
I tasted a lot of wines already and every time there will be an occasion in any events and family gatherings. But here at the wine appreciation, tasting and workshop, I just tasted a different kind of wine and it tasted different from other wines. So I just learned that US made red wines tasted a little sweet, while the red wines of Rene Barbier is a little hard and thick which makes it really pure. ( Read more my stories, photos & video below)
And I didn’t know that pure red wines are not just made of grapes, but they are made of all the grape plant, from the fruit, leaves, stem and its root. That’s why it is a lot more different when I tasted it. The Sparkle wine is the best, I enjoyed drinking it and it make me very relaxed, some says that it just drinking a carbonated drink with wine. The Rene Barbier Petitilant Pearl wines is a fun drink too, It is like a red wine but the taste is like a sparkling wine. I’m not an expert in tasting these wines, but all I can say is that I really enjoyed the taste and it is a perfect match for a table meal and long conversation.
While we eat and drink, we have this on going conversation and it feels great to have an experience in enjoying both ways, Eat, Drink, and talk.

I have a video blog of the wine event and you can view it below
I'm very happy that Lace went with me at this event, and traveling all the way from Cavite to Trinoma Mall is a long ride of bus and MRT haahha. Then met my blogger friends who joined the event and its great to see my circle and networks enjoying the wine event. I got a little tipsy after some drinks, and because that I got hooked by it during our long talks to my table mates, Nan, Jonel, RG, Mark Cerbo, Sire and Lace. Renzie was sitting on the other side of the table, while other blogger friends like Rowena the contest queen, and Karl of Spot.ph We arrived late on that night but it was great to catch up on the updates with my blogger friends as they shared me on what they have learned during the workshop and wine talks by professionals.
