The awesome experience at The 16th Grand Wine Experience 2016



Its their 16th and its my 1st at the Grand Wine Experience last November 4th at Marriott Hotel Grand Ballroom. The Philippine Wine Merchant, one of the top and biggest wine distributor in the Philippines pulled off another Grand Wine Experience event that is considered as the biggest wine event here in South East Asia.



Wine makers, drinkers and connoisseur  gather here to enjoy some wine, try new kind of wine, and celebrate the art of drinking wine with a company and share memory.

The Philippine Wine Merchant brought in some wine and spirit brands at the event, to introduce and re-introduce the variety of wine and spirit to the public, They brought Camus VSOP, Hennessy XO, Glenmorangie 10YO, Patron Tequila Silver, Johnnie Walker Red and Johnnie Walker Black, Montes Cab Sauv, Montes Chardonnay, Yalumba Y Series Chardonnay, Gossips Moscato Sweet Lips, Guntrum Riesling, Stolichnaya Red, Wente,and  Proseccozonin.

At the Grand Wine Experience event, they featured hundred kinds of drinks from other distributors and co-wine merchants, so if you are there, you will loose your mind because you are given a chance to taste and appreciate all kinds of wine and spirits.

I was there with my wife Lace and we were moved by the glamorous and high impact of the event, we were so ready for it and wore our wine drinking experience hat and get to appreciate all kinds of wine available at the Grand Wine Experience. Thanks to Sofitel Manila and some wine merchants, because it took me 4 years to learn and appreciate about wines, and thanks to them teaching us at a wine appreciation class and wine dinner session, and also my big thanks to The Philippine Wine Merchants, because of them I almost miss this big event in my life and I should be a “panata” and hope to be there again next year.

So here are some scenes from the Grand Wine Experience.
