A grand wine experience in Cebu

Ida Joseph, Riza and Luke Yuhico, Hans and Carol Sy

Good wine is one of life’s greatest pleasures and enjoying a glass of wine whether you are a novice or a connoisseur  can be an uplifting  experience.

The choice of wine on offer has never been so good, with the shelves in the supermarkets and wine shops getting bigger every year. And what’s really nice is that there is plenty of decent wine  to drink even at low prices.

Seventeen years ago,  the Joseph brothers,  Bobby, Ralph, Raymond and Ronnie of the Philippine Wine Merchants, one of the biggest distributors of wines and spirits in the country,  founded the Grand Wine Experience (GWE), to increase  local awareness and knowledge  about wines and spirits. Since then the annual affair has grown to thegrandest wine event in Southeast Asia.

Dubbed as Degustation, the 17th GWE  held at the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel brought together winemakers, wine connoisseurs, eonophiles, celebrities , dignitaries and wine enthusiasts. With a selection of  over 500 outstanding wines and spirits complimented by  a fantastic buffet,  guests enjoyed  the finest wines from Chile’s First Ultra Premium Winery — Montes, to the world-renowned Torre vineyard and winery; Australia’s oldest family owned vineyard, Yalumba and New Zealand’s Monkey Bay to name a few.
