Cebu City, Philippines — Last February 15, 2017 I was invited by the Waterfront Cebu Team to join the slated Wine Fest at the Gourmet Walk. It was an afternoon of pure excitement and delight since I got reunited with my friends from Cebu Blogging Community and Cebu Bloggers Society. Both organizations had been crucial in molding who I am now as a blogger.
Wine Fest: More Than Grapes
The Wine Fest was a brainchild of the Food and Beverage Manager and Assistant, Mr. Mike Gayoso and Mr. Raffy Babula. They wanted to showcase our New and Old World Wines that had been in Waterfront for the longest time. Wine suppliers participated and made us feel that we are in Europe with their vast wine choices.
Wine Fest currently ongoing at the Gourmet Walk here at the Waterfront Cebu (@waterfrontcebu) Old and new world wines currently on display here. Free tasting for the wine but bottles are on sale on retail and whole sale price. Running from 2 PM until 10 PM. Visit the Gourmet Walk today! For inquiries call 232 6888. #ViajeraCebuanaEats #WineFest #BestOfGourmetWalk #WaterfrontCebu
The Wine Fest was also a gathering of blogger friends who liked to wine and dine. I was able to meet new ones as well as bond with the old ones over ostrich and crocodile meat. It was a night of good laughter and good conversations. We were graced by the General Manager, Mr. Anders Hallden during that night.
A new favorite, Morande Wines Edicion Limitada Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile had the frutty, floral nuances that is exciting to the palate. It has a smooth and suave finish that has an underlying acidity to it. It is a wonderful pair to any red meats and accentuates it. Visit the Gourmet Walk at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino (@waterfrontcebu) to know more about these wines. The set up is open from 2-10 PM. Wines are sold by the bottle at retail and wholesale prices. #BestOfGourmentWalk #WineFest #winetasting #roadtobeingaSommelier #WaterfrontCebu
How It Began
Wine (from Latin vinum) is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes. Grapes are fermented without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Wines are not only a great companion to food but also are a great way to celebrate your day’s success. Cebu’s premier hotel and entertainment destination, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino’s Gourmet Walk lets you enjoy old and new world wines.
Wine Fest at the Gourmet Walk has wine selections for both the red and white ones. It also lets you experience the happy sensation of drinking wines. Each and everyone can enjoy this by joining our free wine tasting for selected variants. There are also selections that you can buy by the bottle to fully experience its lush and full bodied flavor. The Wine Festival is participated by the following: Philippine Wine Merchants, Ralph’s Wine, Masterchef Republic, Emperador Distillers and Titania Wine Cellars.
Visit the Gourmet Walk, Lobby Level of the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino and give in your craving. They are open daily.
