Yats Wine Experience - Public Wine Tasting Events Manila Reviews
Excellent way to learn about wine and meet new friends Nov 11, 2009
Even for an avid wine enthusiast like me, it is not easy to be invited to a good wine tasting event that is not fraught with pushy sales girls or bombarded by sales pitches. My idea of a having a good time in learning about wine through a structured and well-organized wine tasting is one that is self-paced, not too expensive and well designed.
I was introduced to the Yats Wine Experience series of public wine tasting events by my good friend, Anne who evidently is quite well travelled among the wine circles. Paying p1000 got me a ticket which has five stubs on it. Obviously each stub is for one tasting.
I found out that each wine tasting event carries a different theme. Each theme is aimed at illustrating a certain point about wine. The one I attended was about older vintage wines and included wines from France that are up to 50 years old. I admit I have never tasted wine that old and I probably couldn't afford them except in a tasting like this. I think my p1000 for the ticket would probably fetch me half a glass of those things in a wine bar, do you think?
I really had a great time. I met new friends. I found out more about wine in one evening than I did for a year. It is really fun to attend a wine tasting with no sales girls harrassing you to buy something. Everybody I met enjoyed the evening thoroughly. I wish Manila has more of these, one every weekend if possible. It beats hanging out in the neighborhood bar.
