The 14th Grand Wine Experience

If you are a wine lover, this event is definitely what you are waiting for. For the 14th year , the Philippine Wine Merchants and Ralphs Wines and Spirits will once again let us experience a once in a year event.

Since its inception at the turn of the century, the Grand Wine Experience has seen itself transform from a humble gathering of wine enthusiasts into a monumental Mecca to which bon vibants, celebrities, dignitaries, top executives and members of high society make their annual pilgrimage.  Founded by the four Joseph brothers of Philippine Wine Merchants, the Grand Wine Experience is widely regarded as the most spectacular, most lavish and most anticipated wine event of any kind in Southeast Asia.

Each year, a palate playground of over 500 wines and spirits, and a buffet as magnificent as it is endless await the thousands of frothing, misty-eyed guests who, for one glorious night, can ravenously indulge themselves in the simple, the sublime, and everything in between.

Now on its 14th auspicious year, the Grand Wine Experience promises to surpass its previous feats and pageantries with its latest edition, ‘The Angel’s Share.’   There is a mystique that surrounds the ageing of wine or any other eaux de vie in oak barrels.  As these nascent libations mature over time, a small portion of the barrel’s contents surrenders itself to evaporation.  As much as 2% is lost every year and even more in warmer countries due to this phenomenon.  This not so insubstantial amount that dissipates into the ether is poetically referred to as ‘The Angel’s Share.’

In the past, The Grand Wine Experience has celebrated the artistry, science, and culture of wine.  This time, we raise our glasses to the magic.  Across the ages, wine has always been associated with the divine.  Ancient cultures and societies venerated many figures connected to the ambrosia, Norse mythology promised endless drinking in the afterlife, it was the subject of Jesus’ first miracle as well as signifies and represents is blood.  There have been countless other references that extol wine’s transcendent nature and to this day we continue to be awed by its wondrous and enduring mysteries.

This year’s edition of The Grand Wine Experience promises an endless number of reasons to celebrate, a liberation of the senses, and other worldly pleasures of unparalleled excellence.   On November 14,2014 at The Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel Manila, Newport City, we will unleash heaven on earth.
