Today marks one of the most celebrated occasions in France. It's the season of harvest! And what better way to do it but by splurging on wine, one of the country's best produce. In Sofitel, they made this an even greater experience by honoring it with French Wine Week!
We had to graze outside first for one of the ceremonies wherein a bottle of Champagne was cut with a Saber! (or in this case a huge kitchen knife) It was a show on it's own and this fine young gentleman from Sofitel poured us a glass or two.
Not to be outdone, patrons were able to do the same. They have to just pop it like so!
She was a little afraid but overall she did a pretty good job chopping off the bottle's head. Sofitel will be offering a wide array of these French wines in an à la carte menu. Weather you would want a Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Languedoc, Loire, Rhône, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila has got that and a lot more! If you saw their wine cellars and displays you'll remember France and the other countries and wouldn't think it actually existed. But really, it's the spot you just need to visit at the south of Manila. Then we went in Spiral, Sofitel's grandest restaurant!
There's real deal French guys in Sofitel that will also be teaching you a thing or two about pairing as they hold sessions of that as well. It starts today (September 7, 2013, Saturday) and will last till the end of September. You don't need to go far to celebrate with wine growers, pickers and villa owners, just book a reservation now on Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila's Spiral and you'll not only get to France in a jiffy. You'll have the same red, white or bubbly on your glass too!
For bookings or inquiries please go ahead and email them at email@example.com. Bring your friends and family. Say cheers to the weekend and celebrate French Wine Week at the place where Filipino hospitality and French luxury thrive! Stay at magnifique Sofitel Manila!
