Buy wine in Ortigas, Quezon City and Makati: Wines for beginners now from Yats Wine shops in Manila and Pampanga

Press Release   •   Nov 28, 2010 01:36 GMT

Choosing wines for beginners is a difficult task with the daunting responsibility of steering would-be wine enthusiasts in the right direction.  Objectives here are (1) to expose and focus the palate on the virtues of wine as compared to other alcoholic beverages, (2) to appreciate the evolvement of wine with age inside the bottle and (3) demonstrate how wine interacts with different food to deliver a drastically different result in combination.

 

Wines selected for beginners wall in the low-to-middle price range of p600 to p1,200 a bottle.   A lot of would-be wine lovers turned away from wine, some forever, because of a first encounter with an inferior wine someone bought at 300 in a supermarket thinking that this beginner can’t tell the difference anyway. 

 

Philippines wine supplier known for its line of fine vintage wines, Yats Wine Cellars was established in 2000 to address the requirement of a growing population of wine enthusiasts in the Philippines.  Yats Wine Cellars caters to the discerning client who requires these qualities in their wines:  (1) excellent value, (2) large selection of labels and vintages to choose from and (3) wines properly aged for full enjoyment.  

 

Yats Wine Cellars started off in Clark Freeport, Pampanga, an easy 90-minute drive along the North Expressway from Metro Manila.  Category one wines can be found in the cellars of the fine-dining YATS Restaurant and Wine Lounge situated inside Clark’s Mimosa Leisure Estate, just before the Casino.  Yats operates the Clark Wine Center – an independent two-storey building located on the main road of Clark Freeport.

Philippines wine supplier known for its line of fine vintage wines, Yats Wine Cellars was established in 2000 to address the requirement of a growing population of wine enthusiasts in the Philippines.  Yats Wine Cellars caters to the discerning client who requires these qualities in their wines:  (1) excellent value, (2) large selection of labels and vintages to choose from and (3) wines properly aged for full enjoyment.   These wines are divided into three catetories:

 

Category one:  Top-end vintage wine

Vintages of the greatest names in wine spanning over a century in vintages can be found on the wine list all properly rested and ready to be served.

 

Category two:  Great value vintage wine

Probably the most unique part of Yats Wine cellars, a very wide range of aged vintage wines is offered at mid-range prices of US$50 to 250 covering vintages of the last 60 years.  This also includes less famous labels and less illustrious vintages all too quickly written off by wine critics before.  These bottles represent the best value for money especially to connoisseurs of aged vintage wine.

 

Category three:  For Everyday Enjoyment

This is an area where complacency frequently occurs in wine selection because of the low price range.  YATS pays particular attention to ensure that a low price tag doesn’t necessarily mean mediocrity.  Not only so, there are constantly new offerings every month of the year to keep things interesting in the everyday drinking section.

 

Yats Wine Cellars started off in Clark Freeport, Pampanga, an easy 90-minute drive along the North Expressway from Metro Manila.  Category one wines can be found in the cellars of the fine-dining YATS Restaurant and Wine Lounge situated inside Clark’s Mimosa Leisure Estate, just before the Casino.  Yats operates the Clark Wine Center – an independent two-storey building located on the main road of Clark Freeport.  Here you can find the Category two and Category three wines. 

 

Public wine tastings are held from time to time in Clark and sometimes in Manila.  Tickets range from p500 to p1500 for these themed events that are professionally run –no wine merchants sponsorship, pushy salesmen or tacky banners to ruin the evening.  Each ticket contains a certain number of stubs that can be redeemed for a tasting pour of a wine among those on a line-up which often contains wines that are quite old and expensive.  This makes YATS Wine Tasting events the most cost-effective venue to explore new options and expand our knowledge of wine through first-hand encounters.

 

Wine Seminars have been conducted in the past and may be offered from time to time.  These seminars deal with intermediate to advanced subject matters that are aimed at providing useful and practical knowledge for the wine enthusiasts.  Topics are focused and treatment, in depth.  Most seminars include a guided tasting session after the lecture.

 

Wine-paired dinners are organized either at Y A T S Restaurant in Clark or in collaboration with other restaurants and organizers.    Private wine dinners can also be organized for groups of 14 or more.  Even Asian cuisines can be a part of a Yats Wine-paired dinner.

 

Sister company Y A T S Restaurant and Wine Lounge is one of most wine-sensitive fine-dining establishments in Asia.  B Y O (Bring Your Own) Wine evenings occur regularly for wine enthusiasts to enjoy their recent finds over a gourmet meal specially crafted to be wine friendly.  The wine list of YATS Restaurant is equally impressive and satisfying to the hard-to-please.  Mark-up is small and that makes it the friendliest wine restaurant in Asia.
