Press Release   •   Nov 01, 2010 23:15 GMT

YATS WINE CELLARS held another public wine tasting session in Makati Manila Philippines on Thursday 18th November 2010  

  

Yats Wine Experience is a public wine appreciation event.  Because there are no sponsors, participants are never exposed to pushy wine salesmen or subjected to boring sales pitches and speeches.  Every event has a different theme designed to highlight a certain aspect in wine appreciation.  Although the whole point about Yats Wine Experience is really to have a wonderful time with wine and congenial company, many participants leave the event knowing more about wine.

 

Admission is p1,500 but tickets can be purchased in advance for p1,100 Inclusive of a wine-friendly buffet served by Upper East Restaurant

 

 

Format of YATS Wine Experience – YWE - Session

 

YATS Wine Cellars regularly hold non-commercial wine tasting to help wine enthusiasts expand their knowledge of wine in a most enjoyable and affordable way.  These tastings are different from other commercial tastings.  The wines from these tastings are not sponsored by a wine merchant and there are no salesmen.  You are in the company of people from all ages and all walks with one common interest – wine.

 

Tickets can be purchased in advance at a discount.  Each ticket comes with five tasting stubs.   The wines are lined up at a wine service station.  Present a ticket at this station to surrender the stubs to redeem a tasting pours (roughly 55-60ml per pour) of five wines on the line-up.

 

Someone will always be available to answer questions or discuss topics pertinent to the theme of the wines in the event.  Otherwise the event is a self-paced tasting exercise that is the most structured and economical way to sample interesting wines.

Wines of this YWE session

 

For this event, we re-visit some classic red wines of Italy.  Fine vintage wines are being discovered much to the (pleasant) surprise of the more adventurous wine enthusiasts who took the trouble to seek out new and exciting wine regions within the geographical areas commonly referred to as “the old world”.  For this particular Yats Wine Experience session, we taste and compare five major styles of red wine from Italy:

 

 

  • Barbera – Arguably the most (food) versatile wine of Italy;

 

  • Dolcetto – good reasons for why it is literally called the “sweet one”;

 

  • Nebbillo – responsible for the “king of wines and the wine of kings”;

 

  • Chianti – an internal classic, a benchmark for terroir;

 

  • Morellino – a connoisseur’s choice for wines from Tuscany;
