You may have heard of La Mancha in Spain because of Don Quixote’s story. The Castilla-La Mancha region is actually home to the finest Spanish wines, as it is the world’s largest wine growing region.
Several wine brands were featured in a wine tasting event at the Makati Shangri-La by La Camara (a.k.a. Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines), IPEX Castilla-La Mancha and Perspectiva Asia Ltd.
Fifteen (15) of the best Castilla-La Mancha wine companies participated in this event for all wine retail and media attendees.
Here’s the invitation I got via email:
Registration was open for both invited guests and walk-ins. After having my name verified at the registration desk, I was given this event booklet where you can write notes about each wine offered during the free tasting.
The booklet contains complete facts regarding Castilla-La Mancha as the place to be for the best food and wine in Spain, plus company information per event participant.
I went to the event to look for a bottle of wine with low alcohol content for myself and my Mom (May is my birth month, plus Mother’s Day was a few weeks away).
I found more than one brand, and in the video below I included the percentages (ABV) that served as my guide in making that perfect choice.

Well, here’s the best part: I didn’t have to decide as one of the exhibitors gave me a free bottle of wine with cork opener!
Up to this day, Mom and I have this Friday wine nights. She likes the taste of this sample wine as much as I do.
