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.

Here’s a special event for all #wine retailers in the 🇵🇭 I actually attended @lacamaraph Grand Tasting 2018 to have an idea on the right kinds of wine I can give my mom this Mother’s Day…since she prefers something with low alcohol content just like me, I had to note the percentages as my reminder. I was able to try products from event participants such as @bodegatintoralba, @bodegaswinol, Grupo Terramagna, @vinicoladecastilla and Bodegas Camino Alto (brands that also sell #organic wines) Swipe left for their contact details.🍷🥂🍾 #winetasting #activesocialph #wheninmanila #TripniTrina #thegoodlife #ladolcevita #blessed #latergram #manila #philippines #instagood #instavideo #igersmanila #igers #vino #instagrammer #video #villagersph #beavillager #thevillagersph #spanish #citylife #makeitmakati #winery #winelover #winetime #winestagram #winelovers

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!
