I wasn’t planning to go to the Tastin’ France 2018 event held in Spices, Manila Peninsula.
I easily give in to specific peer pressure (like the promise of learning about new wines while sampling them, of course!), however. So, at the invite of one of my friends Rodolphe of G.H. Martell (who people might remember from my articles on Hong Kong wine expos), I decided to drop in.
Organised by Business France (the national agency that “promotes France’s companies, business image, and nationwide attractiveness as an investment location”), Tastin’ France featured wines from major wine producing regions of France (Champagne, Rhône, Bordeaux, etc).
