In partnership with House of Morande known to be makers of great wine from Chile, a Wine tasting night was held at Seda Hotel.
Last June 11, 2018, we were invited to witness and be part of this wine tasting event that became a memorable night.
Export Manager for Asia, Gonzalo Montes graced the program by briefly introducing the great variety of wines with superb quality that House of Morande produced throughout the years. He also explained what type of food is best when combined with each of this wine and the best time to drink it.
Mr. Gonzalo further said, “With a plan to make great and innovative wines of the highest quality with grapes from vineyards in Chile’s most interesting wine valleys.”
Moreover, the company was among the first to adopt new enological practices such as using concrete “eggs” and going back to using the traditional-but-forgotten large oak foudres for producing reserve-level-wines.
During the event, some of the wines featured were: Morando Pionero Reserva Sauvignon Blanc; Morande Reserva, 1:1 Merlot; Morande Pionero Sonador Chardonnay; Morande Reserva, 1:! Cabernet Sauvignon; Morande Pionero Reserva Pinot Noir; Morande Gran Reserva, Cabernet Sauvignon; Morande Pionero Reserva Merlot, and; their house specialty and premium wine House of Morande.
Luckily, these wines are now available at Misto Bar starting this month of June.
Executive Sous Chef Bang Sibala and her culinary team prepared delightful cocktails to go with the wines.
What’s on the menu: Cheeses (Emmental, Danish Blue Cheese, Gouda), Artisan Breads, Jalapeno and Cheddar Croquettes, Scampi Alfredo Pizza, Baked Truffle Fries with Grated Parmesan, Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites and Angus Roast Beef short plate.
