You Can Shop at the Wine Fair of Marketplace by Rustan's for Less Than P300
Premium wine at prices you can afford.
(SPOT.ph) Some people may find wine as one of the more intimidating drinks out there, fearful of its steep price tag. But, you can actually get bottles of red or white—or even rosé—without hurting your wallet. Whether you’re a seasoned sommelier, a wine enthusiast, or someone who simply wants to give it a try, The World of Wine, a fair organized by Marketplace by Rustan’s, is an event you shouldn’t miss.
The World of Wine is open to all. During the three-day fair, you can score up to 10% off on all bottles on sale, which means you can get a bottle for as low as P249. There's plenty to choose from, such as the Torlasco Barbaresco DOCG 2013 (P1,599), made with the finest grapes of Italy; the dry and elegant red Terre Di Pozzo Amorone Della Valpoicella DOCG 2014 (P2,499) from Italy’s Venetto region; the Humberto Canale Gran Reserva Malbec (P1,499) with strawberry and blueberry notes; and the Demazel Sweet Red (P249), a French wine that is exclusively available at Marketplace by Rustan's. There's more, so better see the selection yourself.
If you weren't able to join the event at The Grand Atrium of Shangri-La Plaza Mall last month, you can still purchase wine at discounted prices in-store at Marketplace by Rustan's branches until October 7.
As part of the fair, an event was held at The Grand Atrium of Shangri-La Plaza Mall from September 28 to 30.
Aside from the discounts on its selection of wines, The World of Wine also included a workshop where you can choose from nine sessions and learn straight from 15 winemakers on how to taste and better appreciate the drink.
