Beaujolais Wine-Dinner Pairing at Spiral's La Veranda | Beautiful Life

The merry month of November is, for the French, a wine celebrating experience.  The welcoming of the Beaujolais Nouveau, or new wine from the Beaujolais Region is celebrated simultaneously around the world. On this occasion, vineyard owner of P. Ferraud et Fils, Monsieur Yves-Dominique visited Manila to launch his wines in partnership with Le Cellier French Wine Selection and French chain hotel, the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.

Yves-Dominique Ferraud and Bernard Flour.

Monsieur Ferraud's short visit highlight was the wine-pairing dinner held at the classy La Veranda, a section within the Spiral Restaurant.  Spiral is renowned for its widest array of buffet found in Asia.  It consists of twenty-one food ateliers, from Japanese, to Morrocan to French cuisine, dizzyingly showcasing a variety of food one has the privilege to indulge in.  The wines from the Beaujolais region consists of eleven different varieties of red and white wines.

The wine-pairing dinner was organized by the tandem of Monsieur Bernard Flour and his lovely Filipina wife, Jorinda, who is also the Marketing Manager of Le Cellier.  Mr. Flour demonstrated the qualities of each wine and told the guests which wine goes best with each dish.  We had the liberty to indulge and taste almost all the wines, and taste the difference when combined with the right food.

Spiral is the best buffet place which offers the best wines from the Beaujolais region of France, thus it is truly worth every centavo spent, and the trip down this bay side hotel in the heart of Manila is a glamorous indulgence.  La Veranda boasts of a cozy ambience and the service is impeccable, as expected in a five-star luxury hotel.
