Scene City | Seda Abreeza features House of Morande in Wine Tasting Night

DAVAO’S urban lifestyle hotel hosted a wine tasting event with House of Morande – makers of great wine from Chile.

Jun. 11, 2018, a day before the 120th Philippine Independence Day, was a good night for wine lovers of Davao City, as Seda Abreeza and House of Morande partnered in a wine tasting event matched with perfectly good cheeses and cocktails by Misto’s culinary team.7

Gonzalo Montes, Export Manager for Asia says House of Morande started in 1996 “with a plan to make great and innovative wines of the highest quality with grapes from vineyards in Chile’s most interesting wine valleys.”

Furthermore, the company was among the first to adopt new ecological practices such as using concrete ‘eggs’ and going back to using the traditional-but-forgotten large oak foudres for producing reserve-level wines. They were also the first winery to produce a late harvest wine in Chile and the first recognized as 100% sustainable.6

Some of the wines featured in the event included: Morande Pionero Reserva Sauvignon Blanc; Morande Reserva, 1:1 Merlot; Morande Pionero Sonador Chardonnay; Morande Reserva, 1:1 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.
Montes highlighted each of the wines in his presentation, thoroughly explaining what best matches with it and when it is best to drink. These wines are also available at the Misto Bar.

Guests were also given delightful cocktails to go with the wines from Misto’s culinary team led by Executive Sous Chef Bang Sibala. 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 were on the menu, along with the hotel’s signature Angus Roast Beef short plate.
