Midas Hotel and Casino holds Wine 101

Last August 31, 2019, Midas Hotel and Casino conducted an introduction to wines. Guest Speaker and Philippine Wine Merchants Area Sales and Marketing Manager Jorge Jordana Joseph led the activity.

Every quarter, MRC members are treated to a fun, interactive learning activity on all things about Midas Hotel. The event started with a short talk about wines – what are the different types, how each type varies, what are the wines’ characteristics and aroma, and many more.

Thanks to the detailed walkthrough on the basics of wine, we learned to identify the best- tasting ones based on our personal preferences

We got to sample four (4) types of wine, along with an assortment of hors d'oeuvres.  And just like in every  is twine tastingo activity, each one of us were asked to identify  enough flavors to have a personal assessment of the wine. We learned the best way to taste the wine, and what look for while drinking it. What makes a wine good really depends on a variety of things!

Joseph adds that one shouldn’t stick to the wine-food pairing rule we used to know: reds are for meat-based food and whites are for seafood dishes. Rather, one should be adventurous when it comes to food and wine pairing.

“Don’t get stuck on traditional food and wine pairings. It’s okay to play and explore,” he shared. Along with this, he gave a list of different seafood and meat dishes that can be paired with red and white wines. The interactive activity also welcomed questions from the guests. 

Featured activities like Wine 101 is just one of the perks of MRC cardholders. Last quarter, MRC members were invited to join a Baking 101 activity, where the guests learned all things about baking from Midas Hotel and Casino’s Pastry Chef Rachel Cacapit-Joven.
