Fine wines were sipped and savoured as Aspri Spirits hosted a masterclass and wine-tasting of renowned wines from the house of Sogrape Vinhos. Jakub Wierzba, director, Sogrape Asia Pacific, was there at Bungalow 9 to engage with the rapt audience who shared his passion for wines.
He took the guests on a voyage of Sogrape Vinhos’ history and shared some interesting insights about the company and its brands. This was followed by an informal session of wine-tasting. Enjoyed were Mateus Rosé and Mateus Sparkling Rosé from Portugal, Framingham Classic Riesling from New Zealand and Chateau Boldos Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile.
