I am a fan of my own sale finds. Usually whatever I post here, I try my best to find time and check them out. So, recently, I posted Wine Depot’s 30% case sale… and I think it’s just perfect now that it’s rainy season already. 😉
I swung by Wine Depot yesterday afternoon to get my own case of wine. Of course, I did not come unprepared. For the past two days, I have been googling about wines–their types and the countries that produce what kind of wine and all. The book I bought on sale from National Bookstore a couple of years ago came in handy as well–it’s entitled “I don’t know much about wine, but I know what I like.”
I carefully picked each bottle and got myself a couple of French Beaujolais (fruity reds), Argentinian Malbec (red), Californian Cabernet Sauvignon (red), New Zealand Pinot Gris (white), Australian White Shiraz (rose), and some sparkling variety. Each bottle is in the range of Php 640.00 – Php 680.00
I love that the staff in Wine Depot Greenhills (Missouri st.) are friendly and really helpful. Since I’m a novice wine drinker, I asked them if the bottles I picked are okay…or if there’s a better alternative for what I picked. They were able to explain each bottle I picked and left me reassured that I picked the right ones. 😉
I was so happy with their customer service that I picked up an additional bottle of rose wine just for the heck of it.
My total bill was around Php 5,000 ++ which is from an original of about Php 7,500 ++
Not bad at all 🙂
