Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, in partnership with AWC Philippines, takes guests to the Mediterranean coast of Spain in a night of Spanish barbecue and cava with Codorniu All in White on the 4th of October 2019 at the Seawall Garden.
Presented in celebration of Wine Days, a month-long series of fêtes centered on fine vintages that elegantly represent Sofitel’s savoir faire, the evening highlights an exquisite collection from Codorniu, prestigious for its Spanish sparkling wine or cava. With its wealth of terroirs and diversity of blends, the world-renowned wine culture of France showcased by Sofitel allows connoisseurs to discover distinct features and taste profiles of premium vintages from the world’s most distinct wine regions.
Codorniu All in White features a hearty Spanish barbecue spread including the classic favorites jamón serrano, croquetas de jamón, ensalada mixta, paella negra, bacalhau, and porchetta to name a few, aptly paired with a premium selection of Codorniu wines featuring the flagship Anna de Codorníu Rosé. Guests are encouraged to don white chic attire for a delightful evening backdropped by the picturesque Manila Bay.
Codorníu is the world’s oldest and second-largest producer of cava and was established by a family of winegrowers dating back to the 16th century. It is the oldest family business in Spain and takes pride in its sustainable winegrowing practices and meticulously-harvested grapes that combine innovation and tradition in the cava making process.
