Attendees savored the flavors of Europe and the US, indulging in sips of prosecco and chardonnay

In April 2024, The Travel Club+, a leading travel and lifestyle brand, unveiled its flagship store at Shangri La Plaza in Mandaluyong City, offering a unique shopping experience. In addition to a diverse selection of products, the brand introduced a customization area and a cozy coffee corner for patrons to relax in. On May 31, 2024, the venue played host to a wine tasting affair in collaboration with Elevaj Wine Experts, treating loyal customers to a journey through the vineyards of Italy, France, and the US.

Leading the festivities were Oly Ruiz, a Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 3 expert, and Jackie Go, a certified expert from Elevaj Wine Experts holding a WSET 2 certification. The journey commenced in the Old World, with guests’ glasses filled with prosecco, followed by the robust flavors of Chianti, a perfect accompaniment to various dishes. Next, France took the spotlight with the refreshing Provence rosé, a beloved choice, succeeded by the luscious and dessert-friendly Monbazillac. Attendees also delighted in New World selections such as the versatile chardonnay and the rich cabernet sauvignon.
