In the spirit of Halloween, the Foodie Adventurers and Prexy went to try a ‘Wine and Cheese Tasting’ we bought in a deal website. We were always hesitant to buy some deals in the discount websites as we had some bad experience about it. But since it was a super-deal, we bought this deal from Hues Hotel Deira as it seems to be interesting.
Most Filipinos are not really wine lovers, but we love our San Miguel Beer and Tanduay Rhum plus the Ginebra Gin. I never heard of a winery in the Philippines, the most possible reason why we aren’t into wines and we don’t know much about cheeses (except Eden Cheese of course!).
We arrived at the hotel and got impressed with the architecture of the property. The lobby looks so posh and classy, one you cannot expect from that place of Dubai. Aurora outlet is on the 5th floor overlooking Deira Corniche. It was dark, so we cannot really see much outside but the outlet was super lounge-y and comfy.
We sat by our Waitress, Dahlia and explained to us how the process goes. She told us that we will ‘taste’ 3 whites and 3 reds, and then we have to choose which bottle we will take. First white was South Africa, it was super dry, no one like it. Then there was red & white Australian, France and California. We finally settled with a Carbenet from Italy – she gave us the full bottle and 2 cheese platters!

All in all, it was an experience for us. We really do not care much on the wine, alcohol is alcohol! A bottle shared with friends will always be the best!
This is what we did last Halloween, how about you?
