In the Philippines, Spain meets China in the kitchen!

Filipino Fish Escabeche is originally a Spanish recipe with a Chinese twist.

The fish is marinated and/or cooked in vinegar and spices.

The acidic marinade and the different vegetables call for a white wine with acidity and citrusy aromas.

Avoid Reds!

The high content of iron in red wines is responsible for the unpleasant Metallic Taste and Fishy Aftertaste.

Even worse if lemon and citrus are presents.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
