In the Philippines, Spain meets China in the kitchen!

Tocino comes from Spanish where it means bacon.

In the Philippines, Tocino means sweet-cured meat (pork, chicken or beef).

Pork Tocino is typically served with fried eggs and rice for breakfast.

The sweet and sour taste calls for a rich white or a fruity and light red wine. Some residual sugar will help to match the sweet ingredients.

Pork meat also pairs well with rosé and bubbles.

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.
