NEW MARKET: Philippines
An evening event to promote Clarence Dillon Wines took place at the Writers Bar of the Fairmont Hotel, a hotel complex in the Makati business district that also includes the Raffles. Taken altogether, the complex has seven restaurants and banquet rooms. 150 people from a variety of backgrounds attended the launch of Clarendelle, an event totally in keeping with the theme of the evening since this was also the opening day of the two partner hotels, the Fairmont and the Raffles. Professionals from the hotel industry (Sofitel, Peninsula, etc.), managers from major firms (Mercedes, Philippines Equity Venture, etc.), and wine lovers were able to sample the Clarendelle family of wines in a refined atmosphere with a decor reflecting the aromas of the wines they enjoyed: strawberries, cherries, bananas, citrus fruit, etc. This evening on the 7th of November 2013 was mentioned in one of the country’s national newspapers and will undoubtedly be long remembered in Manilla.
