There’s a booming appreciation for fine wines in Manila, a growing hunger among Manileños to know more about wines from the winemakers themselves. In the case of Menhir Salento, they introduced their Italian wines via a 4 hands wine pairing dinner with Chef Jessie Sincioco and Chef Musaro Rocco Roberto.
Vini Menhir Salento S.r.l., founded by Gaetano Marangelli in 2005, showcases the terroir of the Southern part of the Puglia Region in the extreme southeastern tip of Italy, specifically the Minervino di Lecce-Maglie-Otranto area.
Chef Roberto transports us to Puglia with a taste of Origano Osteria restaurant, owned by the Menhir Salento winery, in Minervino di Lecce.
Italian wines are designed for food pairing. Menhir Salento makes it both interesting and delightful to savor the authentic flavors of the Italian region where a particular wine was produced.
