Project Vino believes that wine should not be limiting. In fact, it has to be encompassing from friends hanging out to experienced wine drinkers. Wine is also a great choice not just for special occasions but also casual hangouts. There is simply a type of wine for each moment.
This new location urges people to unwind, order a bottle of wine, and meet the different people who also frequent the place to share unique stories throughout their wine journey. It’s about cultivating a culture of sharing curated wines everyday to exchange knowledge and experiences. Still, if you need to just be alone with your thoughts after a hectic day, you can quietly enjoy sips of wine to relax the senses.
Curious to know about wine and food pairing? Project Vino also talks about pairing and what makes wine and certain food pair like magic. Striking a nice balance, wine elevates food as much as food elevates a wine experience.
At the launch, four different selections were offered. Personally, the La Source rosé was the best! It exudes intense hints of citrus fruits with a well-balanced crisp taste in the palate. As for white, the vibrant Chenin Blanc is a fantastic zesty choice from South Africa. There are seductive hints of lemon, honeysuckle, and white peaches, while the first sip offers a vivacious freshness, light body, and intense stone fruit and citrus. Two options stood out from the red wines. Prima from Bodegas y Vinedos San Roman incorporates a higher percentage of Garnacha in the blend and is now aged partially in large wooden vats as opposed to barrels. Habla La Tierra, on the other hand, is a tempranillo with garnet intense cherry characteristic. It has hints of tomato leaf, anise, and chamomile, evoking the land where the grapes ripened.
