2021 Old Manila Wine Dinner Series Continues

The 2021 Old Manila Wine Dinner Series continues, featuring Old Manila Chef de Cuisine Allan Briones creating a lovely five-course degustation menu paired with wines from Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery on Wednesday, July 20, at The Peninsula Manila’s signature fine dining restaurant Old Manila. Price per person is P12,000, inclusive of taxes.

This will be the second time this year that Chef Allan Briones is collaborating with an award-winning vineyard and winery, and creating a dinner around the fruit of the grape. Chef Allan and his culinary team will prepare a post-summer meal using fresh seasonal ingredients that highlight the culinary strengths of Old Manila’s culinary team.

During the five-course dinner, select fine wines and Champagnes will be paired with each course. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to “meet” Spottwoode Estate President and CEO Beth Novak Milliken who will be streaming live from Napa Valley, as well as Chef Allan and his team and ask questions about the wines and dishes they will be enjoying. 

The menu is reflective of Old Manila’s attitude, culinary innovation, and support of local businesses, which includes dishes such as a Goats Cheese and Crab Tart which uses artisanal goats cheese crafted in Butuan and crabs harvested from the waters off the coast of Sulu. 

Also on the menu, a Primavera Truffle Risotto, Mediterranean Dry-aged Lamb Burger on a Rosemary Brioche, Wagyu Parmentier with Potato Textures, and Dark Chocolate and Orange Crémeux.
