Yats Wine Cellars
bring wine tasting into the picture for event organizers planning to hold a cocktail reception for social gatherings, product launching, a prelude to a corporate function or a variety of parties and events. Wine Catering Services offered by Yats makes hosting wine tasting parties easy and enjoyable.
The traditional cocktail reception with servers walking around the hall with trays of Champagne, wines and cocktails is getting tired and ineffective. Wine is now more than a popular alcoholic beverage not only for the connoisseurs, the rich and the famous but a lifestyle for a large community covering a wide demographics of society of all levels. Event organizers have discovered that wine tasting grabs the attention of guests making invitation much more effective and the turnout to be much stronger.
However, wine tasting events are not easy to organize. They come with a certain level of sophistication so there are many ways that a party can be spoiled if not every single details are attended to with professional care.
Yats Wine Cellars is the leading caterer for social and corporate wine parties. Having conducted dozens of public wine tastings in Manila and in Pampanga over the last seven years, the wine catering services have all but perfected the system that covers design, planning, promotion and implementation.
A typical wine tasting package accommodates 30 to 120 persons. Larger groups can also be accommodated but the design and setup have to be modified slightly to account for queue management and crowd control.
Wine Tasting Theme
Paramount to the success of a wine tasting event is a carefully chosen theme. Participants expect a wine tasting event to be not just a lot of fun but an opportunity to further their knowledge and experience in wine. The large selection of wines and a good depth of vintages dating back several decades gives Yats Wine Cellars the freedom and flexibility to offer exciting themes for every wine tasting events. Some of the themes that have won the hearts of Philippines wine lovers include
• Comparative Tasting between New- and Old-world wines
• Four decades of vintage wines from France
• Five different styles of Champagne/Sparkling Wines
• The Art of Food and Wine Pairing
• Great Wine Regions of Europe
• Comparative tasting of French, Italian and Spanish Red wines
• Tasting of Five Major White Wine Styles
• Appreciating Dessert Wine and Port
Lineup of Wines for a Tasting Event
One of the frequent banes for a wine tasting event is a lackluster lineup of wines. Guests expect to taste wines that they don’t usually see in wine shops and restaurants in Manila. Caterers must provide wines that form one of the attractions of the wine tasting event. Clients know very well that the wine caterer should be using the wines to promote the event, not the products of the caterer.

Software, Hardware and Service
Accessories must be complete. In addition to the obvious – wine tasting glasses – the caterer should arrive with decanters, wine thermometers, openers and other necessary accessories and equipment. On the software side, wine tasting notes must not be a simple extraction from the back labels of each wine. Perspective that stimulates interest and curiosity is what guests expect to read in these notes. Wine service is an art of discipline and well-practiced skills. Wrong preparation and serving temperatures can alter the demeanor of a wine, often denigrating its quality and class.
The choice of venue can be left to the client as long as it is conducive to the appreciation of wine. Service tables and a few other simple pieces of furniture and equipment are all that we need to cater successfully to a wine tasting event.
For example, smaller social gatherings of up to 50 people can be held quite comfortably in the club house of the condominium or residential subdivision. A wine themed office party can easily be organized in the conference room. Other venues that have been used to hold wine tasting in Manila include car show rooms, halls of upscale shopping malls and lobby of convention centers and theatres.
Alfresco events are a bit trickier but with ample time to prepare and set up the service stations properly, there is no reason why an outdoor wine tasting event can’t be just as memorable even here in the Philippines.
Cost of a Wine Tasting Reception
Obviously the cost can vary quite a bit according to the quality of the wines required to match the stature of the function and the sophistication and level of expectation of the guests. An average good-quality wine tasting party costs something like this:
Mobilization and Service Costs: php 15,000.
Costing of Wines: php800 to 1,000 per person
A security deposit amounting to p200 per person is required and will be liquidated against damages and losses of wine glasses and other equipment.
Advanced payment is required.
