At an early age, I got exposed to wine tastings & wine cellars cause my step dad was a big wine enthusiast. And when he passed away, my favorite memories stayed but the basics such as looking, swirling, smelling and tasting fermented grapes faded a bit.

It was just post college when I got to fell in love again with the classics and met with a few sommeliers. I felt like the demand for wine bars has been increasing through time and equally, their presence are seen as with the other lounge bars.

Most of these may be found in Makati & BGC. Recently, Novotel Manila Araneta Center has opened its own Wine Bar which is great news for North Hoppers. Sabor Bar de Vinos is located at the ground floor of the hotel & features a distinct collection of wines displayed aesthetically giving a feel of elegance and intimacy.

Signature Tapas & Spanish Food are found in the menu. Their tapas ranges from Vegetarian, Chicken, Beef & Pork, Cheese Tapas & Sweet Tapas. I highly recommend:

The place is very inviting and tucked in the ground floor of the hotel. The lighting and interiors are very closely acquainted and is similar to a speakeasy bar. Perfect for romantic dates or small group chats.
