South African Wines Shine at Planet Grapes

South African Wines

Planet Grapes leads the wine and dine segment with an innovative concept that aims to integrate the culture of wine in the Filipino dining habit. The idea of wine with Filipino food isn't all to common, but paring it with Philippine street-food now that's something worth experiencing. 

Discover Diverse Flavours of South African Wines.

Anthony Budd of Diverse Flavours visited Planet Grapes, Shangri-La Plaza for a night of South African wines and the stories behind each bottle.
