Taste the Taste of Typical Filipino Wine

The Philippines is not also the best wine producing country in the world. The reason is of course because the soil conditions in this island nation are not suitable enough to grow grape varieties which will be processed into wine. However, this fact has not stopped the Filipinos from processing their country’s produce into liquor.

Some argue that the meaning of “wine” specifically describes liquor made from fermented grapes. Meanwhile, other people refer to liquor made from ingredients other than grapes (other fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs) as “country wine”.

Whether a non-wine drink should be called wine, I don’t care about all of that. I just want a drink now. Since I have three types of non-grape wines at home, I thought there’s nothing wrong with tasting.

Before we begin this experiment, it must be remembered that I am not a wine connoisseur. I’m just an average guy curious about local choices, and I think I’m pretty good at differentiating good wines from bad ones. I’m also sure there are plenty of other non-wine wine brands out there. But since there are only these three brands at home, my choices are limited to those three bottles.

Soursop Wine

I shopped for this soursop-based wine at an online store. The reason I chose it was purely because the product was at the top of the search. This is also one of the “white” wines I drink, although if I’m being honest, it’s not as white as your average white wine. The color of this wine is slightly yellowish like beer. The scent is really strong too.

Mangosteen Wine

I like to eat mangosteen, that’s why I really can’t wait to taste this wine. The dark color is similar to real red wine. I can’t find the right words to describe it, but it tastes almost like soursop wine. While soursop wine is like mango, this wine has a fruity cranberry taste.

The alcohol level is also 14 percent, and I get drunk after a few sips. It tasted so good that I thought mangosteen wine would be perfect for sangria.

Wine Buni

I want to trigger a confession: this wine was given to a friend. He often advised me how important it is to be honest. Therefore, I will not lie to please him. I too have been pretty drunk, and usually drunk people are much more honest than they are sober.

Buni or bignay is a type of wild berry that usually grows in mountainous areas. The color of Buni wine is almost no different from red wine. This drink even has leg that drips slowly down the glass. I’m a layman, so I don’t quite understand what that means for non-grape wines.

This wine is really tempting. The texture may be a bit runny and more like water, but the taste is delicious and bold. Even though there is a touch of fruity, it doesn’t taste like fruit juice. The combination of fruit and alcohol flavors is even more unified, aka not separated like the two previous wine models.

In essence, the taste of this drink is really steady. Seriously. I say this not because I want to please the partner who gifted it. I don’t know what percentage of alcohol is in this wine, but right now I think I’m really high.

Who First Discovered Wine?

In 2011, wine presses and fermenting urns from some 6,000 years ago were discovered in a cave in Armenia. The world’s earliest non-wine-based wine is believed to be a fermented alcoholic beverage made from rice, honey and fruit that was discovered in China and dates back to roughly 7,000 BC.
