Special dinner at Punta Fuego feat. Special Spanish Arzuaga Wines

One of the perks of working in a publicity company is the chance to be part of exclusive events. I got a chance to work for the Arzuaga Dinner event at Landco Pacific's Punta Fuego. What's so special about the Arzuaga Dinner? Arzuaga Winemaker, Ignacio Arzuaga was in the Philippines to host a special dinner and introduce his highly-acclaimed wines from his Bodegas de Arzuaga collection. Mr. Arzuaga is famous not only for his wines, but his family has contributed to the tourism industry of Spain because of his special wine hotel.

According to his spokesperson, some his wine fans include David and Victoria Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Julia Roberts. Talk about A-list celebrities. A-list wine = A-list celebrities.

Now back to the dinner - - -

It was really a great dining experience. And what's best about it is that I had the privilege of meeting the president and officials of Landco properties who are also wine aficionados.
