Their phone lines are always buzzing with customers angling for their coveted brands since 2012. Being the go-to shop for fine wines in the Central and Southern Philippines, Bibendum Wines continues to uphold their mission of offering a wide selection of quality wines from across the globe.
Their new home at the 2nd floor of Streetscape at Maria Luisa Road, Banilad now utilizes refrigerated containers and climate-controlled storage facilities, including Vinecaves. At Bibendum Wines, you can try the wine prior to purchasing with their enomatic machine, which contains 8 different kinds of wine. The first taste is free, and the succeeding tasting portions are at a minimal amount.
Guests at the opening were happy to check out how Bibendum maintains exemplary quality and ensure optimum storage and holding conditions.
With wines coming from France, USA, Chile, Spain, Australia, and South Africa, to name a few, choosing from perhaps the widest selection in Cebu may seem daunting. For those who simply do not know where to start, Bibendum provides a point system to make the selection process a lot easier. Professional wine critics have been using a simple 100-point rating to score wines, which is the quickest and most convenient way to determine the quality of wine.
Choosing good wine is made more convenient by looking at these ratings, which are indicated in Bibendum Wines’ labels. Bibendum Wines prides itself in having the best wine portfolio at the most affordable prices.
The Streetscape branch also has a small deli with the best sausages, cold cuts, and cheeses from premium shop, Santis Delicatessen to pair with your wine. An al fresco area with tables and chairs are available for those who want to enjoy their selection right there and then.
Bibendum also gives you the option to have wines delivered at your doorstep through Food Panda or their website at www.bibendumwines.com. (some story from their press release)
