Wine Discovery: All You Can Drink Events and More

French Wine in Taipei

A few weeks ago I stopped by Wine Discovery for their all you can drink and eat party and had to go back again to learn more about the charming French wine store. They regularly sample foods from restaurants around Taipei along with their wines, and are having another event this Friday (ft. Mexican food and fresh new wines)!

(See their event on Things To Do In Taipei This May)

The bar table at Wine Discovery where you can chat and sample wines and cheeses.

A distributor, producer, and tasting bar, Wine Discovery is part of French company Invivo that has stores in China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan. I learned through Katherine, the manager and wine expert at Wine Discovery, that their research showed Asia as the 2nd biggest consumer of wines (I wonder how much I contribute to that statistic).

The great thing about Wine Discovery is that it wants to increase wine exposure in Taiwan so they plan and host multiple events a month. Out of their 50 different wines (and counting), they showcase and sample a couple at each event: from all you can drink/eat parties, art and wine tastings, to local food pairings, the small store brings in an interesting crowd and the chance to learn so much about wine culture.

The event also included several cheese boards!

The all you can drink wine event runs at 1000ntd (prepay), an amazing deal where you can try new restaurants and new wines each month. Last month (April) we went to the Middle Eastern food pairing and got to taste 6 new bottles of wines (as well as eat SO much hummus and pita bread).

As for the wines – I loved the Cordier white wine, but the Old School rosé was a special bottle – sourced from one of their favorite wineries – Maris (Languedoc, S. France). Maris doesn’t only produce award-winning wines, they’re one of the top 5 ecofriendly vineyards. The horse on the logo is the actual horse that helps them harvest and farm! Even the labels are made out of recycled papers.

Special wines from Wine Discovery – Maris is one of the most ecofriendly wineries in the world.

Their bar uses special lighting so you can clearly see the color of the wines

The cool thing about the bar is you can change the lighting from ambiance to tasting. The light helps you clearly see the color of the wine reflected on the table.

When they’re not running events, this shop is a lovely and inviting place to hang out, taste some new bottles (200ntd per glass) and talk to people. Grab a glass and order a cheese board – and don’t be afraid to ask questions – everyone I’ve met there knows so much about wine and are super friendly!

Check out their event on May 11: All you can drink wine and food from Pachuco!
