My heart was full of joy when we had our 4th Wedding Anniversary last February 15th, 2011 in our native home in Makati City, Philippines. It was just a simple one which is if you were a Christian; you would know what a "Marriage Renewal of Vow" would mean. We did stand in front of our family and loved ones and a few invited guests. It was very intimate and private and it was officiated with our Pastor friend.
The ceremony didn't take that long, what was important was that we are renewing our vows as husband and wife in front of God who is the author of our life and to whom we made our vow. The event started at 3pm and lasted till 5pm which all guests and friends feasted with us as we celebrate our great day. I was fascinated with what my husband bought for a wine. It was a red wine from South of Goa named Wood Peckers St. Ann's Goa Vinko Porto. It was a 750ml bottle of red wine fermented and sweet which is good for a wedding toast. I have tasted a lot of red wines from the past and I haven't tasted such sweetness a grape would be in this wonderful and delightful red wine. The texture was smooth, it was 14% v.v. alcohol content but it was sweet symbolical to the couple who is having their wedding toast.
You may say that the red wine was like rice wine but when your tongue tasted it, the grape was just there and the smell is as good as grape which is not smoked in taste and in smell just like any other red wine that I have tasted before. I know what a good red wine is when you tasted it; it doesn’t have any after taste which is bad. I also like St. Ann’s Goa Vinko Porto wine because it was affordable, imagine 750ml for only Rs200 which is very cheap but the quality is really fine. For me, I can say that I can suggest this red wine to all my friends who were looking for a sweet celebration drink which is just fine to drink. It was light and good for ladies also and I will definitely buy for more.
