Brewing in China 2008-9
A fruitful venture Several varieties of fruits grow abundantly in teh Philippines, and many of them have a high sugar content that makes them excellent for fermentation into specialty wines. Businessman Elbert Pigtain is not the first Filipino to venture commercially into fruit wines. What differentiates the 47-year-old entrepreneur is that he set out to use only wild and naturally grown fruits for his wines, showcased them in sensuous stoneware, and that he was able to export his products within four years of starting his "exhilarating experiment".

Cheers!
