Winery Philippines (Winery.ph) curates and sells the best quality, value for money wines in the Philippines through our online wine marketplace, launched in 2017 by a group of passionate wine lovers, who wanted to drastically improve access to good quality wine for Filipinos.
We are pioneering the discovery of wine for the Filipino wine drinkers through our world class digital content and curation designed to empower our customers to discover wine, by providing easy to digest product information that is contextualised for the Filipino wine drinker.
Winery.ph is committed to democratising the wine category, making good wine affordable for more Filipinos, who can be put off by the prevailing high prices to ensure a quality bottle, or else resorting to cheap but mediocre options to avoid ‘selection risk’. Winery.ph by contrast does not list mass-produced, factory made wines, but instead focuses on lowering the prices of quality wines that might cost 10-20 USD abroad, and getting these to consumers in the Philippines for the same price.
