3. Bugnay Wine

The Bugnay wine tastes really good. It looks like a typical red grape wine, but the taste is definitely something different. Made from the Bugnay fruit, little red circular fruits that turn a deep red color when ready for harvesting, this wine has the right amount of sweetness and sourness with just enough alcohol. It also has a berry aroma and flavor that is easy to love.

2. Calamansi Wine

The Calamansi wine, on the other hand, presents a different taste. It seems smoother and tastes lighter than Bugnay. Definitely not a hint of Calamansi, but you can taste a bit of its citrus flavor. Every household in Sanchez Mira has a Calamansi tree, and this wine is one proof of its abundance in the town.

1. Suman sa Latik
