Happy Living Since 1994
Happy Living Philippines Corporation was established in 1994 by a family of wine lovers with one goal in mind: to bring quality California wine to the developing Philippine wine market. Among the prestigious Napa Valley and Sonoma County wineries the company continues to represent are Chateau Montelena, Joseph Phelps, Cakebread Cellars, Freemark Abbey and Schramsberg.
The exclusive distributorship agreement with Beringer, the company’s flagship brand, was officially announced on February 2000 at Cheval Blanc, the illustrious French restaurant of Makati Shangri-La Hotel. A few months after the Beringer launch, another feather was added to the cap with the signing of another exclusivity, this time the French classic varietal pioneers, Fortant de France and Robert Skalli. This was followed a couple of years later with the partnership with Vina Valdivieso, a prime Chilean Sparkling and Still Wine producer.
In 2016, the company embarked on a new journey by expanding its team, portfolio and business facility. On November 2017, Happy Living moved to a new home and opened its Tasting Room to answer every wine drinker’s needs. From timid newbies to industry professionals, curated tastings, wine classes, casual wine and food pairing sessions will be offered for sheer wine enjoyment or more progressive wine orientation.
In sync with its business expansion, a selection of curated Old-World labels has been recently introduced to the market. Among wineries represented are Champagne Duval Leroy, Chateau Croix de Labrie, Domaine Prieure Roch, and Domaine de Mauperthuis. Also in the horizon are the entry of more iconic producers as well as fun and easy to understand labels from Italy, France, Austrailia, and Happy Living’s forte, the United States of America.
