Edgar Labella thinks of friends like wine


Edgar Labella has that talent of keeping things — and people — close.

The Cebu City mayor flexed this decades-old bottle of German wine dating back to 1961, but is still pristine in his liquor cabinet to this day. He said he got it as a gift in 2001, but has not touched the bottle even for a sip.

“Like old friends an old wine must be preserved and taken cared of,” Labella said.
