Have you ever felt out of the loop with what’s going on in Hong Kong’s wine scene?
Have you ever felt disappointed with a restaurant’s wine suggestion just cause you didn’t know how to choose one in the first place?
Have you ever had a hard time describing a fine wine you had one time just cause you didn’t know how?
I have. I have experienced all the above.
Long story short, my new love for wine blossomed during these few years when I studied abroad. Sadly I am an amateur wine lover and every time I try to be adventurous I always end up with a wine that isn’t for me. Now that I have moved back to Hong Kong, I am even more clueless. I just don’t know where to look or where to turn - I am a wine lover who doesn’t know how to quench her thirst in a foreign land.
Fortunately my lovely friend recently told me about an amazing occasion - Cyberport is holding a Wine Festival from October 25th to October 27th. It is an opportunity to mingle amongst wine lovers, appreciate fine wine and fine art side by side and learn the tricks of the trade in captivating seminars led by experts - there is even a wine and food matching demonstration where you get to taste food with selected wines! I am amazed at the variety of events that are happening at the Wine Festival! Plus all proceedings will be donated to Habitat for Humanity China. Cherishing wine and charity hand in hand…now great is that?
If you are just like me, visit http://wine.cyberport.hk. It will be fun for anyone who appreciates wine. I know I will enjoy every sip of wine at the Wine Festival :)
