Attention all Italian wine lovers! Hong Kong’s most loved and referenced Italian wine event is returning with a special 10-year anniversary edition.
Join us for a series of Grand Tastings organized over the course of two days at the Grand Ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel in the heart of Central, Hong Kong.
Featuring hundreds of top-rated wines and new releases available on the market, from famous Chiantis and Brunellos to amazing Super Tuscans, Barolos and Amarones, the Grand Tastings are a tour de force spanning all of the greatest wine producing regions, from northern and central Italy to the south and islands.
All wines have scored a minimum of 92 points, with the majority scoring 95-98 points, including FOUR perfect 100-point wines. This is an unmissable opportunity for industry professionals and Italian wine lovers in Hong Kong.
The program is complemented by a masterclass series in November at James Suckling Wine Central in Soho. Take a deep dive into current wine topics and experience one-of-a-kind tastings with our JamesSuckling.com Tasting Team. For more information and the line-up, visit www.jamessuckling.com.
