The “Autumn” Grand Tasting presents you wines from top-scoring producers and boutique wineries – first pre-release tasting in Hong Kong for many of the wines – curated by JamesSuckling.com. The tasting will feature 15 of the world’s key wine regions or countries.

All wines have scored a minimum of 90 points, with the majority scoring 95-98points, including four perfect 100-point wines.

The Grand Tasting is complemented by a series of 17 exclusive sit-down masterclasses, running from Sep 6 until Sep 25 at James Suckling Wine Central in Soho.
