A BRAND-NEW LINE-UP OF 250+ REFERENCES, (MOST ARE FIRST-TIME RELEASES IN H.K.)

TASTE JAMESSUCKLING.COM’S WINE OF THE YEAR AND MANY OTHER AWARDEES

____

Join us for the 2022 edition of our annual global wine showcase “GREAT WINES OF THE WORLD” organized over the course of two days at the Grand Ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong.

The Trade & Industry Grand Tasting will present an all-new and exciting line-up of important wine producers and their current market releases. Many of the featured producers made it on the 2021 JamesSuckling.com Top 100 Wines of the Year list – you don’t want to miss those!

All of the producers and/or wines available to taste are completely different to our 2021 line-up, and all represent outstanding quality having achieved top scores of 92+ points by James Suckling and his team of tasters – with the majority rated at 95 – 98 points!

This is one of Hong Kong’s best and most looked-forward to wine tasting event series throughout the year, and a must-attend tasting for members of the wine industry.
