I had chance to taste below wines;

Red: Lafite Cabernet, Margaux, Amarone della Valpolicella from Italy(Corvina grape based blend), Chateauneuf-Du-Pape, Rioja from Spain, Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River, Carmenere from Chile

Especially I liked these 3 wines. All great value for quality.

  1. Las Huertas Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 from Barons de Rothchild (Lafite) -very fruity       black and red fruits aroma red wine from Colcagua Valley, Chile.
  2. 2014 Le Margaux du Chateau de Malleret-Merlot based blend with aroma of dark cherry, plum, smoke and leather.
  3. Chateau des Graves 2012- aromatic Sauvignon Blanc from Graves in Bordeaux

 

There was no sale for bottle at the site but we could order separately from the wine shops.

It was very fun night tasting many kinds of wine from different countries.

I also drank a glass of Hennessy whiskey cocktail.

I woke up hangover this morning but it was all worth it..

Wine Rally @ Repulse Bay in Hong Kong Report ① Atmosphere

Yesterday, I went to join the Wine Rally event with my friend in Repulse Bay, Hong Kong.

The venue was outside of the Verandah restaurant.

Wine Rally is a outdoor wine tasting event and I heard that it’s hold once a year.

We had chance to taste over 60 wines from old world and new world together with Hennessy whiskey cocktails.

Also there were delicious buffet including oysters, pan-fried foie gras, BBQ, cheeses, and desserts.

They had raffle draw as well at the end as well.

The atmosphere was great with ocean view and light breeze.

Everyone was chatting, relaxing and enjoying nice wines and foods on Friday night!
