Event description


Georgian Wine Festival 2017

Hong Kong Station: Grand Tasting

Georgian wine is the rising star of China's wine market, with exports increasing 100% or more annually since 2008.

Widely considered the world’s original wine producing country 8000 vintages ago, the winemakers have a rich heritage of traditional "qvevri” winemaking techniques, and have successfully preserved the large collection of indigenous grapes. Georgian wines continually impress with extraordinary quality and unique characteristics at great price. Working closely with Chinese Government's "One-Belt, One Road" initiative, Georgian wines exported to China are exempt from the tariffs.

This summer, Georgian Wine Festival 2017 will be led by Debra Meiburg, Master of Wine. She will visit 4 Asian cities to host wine lunch, masterclass & grand tasting. Taste and discover the best of Georgian wines, and immerse yourself in this dynamic and distinctive culture, where wine lies at the very core.

In Hong Kong Grand Tasting , Debra will introduce terrior and the unique winemaking practices of Georgian wine and highlight the enormous market opportunity. More than 80 boutique Georgian wines will be showcased to a full spectrum of flavours and styles! This is the perfect chance to unearth or rediscover a plethora of unique wines more for your enjoyment or business.
