Please join us for another gathering of the Hong Kong Wine Century Club on 14 April (saturday) at 18h00 at Tastings Wine Bar.
 
This time, the event is organised in cooperation with Cottage Vineyards, Tastings Wine Bar, and Winebuzz
 
The theme of the evening will be Italian & Greek wines.
 
In fact, these 2 countries are real treasure chests of fascinating grape varieties.  Saturday will show some wonderfule examples of some of them.
 
If you already have reached 100 grapes on your tasting list, please let me know before the end of this week so that I can prepare a certificate and so that we can welcome you on our hall of fame.  Tasting 100 grapes is no small feat and we want to congratulate you if you have!
 
You can download the list here (pdf) so that you can measure up how many you have tasted so far.
 
The club is really in the spirit of what we think about wine:  it is all for pleasure and to enjoy with friends in a relaxed atmosphere.  Saturday will be a great chance to meet like-minded wine lovers and to discover new wines, and new grapes from these 2 fascinating countries.
