JamesSuckling.com joins forces with Hong Kong Tatler – the leading luxury magazine in Asia – to create the Great Wines of Italy event on December 4 and 5 in Hong Kong at the Island Shangri-la Hotel. The two-day event is the largest showing of premium Italian wines in Asia. Each winery attending was selected for its history of producing outstanding wines. In fact, all the wines poured during the event have outstanding reviews – 90 points or more.
The event begins on December 4 at 3 pm exclusively for wine trade members with a Grand Tasting where participating wineries pour three different wines in the Shangri-la ballroom. At 5 pm, the doors are opened to the general public.
The following day, an exclusive invitation-only Gala Dinner with wine connoisseurs, socialites, collectors, and winemakers will be held in the Shangri-la ballroom. The dinner includes a seven-course Chinese dinner prepared by Summer Palace restaurant Michelin one-star chef Ip Chi Cheung. Each winery will pour two wines at its respective table. Award-winning British vocalist Isabel Suckling will perform during the dinner, including her single this year from the late Robin Gibb and his son’s album Titanic Requiem.
