Wines to drink this summer.
Marks & Spencer may not be the first place you think of for wines but they have a wine selection that should not be overlooked. Wines sourced at Marks & Spencer have won more awards than other UK wine retailers as they benchmarked their selection against the best wines in the market.

Tersina Shieh reports about Brazilian bubblies.
I don’t think many of us have tried Brazilian wine, let alone Brazilian sparkling wine. Therefore I was pleased to be invited to the Casa Valduga tasting. It is one of the largest and oldest wineries in Vale dos Vinhedos in the south of Brazil. The climate is humid and temperate but luckily the vineyards, located at between 450m and 650m above sea level, are cooled by the mountain breeze.

Our local Master of Wine publishes the definitive guidebook.
Debra Meiburg – our favorite Hong Kong-based Master of Wine – has put together something the local wine market needs…badly, in our opinion!
Since 2008′s deregulation, Hong Kong’s wine market is as hard to chart as it is red-hot. With 40 winemakers a day sending them requests for advice, F&B professionals are bemoaning the glut of importers and wine lovers still unsure as to where to find a great Grüner Veltliner. So, to tackle this challenge the team at Meiburg Wine Media sensed a book-shaped hole in the market.

At the International Beverage Exhibition, held this July 14-16 in Shenzhen, the 2nd year the fair is running we see how the wine market is taking shape.
