It’s no-holds-barred wine tasting all week in Hong Kong.
The Vinexpo trade show opened yesterday at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai and one glance at the floor map and you can see the show has grown in scale from 2010.

The 3-day trade event was bigger and bolder than ever.
So much wine so little time!
This year’s Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair was as fantastic as ever with partner country Italy really bringing a taste of their country to Hong Kong with their giant pavilion that really set the stage for the entire event.
The HKTDC will announce visitor numbers soon and we’ll update the story here but we enjoyed the amazing Gala Dinner put on by Italy and the numerous seminars and tastings put on across the 2-day trade, 1-day public event.
While it’s nice that the organizers of the Wine and Dine Festival, HKIWSF and Wine Future decided to plan their events one after another so people could stay for all of them – it’s still turned into a marathon of wine, food and spirits for almost 2 weeks.
