Hong Kong Portfolio Tasting

Hong Kong Portfolio Tasting

Friday 4th December 2015
by Justerini & Brooks

Last Thursday, we hosted our annual portfolio tasting in Hong Kong. The Azure, with its stunning panoramic views of the city, was the perfect location for this spectacular event.

Our Buying Director and Hong Kong team hand-picked 50 wines from our esteemed portfolio for our guests to sample; quite the challenge given the quality of our range. It was nonetheless a great introduction to those new to Justerini & Brooks, and an excellent opportunity to enjoy some gems from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and a myriad of other regions.

We were joined by over 120 guests throughout the evening. As a special surprise for guests on the night, we opened a 6-litre bottle of 1989 Château Mouton Rothschild, which caused much excitement. The theatre of a large format never fails to impress!

The 6-litre Mouton for guests to enjoy on the evening, went down a treat. 

Our portfolio of over 3,000 fine wines is the lifeblood of Justerini & Brooks. Its outstanding diversity and quality is testament to the relationships we have with our growers, many built over generations.

Guests enjoying sampling the range of portfolio wines on offer. 

As Buyers, we travel annually to family-run domaines, estates and chateaux around the world, taking us to some of the most famous vineyards and the greatest producers.  As well as the established names, we pride ourselves on constantly seeking out the bright winemaking talent and stars of the future. It is a pleasure to host events like this and share our passion with so many wine enthusiasts.
