Impressions of the German Wine Day in Hongkong

On the occasion of the seventh station of the Handmade-Worldtour in Hong Kong, the Direktorenhaus together with the DTZ – German Tourism Center invited to the “German Wine Day”. On March 3, 2017, the doors of the UMAG – Museum and Art Gallery opened in the heart of Hong Kong for a presentation and tasting of German top wines.

German top wines are becoming increasingly popular in Asia. They are among the very high-priced wines and are appreciated for their first-class and reliable quality. Imports of German wines to Asia are still relatively small, but demand is growing continuously. From red wine to Riesling – there are more and more enthusiastic wine drinkers. And if you take a look at the size of the continent and its population density – China and Asia are extremely exciting sales markets for German winegrowers. The “German Wine Day” brought this new reciprocal interest into a stylish setting. Here the Chinese guests had the opportunity to sample wines from selected top German wineries in a personal ambience and to get in touch with winegrowers and sommeliers.

Weinmanufaktur, Weingut Künstler from Rheingau, Weingut Johannishof, Weingut Domtalhof, Weingut Bergdolt, Weingut K.F.
