This year the American Express Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival runs from October 31st to November 4th in the New Central Harbourfont overlooking the iconic Victoria Harbour. This is one of the ultimate global events for food and wine lovers and a great excuse to visit Asia’s World City.

We love Hong Kong and we love to share the excitement of the city’s foodie culture. And there’s no better way to celebrate or sample the good life than by attending the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival. Organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, this annual event was named by as one of the world’s top 10 international food and wine festivals in its very first year. So it’s an event with panache.

Last year the Wine & Dine Festival attracted 188,000 people from Hong Kong, Asia and the world who consumed a whopping 32,000 bottles of wine. This year’s Wine & Dine Festival continues to reflect city’s unique global position as a premiere luxury destination by adding the Tasting Room, a new premium area where patrons can enjoy wine pairing dinners with master chefs, wine and food appreciation master classes and talks from prestigious industry experts.

In 2012 this event featured 311 wine and food booths operated by wineries from 18 countries as well as local wine merchants, which allowed people to sample wines from Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, France, Georgia, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Ukraine and the USA. And admission starts at just HK$30.

We’re going to be presenting live updates from the show so stay tuned to our blog and social media feeds. There will be lots of great insights and inspirations.
