Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

alling all oenophiles: Hong Kong Tatler and James Suck­ling are host­ing the sec­ond Great Wines of the World Grand Tast­ing on Novem­ber 5, fol­low­ing up on the sell-out suc­cess of last year’s event. One of the cal­en­dar’s largest wine gath­er­ings, it will take guests on a jour­ney through the great wine re­gions, from Bordeaux to Men­doza, via more than 50 renowned winer­ies, many of whose own­ers and wine­mak­ers will be present. It’s a prime op­por­tu­nity to ques­tion the ex­perts and sam­ple wines from such top pro­duc­ers as France’s Château Lafite Roth­schild, South Africa’s Bouchard Fin­layson and New Zealand’s Cloudy Bay. The winer­ies share three key fac­tors that make their wines truly great: lo­cal char­ac­ter, ded­i­cated own­ers and re­li­able drink­a­bil­ity. Novem­ber 5; 6–9pm; $850 ($699 early bird); Har­bour View Ball­room, Four Sea­sons Ho­tel; james­suck­ling.com/ greatwinesworld2015
