We have one of the most fun and interesting winemakers in the world coming to visit – Wednesday 31st August. His name is Erni Loosen of the Dr. Loosen estate in the Mosel.

 

We are going to have an evening in two parts - 

6.30-8.00pm tasting in our shop. A dozen or so people around the marble table. Erin will lead us through a tasting of his wines back to 1969.
A BYO dinner immediately afterwards just around the corner at Shelter Lounge.

The tasting is a nominal HK$600, and the dinner – which is optional – is HK$600, plus bring a bottle to share.

Why do BYO afterwards? Well, Erni is a real wine enthusiast and especially loves Rhone and Burgundy wines, and generally a broad range of wines that are bit older. So if you’d like to come to the dinner, pick out anything you think might be interesting to share. We’ll be a nice little group of wine enthusiasts.
