"Vintage Pairs" Magnum Dinner at Tosca

Date: 25th July 2017
Time: 7 PM
Venue: Tosca at Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong (102/F , International Commerce Ctr., 1 Austin Road West, KLN)
Price: HKD 3,880 per seat, offered first-come, first-served, available now

Join us for a very special Vintage Pairs. We are going to celebrate this format with two special changes - just for this July edition of the event:

1) It will be a dinner.

2) All the wines will be from magnum.

What fun!

To understand 'Vintage Pairs', see below...

 

The idea is simple – I put together a tasting of 10 wines, and serve them blind. We guess where the wine is from and what it might be, reveal it, enjoy it, and talk about it. The twist is that the wines are served in pairs of the same wine. The only difference between the wine in your left glass and the wine in your right glass is the vintage. Does your guess work for both?

Here is what we served at the last 3 events –
