ABOUT US

Kat Lee (Senior Wine Specialist)

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Kat spent her first few years in the field of financial planning and robotics technology after graduation. To improve her Mandarin, she moved to Beijing and studied at the Beijing Language and Culture University in 2005.

The turning point for Kat to become a wine professional is a movie called “Sideway”.  The beautiful scenes amongst the wine regions and the interesting stories behind each of the wines/ bottles encouraged Kat to start her career in this industry.  Not only has she attained lots of wonderful experience and unforgettable memory at fine wine symposiums and wine tours, she has also gained friendships she treasures most over the past 9 years.

For professional study, Kat has completed WSET Diploma in 2012, Certified of Specialist of Spirit in 2014 and taking the WSET Sake Level 3 and WSET Wine Educator Level 3 training program this summer.
 
In her spare time, Kat likes hiking, reading and watching movies. The “Sharp Peak” is always her ambition to take challenge for a decade. But MacLehose Trail No. 2 is still her best choice to go for a hike in a sunny day! Sure, she won’t forget to share the wines she likes with her friends and family at weekends. Burgundy is her favourite wine region due to its historical background, unique terroir and beautiful scenery. As she joined the company at the right time, Allen Meadows Symposium held this April offers her more in-depth understanding about the wine styles in different Burgundy communes! It was her first time to taste 14 wines from 1er cru to Grand Cru level at the same village of Chambolle-Musigny in one go. Comparing 2001 Musigny, Grand Cru, Domaine Comte de Vogue and 2001 Chambolle-Musigny, 1er Cru, Domaine Comte de Vogue side by side, which she learnt the concentration and precision of Musigny. The wines that most impressed Kat are 1990 Petrus, 2005 Meursault Coche-Dury, 2004 Vosne-Romanee Domaine Leroy and 1970 Dom. Perignon Oenotheque.
