We are thrilled to be able to now launch The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium 2023 programme. This intense, but varied collection of masterclass, walkaround, and dinner events, combine fun with the chance to gain or to deepen your understanding of Burgundy. We are flying leading Burgundy critic and writer Allen Meadows (and 'Mrs. Burghound' too!) to Hong Kong, as well as a number of Burgundy producers, some familiar, some new.
There is much to learn about this complex yet rewarding fine wine region of Burgundy. Allen’s expertise, his complete fluency in the subject, and his ability to teach, to lead, and to moderate discussion offer much to both the novice and the experienced aficionado.
The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium ran in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, before our March 2020 programme was cancelled due to the arrival of Covid-19. So, we are thrilled to be back in March 2023! We are so looking forward to seeing you at these events!
So too are a number of Burgundy producers who are also flying in to Hong Kong to join us. We look forward to welcoming Antoine & Prune Amiot (Domaine Amiot-Servelle), Didier Amiot (Domaine Didier Amiot), Jean-Luc Pépin (Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé), Christophe Perrot-Minot & Marit Lindal (Domaine Perrot-Minot), Catharina & Guilhem Sadde (Les Horées), Bastian Wolber (Laisse Tomber), and Maxime Ullens (Domaine de Marzilly, Champagne).
Many of these events are very small in scale, so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Act now and contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or +852 2803 0753 for booking.
The finale event for The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium this year is the Gala Dinner. This dinner is where we really let our hair down, celebrating in the traditional Burgundy “paulée” style, all of us attending sharing bottles, magnums, jeroboams (!), from our cellars for old friends at our table, and new friends around the room.
The dinner exemplifies the generosity, friendship, and natural sense to share the passion for these wines with others, so join The Fine Wine Experience team, Erica & Allen Meadows and Burgundy vignerons & vigneronnes: Prune & Antoine Amiot-Servelle (Domaine Amiot-Servelle), Didier Amiot (Domaine Didier Amiot), Jean-Luc Pépin (Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé), Catharina & Guilhem Sadde (Les Horées), Bastian Wolber (Laisse Tomber), Maxime Ullens (Domaine de Marzilly - Champagne), for this very special night.
This dinner is a BYO Burgundy event - the chance to pull from the cellar your special bottles, mature rarities, and - especially - those large format bottles that were just made for nights like this. (Of course, if you need help, we have plenty of Burgundy available for you to purchase – just let us know and we’ll be sure to have you well equipped for the night). Whatever bottles (or large formats) of Burgundy wines you choose to bring to share on 25th March, we will make sure there are corkscrews, ice buckets and anything you might need to assist you to serve your wines to your fellow guests. The spirit of Burgundy’s “la paulée” is sharing, and we look forward to sharing with you too.
