ThinkWine, led by the seasoned French sommelier Romain Loriot is introducing brand-new wine and food pairings to the heart of SoHo in Hong Kong, which will take place on afternoons and evenings starting from September 2022 onwards.
With close to 600 wines from 1947 to 2021, the extensive “Chateau to Table” wine menu at ThinkWine showcases a rare diversity of wine terroir, appellations and vintages rarely found in Hong Kong. The establishment takes great pride in its collection from France’s Burgundy, Rhone Valley and Loire Valley regions.
Guests will taste and experience wines from countries such as Australia, Italy, Spain and Germany, as well as from less-represented countries such as Lebanon, Morocco, South Africa, China, and more. ThinkWine now also carries Barolo and Barbaresco, the King and Queen of Italian wine. Historically the most important wine regions of Italy, both northern regions produce wines with Nebbiolo grapes.
