Cover Story: CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival

The city’s premier culinary event returns bigger and better this year as it celebrates its 10th edition, offering fines wines, gourmet local and international foods and other gastronomic treats for wine lovers and foodies alike.

The 10th edition of the 2018 CCB (Asia)

Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival takes place this month from 25 to 28 October at the Central Harbourfront Event Space and Tamar Park. Since its inception in 2009, this event has become a fixture in the city’s mega-event calendar and one that has grown enormously in size and stature. Arguably Asia’s largest festival of its kind, the event, which drew over 140,000 attendees last year, brings together lovers of food and wine, wine merchants, quality local and international restaurants and master chefs from all over the world for four days of great wine, superb food and music entertainment on the waterfront of Hong Kong’s stunning Victoria Harbour.

This year, to celebrate its 10th edition, the festival promises to be bigger and better – a bigger venue space with about 450 booths featuring beverages of all choices from single malts to single origin coffee; more wineries and more wine regions; more culinary events including wine-paring meals designed by master chefs and the chance to win special prizes through an interactive mobile game.

If you’ve never been to the festival, then you must - it’s an unforgettable gastronomic experience you won’t want to miss and will be a highlight of your visit to Hong Kong.
