What's On

Wines in the Valley

Grab a snifter glass and prepare your palette – the Happy Wednesday festivities on 4, 11 and 18 March are vintage evenings that belong at the heart of every wine lover’s social calendar! In addition to the rare opportunity to uncork choice reds and whites from France, Italy, Argentina, Chile, U.S., Australia & New Zealand, each party comes complete with a generous side order of on-track action! With heart-pounding races, delicious eats, thrilling games, and around 60 of the greatest wine selections from seven countries to choose from, it all adds up to three can’t-miss Happy Wednesdays!

 

 

This March, Happy Wednesday is offering racegoers a veritable United Nations of show-stopping vino. Oft-cherished French wines leverage winemaking wisdom that dates back centuries, optimally balancing many complex regional varietal flavours. Italian vinos, meanwhile, are prized for fruit-driven, full flavours that seamlessly blend grape varieties found only in local vineyards. Typified by instantly recognizable grape varietals, Aussie and Kiwi plonks are – like their countrymen – popular for their unpretentious, upfront natures. And comparatively recent arrivals to wine’s top table, Argentinian & Chilean vintages exhibit a boldness of bouquet, body and palate that are all their own.

 

 

 

Looking for the best way to learn more about the subtle differences between each varietal? Simply come along to Happy Valley Racecourse and chat with our wine booth sommeliers while you enjoy a tipple or three! Our affordable HK$100 Wine Pass offers you six 50ml reds and whites of your choice.  Don't miss out exquisite dishes from Italy, France, U.S. & New Zealand cuisines showcased at our trackside kiosks for all three Wines in the Valley parties!

And for those who are a bit slower around the course, the most creative photo will also win a pair of tickets!
