~ Let China sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world – is this true for Chinese wine? ~
The HKVCA is holding its annual wine tasting event on November 19, 2018, hosted by Marcus Thompson and with instruction by Master of Wine, Jeannie Cho Lee. Ms. Cho Lee was appointed Professor of Wine at the Polytechnic University's School of Hotel and Tourism Management in 2012 and in 2015 helped launch the school’s master of science degree in International Wine Management. She began hosting a weekly wine program on TVB, In Vino Veritas, in early 2014.
  
The focus of the evening will be an examination of the old saying “let China sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world” and whether this applies in the context of Chinese wines. Participants will taste six Bordeaux blend red wines. Three will be from China, one will be from Bordeaux, one from California and one from Chile. The tasting will be semi-blind i.e. everyone will know the names of the six wines but the actual tasting will be blind. The wines will be tasted in pairs – one from China and one from outside of China. The participants will then be asked to guess which of each of the pairs is the Chinese wine.
  
Those who would like to attend are strongly encouraged to secure their places now to ensure they don’t miss out on what will undoubtedly be a terrific event.
