Global Tastings begin in China


With just weeks to go until the unveiling of the Decanter Asia Wine Awards results, Decanter tastings have begun in over 60 venues around the world, including in three venues across China.

From today, visitors to the Kerry Hotel in Shanghai will be able to taste award-winning wines from the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards as part of Decanter’s Global Tastings programme, in partnership with Enomatic.

All the wines will be served in Enomatic machines, meaning wine-lovers can sample a number of wines without needing to buy the whole bottle.

In addition, wine-lovers in Hong Kong can head to Amo Eno in the IFC Mall, and Sky Lounge at the Sheraton Hotel in Kowloon, where a selection of award-winning wines will be available to taste for the next two weeks.

Later this year, The Decanter Asia Winners' Tastings programme will begin in venues across Asia following the results of the first Decanter Asia Wine Awards.

The Decanter Asia Wine Awards results will be published on on 24th October 2012. Full list of Global Tastings venues is available here.
