Red, white, orange, rosé, vertical, champagne, New World, and Old World are just a few terms to describe our favourite grape-fermented drink. With Hong Kong removing all their wine duties in early 2008, our city has become wine mad, described commonly as “Asia’s wine hub”. Wine bars are plentiful here.
