The most expensive wine dinner in Hong Kong is here – At $13,800 per head it will offer 14 different wines from the 19th Century


The Fine Wine Experience has announced what promises to be a truly memorable wine dinner in Hong Kong that will spotlight 14 rare bottles from the 19th century. The Drinks Business stated that two of these bottles come from Burgundy’s estate Bouchard Père & Fils in Beaune, while another two hail from Bordeaux. Also on the menu are wines that are over 100 years old from Château Latour and Château d’Yquem.

Some of the wines on offer are even rarer and covetable for the reason that they were created before phylloxera (a pest that affects grapevines) required French vines to be grafted to American rootstock (which is more pest resistant). Pre-phylloxera wines are considered to be superior and since they can never be re-created, they hold a special place in the minds of wine connoisseurs.

As for the food, Chef Eric Raety will provide a menu with some elements inspired by the 19th Century. Unfortunately, passes to this dinner are sold out despite the HKD 108,000 price tag. But the company has stated that they hope to be able to offer more such experiences in the future. Check out all the wines on offer below:
