‘Ultimate Vindulgence': 2010 Hilton Wine Fair set for November 6

Some wine events in Beijing offer such good value that they qualify as “must go“. In terms of free tastings, the best are the twice-yearly wine fairs at Carrefour (the next one is tomorrow: see here for details). In terms of portfolio tastings, the best is the annual “Taste of Nations” organized by Torres China. And in terms of public events that bring together the city’s wine distributors, the best is the Hilton Food and Wine Experience, now in its thirteenth year. This year’s event is on November 6, lasts seven hours, and as usual will feature hundreds of wines and a buffet–for only RMB230. See the poster below for more details.

  1. wish they’d downplay the food part, went last year and there was basically no food on offer, not a good idea considering people are drinking for 7 hours. That said, at least this year the buffet is lunch or dinner, hopefully it will prevent the stampede that goes on at night when the buffet is about to open up…

  2. Much more food options this year, Hilton Beijing will be offering samplers of it’s Rib of Beef from the fantastic One East Sunday lunch, Hilton Beijing Wangfujing’s showcasing it’s Fizztastic brunch and the brand new Hilton Beijing Capital Airport it’s Chinese restaurant plus much more.
