Get hungry, folks: The annual CCB (Asia) Wine and Dine Festival returns this weekend (27-30 October) at the Central Harbourfront, bigger and better than before.
This year you’ll be able to sample delicious wines, spirits, craft beers and scrumptious bites from more than 410 booths, across five different themed zones at the festival.
The $30HKD admission gets you in the door, but a Classic Wine Pass for eight tokens ($200HKD) already includes admission, and token top-ups are only $20HKD thereafter. If you want access to the Grand Pavilion for a more exclusive selection of wine and food—think dishes from Bibo, Little Bao, Mercedes Me, The Ocean and Tri—a Grand Wine Pass sets you back $600HKD for eight tokens.
Held in the special events Tasting Room, the Master Chef Dinner on Saturday 29 October, 7-10pm is well worth the extra ticket price: $1,688HKD for a six-course menu put together by award-winning chefs, featuring dishes from establishments such as three Michelin-starred T’ang Court and Bangkok’s Gaggan, two-time number one of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Gaggan's famous fish-based dish, "Charcoal"
Also on the Saturday, those with sweet tooths will want to take note: $688HKD will get you into the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong’s Dessert Garden, where you’ll get to feast on favourites like the 1963 Mandarin Cheesecake, mini scones with rose petal jam and more; all paired with free-flow bubbly!
Cocktails from The Woods
More into cocktail pairings? $700HKD gets you eight artisan cocktails from some of the best bartenders and bars in town thanks to this year’s new collaboration between World Class Cocktails and Moët Hennessy Diageo, the “World Class ‘Street Food Jam’.” You’ll be able to have eight cocktails paired with eight street food dishes from The Woods, Origin, Zuma, Bibo, Mr and Mrs Fox, Brickhouse, Jerry Maguire, and Bao Bei.
