Levin Dinner at The Murray hotel Hong Kong

While the vines are under snow and Bernard and the vineyard team are pruning in subzero temperatures, Mister L and I were in the much warmer climes of Hong Kong.

We launched our new vintages at Levin #Wine #Dinner with our great friend, British expat and hotelier Duncan Palmer, who hosted us at The Murray, Hong Kong @themurrayhk.

It is such an impressive transformation of an #iconic Hong Kong landmark to #luxury #hotel – from the Foster + Partners architecture, views across Hong Kong Park, Zoological and Botanical Gardens, five restaurants plus function facilities and position on #CottonTreeDrive in the heart of the city.

We are so pleased to have LEVIN Wines served at #TheMurrayHK via our local importer Ruud Karsdorp (for HK enquires, contact: Mob. (852) 9091 6576 or ruud@delinet.hk). Our wines were wonderfully-matched to the impressively-prepared menu:
