With locations in Sai Ying Pun and most recently, luxury retail complex K11 MUSEA, multi award-winning The Fine Wine Experience is the city’s leading wine retailer and events space.

On 8th May and 29th May, The Fine Wine Experience will host special Saturday sessions from 2pm-3:30pm, with topics spanning the most renowned regions and producers of Pinot Noir in the US, to understanding the highest and most reputed classification of a vineyard – the Grand Cru.

The Fine Wine Experience K11 MUSEA
The city’s leading fine wine retailer, The Fine Wine Experience has been awarded the prestigious 2020 Fine Wine Retailer of the Year Asia Award by The Drinks Business Magazine (in addition to 2020 Best Drinks Event Asia following a 19th Century Themed Wine Dinner).
The Fine Wine Experience’s Kowloon outlet is a beautiful contemporary designed lounge and shop, in keeping with K11 MUSEA’s ‘modern elevated lifestyle’ approach. Up on the 6/F, at shop 606, and set amongst restaurants and art galleries, it features seating for 22 guests, including an 8-seater private room and an alfresco terrace. It is the perfect place to wind down with friends over a glass of wine and a platter of snacks after work, before and after dinner, or even a break after shopping, all whilst enjoying the inimitable view of the Hong Kong Island skyline from the harbour’s edge.
As Hong Kong’s best wine retailer, The Fine Wine Experience boasts an impressive line-up of coveted bottles that cover famous wine regions and terroirs worldwide. Guests visiting the K11 MUSEA lounge can enjoy fine wines by the glass or bottle, at retail prices, saving up to 75% compared to similar lounges. Moreover, the list is broad in range, and deep in vintages, with an especially strong focus on domaine-produced Burgundy wines, fine Bordeaux châteaux, and leading estates from around the world – Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Château Pétrus, Screaming Eagle, Biondi-Santi, and more.

The Fine Wine Experience is a leading Hong Kong fine wine merchant. We represent over fifty family wine estates, including a number of the world’s finest, which we import directly to Hong Kong. We specialise in particular in Burgundy domaines. We also recognise the need in Hong Kong for access to well-stored mature vintages of fine wine, and we offer the city’s largest selection.
