The 2018 Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival was successfully held at the Central Harbourfront. Have you guys enjoy the remarkable wine night with friends? To celebrate the festival’s 10th edition, there are about 450 booths serving up a range of international wines and gourmet which is over 10% more than the past. “Rosé Revolution Garden Pavilion”, “Coffee Fiesta”, “International Street Eats” were making their debut for the first time.
