Asparagus Seeks Wine…

It’s June and it’s Riesling Weeks!

This year Wines of Germany is bringing another German delicacy, white asparagus to town. Winners of last year’s Riesling Weeks Best Run Campaign Award will be presenting creative German asparagus x wine menus, ranging from Chinese and Thai to French and Spanish cuisines. 

Duddell’s 3.8 Hokkaido milk poach asparagus with Chinese ham (北海道3.8牛乳煮白露筍), Ming Court’s Prawn, White Asparagus, Homemade Chilli Sauce, Wok-Fried (醬皇白露筍炒玉簪蝦球) and Brasserie on the Eighth’s Yellow Miso glazed fillet of Cod Fish with white asparagus-Champagne risotto will work wonder with Weissburgunder, while Sautéed white asparagus and assorted fungus with avocado (牛油果雙耳炒白蘆筍) from Dynasty will be ideal with Silvaner. If you prefer a fruity Spätburgunder, Namo Avant Thai will be preparing Seared Salmon & White asparagus on red curry lemongrass foam (白蘆筍烤三文魚配香茅紅咖喱泡沫) to go with it, and Riesling fans will be delighted to sample their favourite wine with various tapas at Sueno and all participating outlets. Cross the sea and you can still enjoy asparagus and wine pairing at MGM Macau and MGM Cotai

Riesling Weeks Hong Kong has been running for seven years and we are pleased to welcome more participants on board every year. This year F&B outlets at eight leading hotels in Hong Kong and Macau will be running German wine promotion, confirming the effectiveness of the campaign and the popularity of German Riesling in the market. We are also seeing more offers of other German grape varieties, notably Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). Bachmair Wines recently organised a successful premium Spätburgunder masterclass conducted by Joel Payne to a full house of sommeliers, beverage mangers and media. Still, not many people realise that Germany is actually a Pinot country. It has the world’s third largest planting of Point Noir after France and the USA, number two in Pinot Gris planting after Italy, and ranked world’s number one in Pinot Blanc planting. We hope importers will bring in more German Pinots of all colours to wine lovers.

Please join the 70th German Wine Queen, Carolin Klöckner from Württemberg at this year Riesling Weeks Kick-Off celebration and her other events, and treat your senses with the fragrances of freshly picked asparagus and aromas of fine German wine in June.
