HK in pictures

db‘s publisher, Ivy Ng, was at the Guy de Chassey Champagne dinner organised by the HK Chapitre of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne at China Tang at The Landmark last week.

(l-r) Ingrid (née de Chassey), seventh generation of the family to be winemaker at the estate, Claudio de Villemor Salgado, ambassador of the Hong Kong chapter of the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, and Marie-Odile de Chassey.

db met Corney & Barrow’s new general manager for Hong Kong, Thibaut Mathieu. Although Rupert Millar looks like he may have fallen asleep in the background he is in fact taking notes while talking to the company’s sales director, Oliver Hartley (out of shot).

The von Liechtenstein family is promoting its Austrian wines in the region although, for the moment, the wines from its actual Liechtenstein property are staying in Europe.

Kerry Wines held its portfolio tasting at the LHT Tower last week.

db grabbed the chance to taste through the new Jacquesson wines.

Meanwhile, young Alsatian winemaker Charles Sparr was in town for Armit’s portfolio tasting at Club Lusitano.

Rupert and Ivy also took some time out to go and visit Magnum, to see the machines that print your copies of db Hong Kong.

A tub of ink of the sort used in printing the magazine. Who knows, you may be holding it in your hands one day or another – albeit in magazine form.

What a magazine looks like when it’s being put together.

And what happens to the stray bits and pieces, the printing room is full of spare scraps of paper. Here a bit of a previous copy of db being used for…something.

As the printers is down in Aberdeen, lunch on the floating restaurant was sure to follow. Here, the view of the jetty where you catch your boat for a short trip across to the giant structure.

A wing of the restaurant in view on the left along with an example of the water taxis that ply to and fro between jetty and restaurant.
