The week in pictures: Hong Kong

Kenichi Ohashi MW and Jeannie Cho Lee MW hosted the Château Mercian masterclass for a selected group of trade and media professionals at Dynasty Club, showcasing a total of 10 wines from Mercian produced from vineyards in Yamanashi and Nagano prefectures. In anticipation of an increase in wine export, Mercian is also opening a third winery in Nagano next year to sate demand. The push to grow an export market that was previously almost non-existent for Japanese wineries comes at a time when the country’s domestic wine production is evolving quickly. In October this year, Japan tightened its regulations on domestic wine production, allowing only wines made from grapes from Japan to be labelled as Japanese wine.
