An intricate Chinese paper cutting to mark the Year of the Pig 2019.

From the piping hot dumplings commonly served at lunar New Year’s eve in northern China and steamed fish (鱼) to Chinese cured smoked sausage (香肠) and Hong Kong’s festive Poon Choi (盆菜) – a big bowl of various cooked ingredients – top wine importers in Hong Kong and mainland China including Watson’s Wine, Royal Orchid, COFCO Wine & Wine and ASC Fine Wines have cherry-picked the best wines to match the flavours of each dish.
