Burghound Symposium

We are thrilled to be able to now launch our Burghound Symposium 2019 programme. This intense, but varied collection of masterclasses and dinner events, combines fun with the chance to gain or to deepen your understanding of Burgundy. We are flying leading Burgundy critic and writer Allen Meadows (and “Mrs. Burghound" too!) to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong to lead events in this programme.

Allen Meadow’s 2019 China programme is exclusive to The Fine Wine Experience.

There is much to learn about this complex yet rewarding fine wine region of Burgundy. Allen’s expertise, his complete fluency in the subject, and his ability to teach, to lead, and to moderate discussion offer much to both the novice and the experienced aficionado.

We have also spent many months meticulously sourcing just the right bottles – the right vineyards, vintages, and domaines with the right provenance – to show top level Burgundy in its diversity and depth.

Hedonism and learning combined! 

The programme takes in a range of subjects with a nicely varied selection of cuisines at leading dining venues in three cities. Yet all this is scheduled within a short enough space of time, that both locals and international guests alike can schedule any selection of events, or indeed the entire programme into their diaries.
This year Edouard Parinet of Château du Moulin-à-Vent and Jean-Luc Pépin of Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé who will join us to host their domaine-specific events.

Many of these events are very small in scale, so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Act now and contact us via events@finewineexperience.com or +852 2803 0753 for booking.

2019 THE FINE WINE EXPERIENCE BURGHOUND SYMPOSIUM Hong Kong Gala Dinner with special guests: Edouard Parinet, Jean-Luc Pépin, Erica and Allen Meadows

The centrepiece event for The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium is the Gala Dinner. This dinner is where we really let our hair down, celebrating in the traditional Burgundy “paulée” style, all of us attending sharing bottles, magnums, jeroboams (!), from our cellars for old friends at our table, and new friends around the room. The core of Hong Kong’s Burgundy-loving community attend, along with visitors from the mainland, Europe, USA, and across Asia. 

The dinner exemplifies the generosity, friendship, and natural sense to share the passion for these wines with others, so join The Fine Wine Experience team, Erica & Allen Meadows, Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüe’s Jean-Luc Pépin and Château du Moulin-à-Vent’s Edouard Parinet for this very special night.

This dinner is a BYO Burgundy event - the chance to pull from the cellar your special bottles, mature rarities, and - especially - those large format bottles that were just made for nights like this. (Of course, if you need help, we have plenty of Burgundy available for you to purchase – just let us know and we’ll be sure to have you well equipped for the night).
