Our financial year-end is March 31 so we just finished our second year in operation. With what Hong Kong has to endure in the past 9 to 10 months, the general sentiments of consumers as a result, and therefore the challenges to business in general, we just feel blessed that we have managed to grow year-over-year. Your support is truly appreciated and we hope we are delivering some value too.
The great satisfaction has always been getting messages from some of you every now and then to say how much you enjoyed our wine recommendation. We also greatly enjoyed the occasions when some of you used our office for wine/dinner gatherings during which time we could meet new friends and learned from one another.
As we look to continue improving our service and offerings, your comments and suggestions are most welcome. There may be new ideas we want to try out and you will be advised of such in due course.
The one thing we want to mention here is our Wine Programs which has attracted reasonable interests. For those who don’t know, the idea is that by pre-paying HK$4,000 (for the Silver Program) or HK$6,000 (for the Gold Program), you will receive our curation of 3 bottles of wines every 2 months i.e. total 9 bottles over 6 months. The wines are typically rated 95 points or above by the likes of the Wine Advocate, the Wine Spectator, James Suckling or Vinous and selected based on certain preference criteria pre-specified by you. In the Gold Program, the wines will come from more established producers/wine regions when compared with those offered by the Silver Program. In addition to our insight in selecting these wines, it will actually work out to be more economical than if you were to buy these wines individually from our website. Around Oct/Nov, we will invite all Silver and Gold Program members to our office for a tasting event during which one can meet like-minded folks to share experience and ideas while enjoying wines and snacks.
Any of you wanting to renew your Wine Program or joining for the first time, please e-mail us in the next 2 weeks providing:
1. Your name / E-mail / Telephone number / Address
2. Whether you opt for the Silver or Gold Program
3. Your wine preference such as
