Marennes Oléron Oysters and Chablis Wine Pairing in Hong Kong (9 Sep) [fr]
In the prestigious Pool House of Grand Hyatt Hong Kong on 9 September 2015, 7 Marennes Oléron oyster farmers showcased their oysters together with exceptional Chablis wines, presented by BIVB (The Bourgogne Wine Board).
Organised by Business France, this B2B event began with a presentation about the history and varieties of the oysters and wines to some twenty journalists invited. The specific, “natural” pairing between Marennes Oléron and Chablis was also introduced. Afterwards, some 100 professionals including importers, distributors and restaurateurs, tasted and enjoyed the perfect pairing between 4 types of oysters and 6 highlighted Chablis wines at the event.
Furthermore, during the networking, all guests gladly welcomed the new Consul General of France, Mr. Eric Berti, who was impressed by the warm reception of the two distinguished French products in Hong Kong and Macau.
France is the largest supplier of oysters to Hong Kong to date.
