Friday fun: Taste over 100 Chinese wines

bettane and dessauve

Friday is your lucky day if you’ve been wondering, “Where can I start my weekend with more than one hundred Chinese wines? French critics Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve are in town for a few days of events that will include a tasting at the Himalaya Club in the 798 Art District.

The organizers say there will be two hours of sniffing and sipping, starting at 5 PM, followed by a break to announce the winners of an expert tasting held earlier in the day, followed by sniffing and snipping and perhaps even guzzling. Entry is rmb180, and space is quite limited, so RSVP ASAP via commissionrouge (at)
