What makes some prices so high, others low?

The price of a wine depends on the land price where the grapes are grown. winemaking methods, vintage, brand appeal and supply & demand, amongst other factors. Higher land cost locations, such as Napa or France, will lead to higher wine prices. Handmade wines, using traditional techniques tend to be more expensive than large bulk operations. Newer wines are less expensive than older, though wine futures can lead to great values, or loss if the vintage doesn't age well. Some brands are simply more popular and command higher prices, that sometimes are worth it and sometimes not. And finally, when there is an increasing supply of production, prices tend to drop worldwide.

+

What days do you deliver?

We deliver Monday - Saturday, between 10.30am and 7pm. We do not deliver on Sundays or public holidays.

+

When should you decant wine?

Generally reds taste better after being left open to the air for an hour or more. When decanted to a wine decanter with good airation (oxygenation), the effect is best.

+

How should we store wine?

The basic requirements for storing wine are darkness and steady temperature. Avoid sunlight. Rising and falling temperatures causes the cork to "breathe", and will spoil the wine (turn it to vinegar) over time. Best temperatures are l3-18 dec C or 55 to 65 deg F. But most of us in HK drink wine rather quickly, in which case you can be confident that wine is a rather robust product.
