The Biggest French Food and Wine Festival in Hong Kong is Back !

Le French GourMay

For the fifth consecutive year, Le French GourMay will offer the people of Hong Kong and Macau one whole month to discover the best of French wines and gastronomy. By providing dedicated menus to match with French wines, wine tastings, promotions and workshops, Hong Kong and Macau restaurants, Michelin-starred chefs, as well as wine importers and distributors will dedicate the entire month of May to celebrate this festival.
Each year, Le French GourMay honors the wine from a different region of France, and in 2013, Bourgogne will be the focus.

The official partner of Le French GourMay in 2013: Bourgogne

Bourgogne has nearly 28,500 hectares of vines in production, 100 classified Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (A.O.C) and a volume of about 200 million bottles marketed. In Bourgogne, terroir is a broad concept which includes both natural and human factors. It was wine growers, sometimes aided by the work of monks, who discovered, identified and then developed the Terroirs. Centuries of hard work were necessary for this concept, whose origin goes back to the early Middle Ages, to be passed down to us and be officially recognized and described in the middle of the last century with the creation of the I.N.A.O. and appellations of origin. Bourgogne wines, whether they are red or white, are distinguishable by the extraordinary delicacy and elegance of their aromas, focusing on the subtlety rather than their powerfulness. The remarkable balance, freshness and excellent body of Bourgogne wines make them pleasant wines that are a joy to share.
