Coming to Time Out’s eighth annual Winewalk this month? Snap up your tickets now before you sample the most exquisite wines and become the first few in Hong Kong to taste Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial champagne at Fashion Walk. We take a look at the delicious vintages and canapés in store for you…

Our annual Time Out Winewalk is all about tasting great wine, right? Wrong. Sure, it’s about sampling some of the best bouquets and champagnes from around the globe – but it’s also about enjoying some of the best canapés in town, too. And, at this year’s walk, on Saturday May 14, from 3pm to 6pm, this gastronomic extravaganza comes courtesy of 17 amazing restaurants, shops and brands at Causeway Bay’s Fashion Walk. Prepare for a veritable feast as you sip on some exquisite tipples and snack on some sensational bites with our Time Out Hong Kong readers and team.

The best wines and canapés are the ones enjoyed with friends. So, bring your nearest and dearest along to taste delights like twister fries, mini shrimp cocktails and meatballs alongside a raft of quality Australian, European and North and South American wines. How do you get in on the action? Just buy your ticket from ticketflap.com for only $168 and receive a special ‘walk passport’ and glass from the registration counter in Fashion Walk on the day. Proceeds from the event go to The Woman’s Foundation, so you can contribute to a worthy cause while enjoying a fantastic afternoon of food and drink. 

This year, there is something special in store for Winewalkers – a chance to try Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial champagne. And there is a free glass for all participants! Head over to the Moët & Chandon truck parked on Paterson Street and be the first few in Hong Kong to taste this exclusive bubbly blend. Made to be enjoyed on ice, this fruity champagne can quench your summer thirst.

Prizes include tickets to see performance art giants the Blue Man Group, who hit the stage in Hong Kong later in the summer, as well as Max Mara cash coupons. Plus, the best photo taken on the day and shared on Instagram with #hkfashionwalk, #TOWW and #moetmoment tags wins a 1.5-litre bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial Magnum.
