China officially Discover Verdicchio and other White Wines! 

It’s been now years since Stesoph brought to China the most wanted  Italian White wine – Verdicchio.
 
Few years later, also thanks to our instinct and competence of China market last week a Chinese delegation has come to the Marche Region in order to start soon a partnership!
Thanks to Stesoph staff deep knowledge of this territory, a Chinese delegation supported by a SOHU TV came to discover physically this side of Italy. They filmed the lands , homeland of this incredible and unique white wine, famous  all over the World, and consequently,  also sadly  the most copied Italian wine by scammers.
Soon a complete reportage on : https://tv.sohu.com
 The hillsides of Marche hold many secrets, among them the complexity and ageability of well-made Verdicchio. That’s why I feel intrigued years ago as I explored the region, says Caroline Sophie Douce, owner of Stesoph.

The Verdicchio grape, grown in the hillsides of north-central and western Marche, is used to produce a variety of wines, from “metodo classic” to “passito” and, in between, some of the longest-lived dry whites found in Italy and not only.

Decanter Italy expert Ian D’Agata, in his book Native Wine Grapes of Italy, asserts that ‘Verdicchio is arguably  Italy’s  greatest  native  white  grape  variety.’  In  its  2015  Italian  wine  guide,  Gambero  Rosso awarded its highest rating of tre bicchieri to 11 examples of Verdicchio – more than any other white in the country. So why is it that you would be hard pressed to find more than one example on wine lists outside of Italy?

Maybe simply because it is difficult to appreciate something that most people in China didn’t know before Stesoph intuition and perseverance through its Italian platform located in Shenzhen. They introduce into China market several top quality original white wine that became in a few years very appreciated and a “must have” mainly by the new generation and high society Chinese women with a sales grow over 10% every year.

This success was possible because of the excellent selections in terms of quality by Stesoph’s partners specialized in production of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi special for a series of factors including soil, climate and elevation. The Castelli di Jesi zone is located in north central Marche closer to the sea side, while Verdicchio  di Matelica is in the western centre of the region, close to the Apennine Mountains where the wineyards grow up to 800m above sea level.

Mission Hills Opens “Chinaflug” Exhibition To Unveil 80-Year-OldHidden Photos

Mission Hills Group has officially opened its “Chinaflug” photography exhibition at the luxury Mission Hills Haikou resort on the tropical Chinese island of Hainan.

The opening ceremony was attended by Dr Andreas Kaufmann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board Leica Camera AG and Owner of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH; Mrs Karin Kaufmann, Art Director of Leica Gallery International and Chairwoman of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH; Mr Tenniel Chu, Mission Hills Group Vice-Chairman; and Cao Yuan Xin, Director of Department of Culture, Radio, Television, Publication and Sports of Hainan Province.

In the mid-1930s, a celebrated German aviator called Wulf-Diether Graf zu Castell-Rüdenhausen flew over China with his Leica camera, recording stunning landscapes, natural features and historical monuments. For more than 80 years his photos have remained undiscovered and unseen – until now.

The Chinaflug (meaning China Flight) exhibition will run for 45 days at Mission Hills Centreville in Haikou. Entry will be free, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Hainan’s status as a province.

On display are several precious and historical photos which have remained unseen to the world for many years. These photographs record incredible images of old China through the power of aerial photography.

Visitors will experience a special exhibition encapsulating the past and blazing a new trail towards a brighter future in photography. They will witness a side to China not seen before as China’s beauty and diversity are displayed for all to see.

Castell has become a legend, not just because of his aerial photography but also because of the precious images he captured. With his Leica camera he was able to capture China through a tumultuous time. He flew over cities, countryside, rolling hills, ports and residential areas including riverbeds and farmlands which were previously undocumented. He was able to encapsulate the spirit of the time with great style and panache and will be remembered as an amazing pioneer both as an aviator and a photographer.

“We are honoured to team up with Mission Hills – like Leica, a family-owned business and a pioneer in its field – to bring these significant photos of China to the Chinese public,” said Chairman of the Supervisory Board Leica Camera AG, Dr Andreas Kaufmann, owner of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.

“Chinaflug is an example of how Leica captured the past one hundred years of human history. It is also a showcase of the long friendship built between Germany and China,” added Karin Kaufmann, Art Director of Leica Gallery International and Chairwoman of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.

Mission Hills Haikou, the most visited tourist attraction in Hainan, is delighted to partner with Leica, with more than 100 years of history, to create yet another first for China and for the world,” added Tenniel Chu, Group Vice Chairman of Mission Hills. “As China’s international tourism island, it is befitting that Hainan should be the location to unveil these remarkable aerial photos of China that have remained a secret for so long. It is our gift to the province and its people to celebrate Hainan’s 30th anniversary!”

Cao Yuan Xin, Director of Department of Culture, Radio, Television, Publication and Sports of Hainan Province commented: “Visitors to Hainan continue to grow year on year and the province received more than 67.45 million tourists in 2017, up 12.2 per cent year-on-year, contributing 81 billion yuan in revenue. Mission Hills has been at the forefront of tourism in Haikou for close to a decade and the Chinaflug exhibition will be another hugely popular attraction for visitors to Hainan.”

Hard Rock Brings The Real Comedy Show to Shenzhen

If we are being honest with ourselves, we don’t get half as much comedy in Shenzhen as we ought to really. God knows we could do with a few laughs here and there.

So when the Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen announced they were bringing over the Punch Line Comedy Club, with a lineup of three Irish comedians for St. Patrick’s Day no less, it was fair say to say it caught the eye. The three comedians each hailed from different parts of the Emerald Isle and each brought their own distinct style.

Fred Cooke, from Meath, mixes comedy and music, and in his own words looks so much like an older, not as attractive Ed Sheeran that he claims to visit the The A-Team singer-songwriter on Christmas Eve pretending to be his ghost to warn him of his future.

Kevin McGahern, a Cavan man, slips effortlessly between surreal stories that would fit comfortably into one of his sketch shows (One gag begins with him being held at knife point by a drug-addled teen and ends up with him in the criminal’s house having tea with his Ma) to the driest of humor that sometimes even goes over the audiences head (“I’ve nothing against the immigrants coming over, but I will say that they brought with them bigotry”).

The third stand up, and tonight’s compère, is the insatiable Karl Spain, who hails from this writer’s hometown of Limerick, and his wit is as sharp as the city’s unwanted reputation. Whether it’s making borderline jokes about the IRA (Comparing the organization to the band U2 because both “did some good early stuff but they should have packed it in a long time ago”) to mercilessly tearing some hecklers to shreds (anybody in the front rows, be warned), Spain is one very, very funny man.

All three comedians do a fine job at finding that balance to their material and recognizing their audience. Most jokes, naturally, are tied in with their Irishness, but they are never too obscure so to feel like it’s an in-joke with the Irish in attendance, and at the same time, the gags aren’t diluted for the audience as to lose their punch.

To be fair, the crowd in Shenzhen aren’t exactly used to coming together like this for a comedy show and so it does take a bit of time for everyone to feel each other out a bit, not just in relation to the comedians. But with the drinks flowing and the laughs coming, it’s not long before McGahern, Cooke and Spain have the crowd in good spirits.

By the time all three comedians take to the stage to end the night by playing a song together – “A traditional Irish song to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day,” as McGahern puts it – the crowd are ready to sing along. Half the audience are expecting The Fields of Athenry, or some Dubliners or Pogues, but the song goes in a most unexpected and hilarious direction, which takes the crowd a few seconds to twig on too. I won’t say what the song was, but once those in the audience had caught up, everyone was chanting along in unison.

With three massively talented Irish comedians coming to visit us here in Shenzhen, it truly was the perfect warm up for St. Patrick’s Day and a rare treat for any comedy lover in general.

The Punch Line Comedy Club is back again at the Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen on Wednesday May 23rd for a Whose Line Is It Anyway? Improv Show. So make sure you don’t wait till next St. Patrick’s Day to check out the next effort at the Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen.

But for now I’ll raise a glass and say Sláinteto Kevin, Fred and Karl for what was a St. Patrick’s Day that no one will forget soon. And sure, why not raise it once more for Hard Rock Hotel and the Punch Line Comedy Club.

Try Something New At Tycoon Tuesdays At Terrace Bar

I think we’ve all had nights where we just don’t feel like having our usual drink of choice. Perhaps you are seated at the bar and you spot a particularly tempting bottle of single malt on the top shelf that you’ve never had before? Or maybe a group at another table are celebrating with a champagne that you’ve always seen but never tried?

As tempted as we are to step outside of our comfort zones, we are often put off when we check the price list. Why spend that much on something I might not like when I can buy a drink that’s tried and tested, even if it is a little overly familiar.

But with Tycoon Tuesdays at Terrace Bar, you now have the chance to try some of those drinks you’ve always wanted to. The concept is simple and clean in its execution. Every Tuesday, Terrace Bar selects one of its top shelf, premium items from its drinks list and takes the price and cuts it by as much as 50%.

Only one item from the menu is selected, but each time it rotates to something new. One week it could be a bottle of Belvedere Pure Vodka, the next week it could be a fine Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay. Well, they do say variety is the spice of life.

If you are looking to impress a new date or want to treat the wife to a break from the kids, be sure to head down to Terrace when the Josmeyer Fleur de Lotus is on special. Take advantage of the Terrace’s other promotions on a Tuesday too and treat yourself and your date to a steak dinner. For RMB148, you can enjoy an imported Australian Rib-eye Steak and a glass of wine.

After a long day of touring factories or sitting in meetings, bring your clients down for a bottle of Macallan 12 Years while it’s available on promotion. Put business to one side for a couple of hours and unwind over a few tumblers of single malt.

Or perhaps it could be something more on the wild side? Make the most of the Hennessy VSOP when it’s on rotation. Bring down a group of friends and party like there’s no tomorrow, or at least like tomorrow isn’t a Wednesday. Who knows? Before you know it, you could be on the dance floor jumping and singing along with the resident Terrace Bar band, T.A.S.

Something to celebrate? Pick up a bottle or two of the Don Perignon when it’s on offer and cheers to that promotion, birthday, or engagement. Pop open that bubbly and celebrate in style.

With the bottle on offer changing every week, there’s only one way to find out what is the special that week. By following Terrace’s official WeChat account you can be amongst the first to find out what bottle is on offer.

Not only that, you can also keep up to date with all of Terrace’s other great specials such as the great value daily Lunch Specials where you can sample Terrace Bar’s Thai food, or Ladies’ Night on a Wednesday where ladies can make the most of some fantastic drinks specials all night long.

So treat yourself to something different on Tuesday and allow yourself to feel like a Tycoon.

Upcoming Tycoon Tuesdays:

April 3rd – Hennessey VSOP 700ml – Originally 1198RMB, on offer at 599RMB

April 10th – Martel Noblige 700ml – Originally 1298RMB, on offer at 649RMB

Hiking weekend getaways in Hong Kong

Group hiking in Hong Kong a way to relax and mingle
Successful hike to the Hong Kong beach people jumping

When you have exhausted your list of things to do in Shenzhen and finally get to take off time from work for a long-overdue weekend getaway, you’ll want to savor every last minute of it by hiking. For nature lovers living in Shenzhen, there is always a choice for a bit of travel — Hong Kong, and you can do it with a group of people who share the same interest. Hiking in Hong Kong is is the best way to get outdoors and socialize with people of all nationalities.

Multinational hiking group

Hong Kong, located right next to Shenzhen, is endowed with bright sunshine, soft beaches, limpid seawater and hot weather all the year round. It enjoys a long and winding coastline, which gives birth to dozens of bays and beaches. Sheltered by mountains with hiking trails, many of them are unruffled and free from strong wind.

Sai Wan Beach view from a hike

Oswaldo Loor from Ecuador got an invitation of hiking in Hong Kong from Ye Wenhao last May, who was organizing hiking trips at that time. Interested in the trip though, Loor at the end still wanted to go to a beach in Hong Kong with his Latin friends.

Women on a Hong Kong hike

Ye told Loor that he could organize a trip to the beach if more than 28 people joined, which was enough for renting a whole bus. That said, Loor started to promote the beach trip and successfully got 56 people to join it.

The beach they went to is Sai Wan Beach, which has been described as one of the best scenic spots in Sai Kung East or even Hong Kong. The beach features white sand and clear blue waters, which is attributable to its relative inaccessibility.

Beach view while hiking in Hong Kong

“The first time we went to Sai Wan Beach was so much fun. We jumped the cliff, bathed in the ocean and all. The people were really happy. We were a mixed crowd of Chinese and expats. They really enjoyed it and thanked us for organizing the trip” said Loor, who was so happy and decided to organize more trips with Ye.

Up to now, they have organized about ten trips, including trips to Sai Wan Beach in Sai Kung Peninsula, MacLehose Trail Section 1 & 2, Suicide Cliff at the south of Kowloon Peak, and Sunset Peak. Loor said they organize at least two trips every month, mostly on the weekend. Every time, around 28 people join the trip.

During the trip, you can not only enjoy the stunning natural scenery and burn some calories sweating out, but also meet new friends from different countries, talking, dancing, swimming, jumping and camping out.

It is also the year of the Youth Olympic Games in Argentina which we will celebrate with an extra team event, giving the players a chance to bid for selection for Buenos Aires 2018.”

With R&A and CGA ranking points on offer, top female golfers aged nine to 17 will compete over three rounds on the highly-acclaimed Annika Course at Mission Hills Dongguan for the title of champion and a place in the prestigious Annika Invitational in the USA. Last year’s champion, Shi Hui-Ying will not defend due to injury.

Annika will spend time with the players both on and off the course, sharing the knowledge and experiences that have made her the most successful female golfer of all time with more than 90 international wins as a professional.
