Fine Wine Club Membership 2014







HKUAA Fine Wine Club 

Message from the Chairman

 

Dear Wine Club Members and Alumni Members,

This year we hosted two full house Wine Tastings and one likewise Wine Dinner, thanks to the support of our members and friends.  We also launched two wine subscriptions; both of them were sold out.  And the AA Bar continued to supply good value wines, most with scores of RP90 and more.  Now, let’s look at our plan for the coming year 2014.

Firstly, we find it necessary to adjust our annual membership fee to $160 due to increase of wine prices and other costs.  In the past year we tried very hard to break even because the Committee is adamant that only good wines with high scores were to be served in tastings and wine dinners.  So I hope you would all understand our rational.  And for being a club member you shall receive the following benefits:

1.      Free admission to Wine Tastings, at least twice a year

2.      Privilege of wine subscriptions, at least three kinds of wine a year

3.      5% discount for members attending Wine Dinners

4.      Receive circulation of wine information

 

Wine Subscription

For our first wine subscription in January, you are invited to sign up now.  We have secured three cases of a very good value Bordeaux, the 2009 Senejac (RP 93).  The Subscription price is only $230 ! which is even less than what you paid for them previously.  Each subscriber is limited to two bottles, on first come first served basis.

Robert Parker says "this wine is delicious and full-bodied, with sweet tannins, low acidity, copious fruit and exceptional concentration", while Jancis Robinson says "it is savoury and succulent" and calls it "a serious wine", and gives it 16+ points.  I myself like it very much and already finished a whole case!


We plan to have two wine dinners next year with good score French wines in the first quarter and fourth quarter.  The first one is likely to be a collection of RP95+ Southern Rhone wines.  Watch out for the notice.

Some new wines have been purchased for the bar and we will inform the details very soon.  There will be an addition of a good French house wine (less than $200!) to the wine list. Remember to try it next time you come.

We are counting on your continued support in renewing your membership and attending our events.  Many thanks.

May I wish you all a happy holiday season!

Tommy Ling
