Impressions of Hong-Kong, by Jean-Roger

For the second time, we participated to Vinexpo Hong Kong. The dynamism and energy we felt from Hong Kong, the attendance at the show, the great progression in interest and education generated by wine, have given us great enthusiasm as opposed to France’s gloomy atmosphere.
Hong-Kong is becoming the unavoidable ecomomic platform in Asia for, as a government official explained, this city is located only 5 hours flight from more than 3 billion people. It is therefore crucial to be present, for the day Asia will wake-up et drink wine…

In the meantime, work on the cellar in Maury is progressing. The roof with its photovoltaic cells is installed, the concrete slab poured, the Canadian well dug and we are now choosing the furniture for the sales counter and office.
The vines are beautiful. We are busy with work in the vineyards and flowering, a sensitive period in our area for Grenache, is going well.

Best wishes
Jean-Roger Calvet.
