Looking Into Variations of Cabernet
To cater for the growing interest in wine and wine-tasting, the Asia Wine Academy (AWA) will return to the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair 2019 for the third year. The Academy is offering two intensive wine-quality courses this year, one taught by Master Sommelier Lu Yang, and one by Jeannie Cho Lee, Master of Wine.

Jeannie Cho Lee
is the first Asian Master of Wine (MW) and an award-winning author, editor, wine critic, judge and educator. Jeannie has been a professor at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) where she helped to launch the Master of Science (MSc) in International Wine Management program since 2012.
Lu Yang is the first, and currently the only, Chinese Master Sommelier in the world, as well as the most influential sommelier in Greater China. He is the Wine Consultant for Shangri-La Hotel Group, and also consults for multiple Black Diamond and Michelin Star restaurants. He is also champions for all major sommelier competitions in China, including the Best Sommelier of Greater China in 2014.
The courses are co-organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. They are based on the SHTM’s MSc in International Wine Management programme. The courses are pitched at wine enthusiasts and traders at intermediate and advanced levels. They provide in-depth knowledge of Cabernet Sauvignon and its cousins from around the world, and offer an opportunity to taste and compare similar wines from different parts of the world.
