VINEXPO HONG KONG
Pont des Arts, the unique company that unites Art and Wine, is delighted to announce that it will participate for the first time in Vinexpo Hong Kong 2018.
Pont des Arts is the first international high-end brand of French wines to build a bridge between Art and Wine, Bordeaux and Burgundy, East and West, collectors and newcomers. Pont des Arts marries the best from the art world, with artists such as Zao Wou-Ki, Yue Minjun, Miquel Barceló and Yan Pei-Ming, and the wine world, with French wine experts such as Paul Pontallier and Étienne de Montille.
Echoing the famous quote from Aristotle, “Art and wine are the ultimate pleasures of free men”, Pont des Arts aspires to merge the worlds of art and wine into a unique concept, bringing to life a limited-edition wine and spirit collection created in collaboration with world-renowned winemakers and artists.
Every Pont des Arts bottle is adorned with a carefully selected work of art, chosen together with the artist, to match the flavour profile of each wine.
At Vinexpo Hong Kong 2018 (Level 3 – Booth RS47), Pont des Arts will present an exclusive experiential booth to professionals and wine lovers. Exploring every aspect of Pont des Arts’ unique concept, the booth will immerse visitors in the connected realms of art and wine through a guided presentation of Pont des Arts’ limited-edition collections and latest releases.
For this special occasion, Pont des Arts ambassadors from Hong Kong, Beijing and London will team up to introduce our full portfolio and offer a tasting of some of our limited-edition top-selling items:
