From June 21st to 24th, Mexico City was the setting for the 11th edition of the Wine & Food Festival, an event that year after year pays tribute to gastronomy with a series of dinners, tastings and experiences that blend avant-garde and high end cuisines of the world. The Wine Bar by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and wines from 10 award-winning wineries at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2022 were part of this unique event.
Hand in hand with its sommeliers, the Wine Bar by Concours Mondial de Bruxelles participated in the Taste of Asia session, offering tastings to visitors along with creations from the best Asian restaurants in Mexico City, such as Galanga, Tandoor Restaurant, Kura, Daurat, Black Knot, Asian Bay, DOI, Koqure and Blossom. The wine chosen to harmonize the Asian culinary experience was Helan Hong Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 from the Lan Yi Winery, in Ningxia, China. Adding to the Asian experience was the iconic Baijiu Nuwa, from the Chinese distillery Beijing Red Star.
