We're always on the hunt for fun things to do in Hong Kong, and we like to make them happen too! Recently, we held a fun wine tasting with Milestone Beverages, here's what happened
While the majority of our time is spent writing cool content for you to pour over during your work day, like these handy travel tips or this list of our fave Hong Kong artists, we also host a range of fun events with a variety of brands who we feel get us. Recently, we joined forces with Milestone Beverages for Wine, Baos, Sangria!, a uniquely casual wine tasting that paired wines from their collection of brands with traditional baos and where guests were also taught how to make sangria.
We had so much fun at Wine, Baos, Sangria! with Milestone Beverages. Thank y'all for coming and Feather & Bone for the delicious food. See what happened that night: https://bit.ly/2sWmMOG

Wine, Baos, Sangria: Here’s what you missed
Tired of regimented wine dinners, we decided to throw caution to the wind and do something a little different. After chats with our fellow Garage Collective friends Milestone Beverages, we decided to host Wine, Baos, Sangria!, a low-key wine tasting, where guests could feel free to ask questions in a casual setting. To up the fun, we brought in trays of delicious baos from Anytime Dim Sum – a small street food vendor in our neighbourhood – and paired them with some wines from the Milestone Beverages stable, including Blowfish, Atilius and Le Boudoir. And they were so good! Our neighbours at Feather & Bone even sent around some decadent platters full of all their deli goodness, so everyone was full.
We also wanted to make sure that people were learning how to use wine in different ways, so Joe Milner from Milestone Beverages made some amazing Sangria, in both red and white varieties for guests to try, before two teams fought it out to create the best version themselves (everyone was a winner!)
Of course Milestone Beverages gave a way load of loot during the event and even sent everyone on their way with a goodie bag filled with wine and other bits.
