Press Release: Big name fine wines prove they deserve their status in a Hong Kong blind tasting

Wine Lister, the world’s first data-driven wine rating system, held its inaugural ‘Showdown’ dinner in Hong Kong on 26th May 2016, with some of the most distinguished collectors and members of the trade in attendance to have their say. To help guide its users, Wine Lister has developed four ‘Wine Lister Indicators’, two of which came head to head during this intimate dinner. Buzz Brands, the most talked-about, prestigious wines, were served blind alongside Hidden Gems, fine wines that are under the radar but worth discovering.

The Buzz Brands emerged victorious, scoring on average 18% higher than the Hidden Gems, proving that they have achieved global brand recognition for a reason – thanks to their exceptional quality.
