Myanmar a land of pure Gold


ပြည်ထောင်စု သမ္မတ မြန်မာနိုင်ငံတော် Myanmar remains an absolute mystery, even to the well travelled and continues to fascinate. How rightly so. 
In just a month this amazing Asian country seems at last to capture the attention of the World community. Time to go !
A recent first visit to Yangon, Mandalay, to the Inle lake and to amazing Bagan has been an eye opener. A country of culture and people with rich intricate layers like gold leaves offered to thousands of Buddhas over centuries.
... and Hugel wines, certainly not a top priority to the vast majority of its inhabitants are now also available in Myanmar via its virtual sole importer: Quarto Products. Managing partner Renato Buhlmann and his team went out of their way for this launch visit. There is even now a Hugel brochure in Myanmar language

In Singapore from February 1-6


Back after less than a month... must be something special about this city/state !

Main reason is our new distribution arrangements with Monopole, Michael Chong and his team and a series of events, Hugel wine dinner at Mandarin Oriental's Dolce Vita on February 2. Details with menu and bookings here

Then moving to the ship that has changed the Singapore skyline, and seeing many top sommeliers at some of their signature restaurants, many of them seen at Dr NK Yong's Celebration 85 just the previous month...

Time also to catch up with journalist friends and thank Julian Teoh for the January issue of Flavours magazine which just featured an excellent story on Hugel written by Singaporean upcoming wine writer. Julian just visited us right into our latest vintage and shared with his readers an nice insight of a visit to a vintner right into action.

Back to Malaysia


Almost 5 years since last visiting Kuala Lumpur and what a change here too !
Mr Gwee and his team of Muihua had taken the trouble to visit our Vinexpo Bordeaux stand last June so had promised to visit again when next in the region.
