As part of our 'Women of Wine' Wine Club, we will be welcoming Rachel Atkins to Hong Kong on the 30th of May.
In the words of Rachel:
"It was a no brainer, women, wine and stories about what we now call our work - life balance. But it took me 45 years to get there.
I love the wine industry. I love Fox Gordon. I even love my husband and kids.
Owning Fox Gordon gives me autonomy, empowerment, creative freedom and challenge after challenge after challenge.
My story started with triggers like;
saying yes to absolutely everything, (I once wrote down how many things I agreed to which was one full A4 page long, including dying my hair a bad shade of blonde;
a fear of judgement (don’t get me started on my mother);
and that feeling of being the mouse on the treadmill, flat out, all day, all night.
Draining mini bars in hotel rooms in Hong Kong and China had made me anxious.
So I started to make some small changes, aligned to my own values and passions, things I could do in small manageable chunks to prevent me from raiding the cellar at home every night."
Hear more of Rachels stories and join us to talk about balance in all aspects of life.

The Tasting Room by Wine Brothers SHEUNG WAN
Woweee. New Producers. New Wines. New Winemaker.
We are super excited to be hosting Julian Langworthy from Deep Woods Estate here in Hong Kong. An intimate 'Meet The Maker' dinner down in the bunker at Crown Wine Cellars. 4 courses, 5 exceptional wines... It is going to be a great night. One of the best.
Of all the 'Meet The Maker' dinners that we hosted over the past two years, this is our first Western Australia producer we have had grace us with their presence (and we started from the top in terms of quality!).
Deep Woods Estate
With its state-of-the-art winery and a vast selection of vineyards, Deep Woods Estate is at the frontline of producers leading a new wave in Margaret River. With a talented team that combines traditional and modern winemaking techniques, Deep Woods Estate has arguably become Australia’s best and most consistent producer of Cabernet Sauvignon.

James Halliday's Winemaker of the Year 2019, a Jimmy Watson Award winner, Ray Jordan's 2017 Winemaker of the Year and a Wine Society Young Winemaker of the Year nominee, Julian is now regarded as one of the most talented winemakers in Australia. His impressive career has included vintages in France and Canada, as well as senior winemaking roles in the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, and Coonawarra. Passionate about producing regionally distinctive wines, Julian joined the Deep Woods team in 2011.
