With fine wines becoming more and more popular in Hangzhou, many of the best wines have become available for tasting and purchase across the city. Cesare Benvenuto of Pio Cesare wines recently stopped by briefly in Hangzhou, and MORE was lucky enough to get the opportunity to meet up with him to learn a bit more about his wines and their brand.
Summergate Fine Wines & Spirits recently held a Riesling tasting event at the Four Seasons hotel in Hangzhou to introduce two Rieslings – one from German vineyard Dr. Loosen and the other one from Chinese vineyard Kanaan Winery based in Ningxia.
In the midst of a Hangzhou winter season, when the wind is blowing and nothing you do keeps you warm, try something new like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the Monster Fight Club just a short walk from Da Tie Guan subway station.
I bought a three month gym membership recently in a last ditch attempt to get fit for the Christmas season but quickly found myself lacking in motivation. In the evenings after work, the treadmills were all occupied, and finding mat space in the yoga class was like parking your ebike outside of Wu Mart! Impossible!
Tokyo, with over 80,000 restaurants, is a fantastic city for food lovers to visit and much cheaper than you think. For every category of Japanese food, from sushi to tempura to tonkatsu, there’s a range in price from budget eateries to Michelin starred establishments. Tokyo diners have a high level of reverence for food and they will go to great lengths to secure the ideal meal. It’s not uncommon for diners to book half a year in advance to get a reservation at a top sushi-ya or to line up for hours for a perfect bowl of ramen noodles.
