As Christmas nears, everyone is getting ready for the feast of a lifetime. And no Christmas gathering is complete without a bottle of wine or two. Luxury wine supplier Maxwine is opening its doors to the public and, as a Localiiz reader, you can enjoy exclusive festive offers! Read more about how this wine supplier is bringing private wines to your dining table, what wines are on offer, and why Maxwine is our go-to wine supplier for all occasions!
Maxwine became the main supplier of Vigne Olcru in China, Hong Kong, and Macau in 2016. From then on, the company has been sourcing and distributing premium bottles to five-star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants in Hong Kong, including the Ritz-Carlton, the three-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana, the three-Michelin-starred Caprice at the Four Seasons, and the two-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant Octavium. With such an impressive background and clientele, Maxwine only acquires the best of the best bottles from the perfect wine regions for growing and producing premium bottles.
Wine connoisseurs know that the best places on earth to grow and produce wine are regions across the 45th parallel north. Simply put, this is the latitude that is 45 degrees north of the equator, and regions spanning across this includes the south of France and the north of Italy, which is why the best wines on the market are often produced in these places. Of these, Maxwine’s Lombardy wines are among the highest quality selection in the world.
Vineyards in Lombardy are as impressive as Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, with 24,000 hectares of land dedicated to growing wine grapes. From this impressive landmass, a selection of reds and wines are produced. Particularly of note are its pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Muscat grapes. Maxwine is offering two varieties of these top wines to city dwellers this festive season!
This sparkling wine ($380) is an indulgently sweet Muscat variety with hints of all things floral—just think fragrant rose and geranium. Its undertones of citrus and sage remind you of summer parties with a plethora sweet and refreshing fruit tarts, cakes, and biscuits. It’s simply the perfect bottle for those craving for summer to come again.
This Pinot Noir-Chardonnay ($480) is perfect served cold, but not frozen, which means it will remain at perfect tasting temperature just sitting on your dining table this December! Sit back and enjoy pleasant hints of flowers and fruit at your next Christmas gathering.
