“As one of a smattering of Masters of Wine in Asia, it has been my great pleasure to work with the dedicated and passionate team at Pudao Wines, be it in Shanghai, Beijing or any number of China's peripheral cities. The ebbs, flows and overall peripatetic nature of wine retail, means that the expertise and up-to-the minute knowledge that Marcus Ford and his perspicacious team at Pudao bring to the Hong Kong wine scene is as reassuring from an international perspective, as it is a gift to the city."

"Pudao Wines are among the very good retail operations I’ve seen in China. Their stylish outlets in Beijing and Shanghai offer a fantastic selection of fine wines from around the world, knowledgeable staff and a wonderfully convivial atmosphere. The tastings and wine events provided by Pudao Wines are as fun as they are informative. I was therefore extremely excited to learn about their new operation in Hong Kong and wish them every success towards furthering the enjoyment of wine in Asia!"
