Macau’s first wine and dine festival, held May 23-26 at the Venetian resort, has been acclaimed a major success, with plans to expand to other regions in future years.
Organised by The Wine Society of Macau, it was held in conjunction with the Venetian Carnevale, a celebration of Italian lifestyle.
The festival included a wine school, cooking demonstrations, and booths where the large crowds sampled wine and food from around the world.
A highlight of the wine school was a presentation by Joao Paulo Martins, editor of Portugal’s most important wine magazine, Revista de Vinhos. Martins, often referenced as Portugal’s answer to Robert Parker Jr, was sponsored by Wines of Portugal.
Filipe Santos, the Macau wine society’s president, spoke with DecanterChina’s video reporter Stephen Quinn.
