The Overview

Wine lovers flock to this subterranean bar tucked in an alleyway removed from the frenzy of Central's main streets. Swathed in blue light, Tastings Wine Bar features a gleaming wall of ultra high-tech Enomatic wine dispensers, which pour individual portions of wine—in full-glass, half-glass and "tasting" (25-milliliter) measures—while preventing oxidization. The wine list stretches to 160 vintages from across the globe, ranging from the moderately priced to the breathtakingly expensive. With 40 on tap at any one time, rare high-end bottles are within reach of those without expense accounts: a taste of the sumptuous 2003 Opus One costs a mere HK$144—hardly cheap, but a relative steal given the HK$3,168 price tag on a bottle. Pair the vintages with the delicious nibbles offered here, including duck-mousse pâté and decadent cheese and prosciutto platters.
