Grapes and Grains News!

Thank you for visiting our website. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce il Botolo winery as the first winery we are working with.

il Botolo winery is a beautiful boutique winery situated in the Monferrato, in the heart of Piedmont in Northern Italy. It is home to the very famous Barolo and Barbaresco made by Nebbiolo grapes. However, Barbera is another grape variety in the region that is often overlooked but many Barbera wines deserve the spotlight.

il Botolo winery has many award-winning wines. Their quality Barberas have won awards such as The Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge. We are happy to bring their wines into Hong Kong. With high demand, some varieties sold out soon after we received them in Hong Kong.

We still have the following wines available in Hong Kong:


Chardonnay DOC 2018 is perfect for many occasions especially in the summer. This beauty showcases awesome Chardonnay’s varietal characters. It is a great expression of a Chardonnay from a cooler region and shows more elegance when compared to some Chardonnays produced in warmer wine regions.

Barbera d’Asti DOCG is a wine that is great value for money. It really demonstrates what a nice Barbera has to offer. Beautiful red fruit characters. Straightforward without being simple!
