PIIN Wine Restaurant is Now Open

April 17, 2019 Dining No Comments Email Email

PIIN Wine Restaurant has officially opened its doors in Hong Kong’s hottest new development – H Code on historic Pottinger Street. The owners of two of Burgundy’s most impressive domaines, Château de Meursault and Château de Marsannay, are behind the independent wine restaurant – a first of its kind.

Set to become one of the city’s most impressive dining destinations, PIIN Wine Restaurant is now serving an inspiring menu of elevated Cantonese dishes by Fook Lam Moon alumni, Chef Ming, alongside an expertly-curated wine programme which focuses on large format, older vintages and rare wines with a focus on wines from Burgundy. With over 2,000 pours available to accompany a meal at PIIN Wine Restaurant, including up to 100 by-the-glass options, the wine restaurant dispels the myth that Chinese food and European wines make for an inharmonious partnership.

Dishes like Smoky Cold Abalone with Plum Sauce (HK$198) and the textural delight Cigar Duck Roll (HK$168), are wonderful partners for choice wines like the 2001 Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (HK$545 per glass) which boasts notes of tobacco and charcoal to complement the smokiness of each plate.

Classic Cantonese dishes, like Deboned Chicken Wing Filled with Glutinous Rice (HK$128), are raised to a new level through the use of only the finest ingredients. The crisp skin juxtaposes both the tender stuffing and a well-selected Burgundy wine from an appellation such as Volnay or Vosne-Romanée, which is known for its inimitable silkiness.

Japanese Bean Curd Braised with Maitake Mushrooms (HK$108) invites guests to get creative with their choice of wine. Unlike many western dishes, Cantonese dishes like tofu are often suitable tablemates for both white and red wines, and Chef Ming’s flavourful creation is no exception. Wines like  2016 Domaine du Château de Meursault, Clos du Château (at HK$184 per glass, white) and  2016 Domaine du Château de Meursault, Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epenots (at HK$306 per glass, red) can both bring out the delicate textures of the tofu dish.

The creative menu is best enjoyed in the form of a selection of small plates in PIIN Wine Restaurant’s chic yet relaxed main dining area, or its well-appointed private room which seats up to 16 people. For those looking to enjoy a meal for one, a neat selection of small plates makes for a delightful meal at the bar, or can be enjoyed as a light-hearted evening snack over a special glass or two with friends.
