Epicureans may want to mark their calendar for the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, which will take place in Hong Kong for the seventh consecutive year October 22 - 25. 

The four-day event showcasing the city's culinary and wine scene kicks off the November Hong Kong Wine & Dine Month. New to the festival, a craft beer zone and whiskey zone has been added to the lineup, along with the more than 340 wine and food exhibitors (an increase of 30 percent from last year), five thematic wine zones, tasting rooms and live entertainment.

Two new zones, Star Avenue and Gourmet Trails, will present offerings from Michelin-starred and other award-winning restaurants. On Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25, chefs from Michelin restaurants in France and Hong Kong, together with award-winning chefs from Hong Kong's "Best of the Best Culinary Awards", will present meals in the Tasting Room.

This year's event will take place at the Central Harbourfront, offering a dramatic backdrop of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline.
