Summoning images of Mediterranean skies, aromas of fresh herbs and olive oil, and above all the flavours of great food and wine, Paper Moon more than met our expectations as a superb venue. Where better to show off a great selection of our wines in the company of our Master of Wine, Michael Palij.
Pio Galligani and his wife, Enrica del Rosso opened the first Paper Moon restaurant in Milan In 1977. The rest is history! Paper Moon restaurants can now be found in Istanbul, Beirut, Doha, Manila and now here in Hong Kong, opening last September in collaboration with the 1957 & Co. restaurant group. Across these diverse locations the restaurants remain true to the original identity and outstanding quality of the Paper Moon concept. The Hong Kong restaurant adds its own unique identity with one of the best views of Hong Kong Island from Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
It is great to not only win awards for our amazing wines, but also to read about it. We hope you enjoy the article with a glass of the winning wine to celebrate with us.
