If supermarket wines or conventional brands bore you, you can elevate your wine experience with Cocobop. Cocobop offers high-quality organic, niche, and other hip wine bottles that you’ll have a hard time finding anywhere in Hong Kong.

We love the sustainably grown and limited production champagne that adds sparkle to any dinner. And the organic riesling will definitely spice up your fiery curry night.

Their website is user-friendly and arguably one of the best online wine stores in Hong Kong. If you want to get a good sense of any bottle of wine they are selling, just look at the helpful matrix. At a glance, you’ll find out if a bottle is bold or light, sweet or dry, and acidic or soft.

You can easily search for under $150 bottles.

Also, every bottle of wine they sell comes with suggested food pairings.  For example, some bottles should be eaten with pasta or pork, whereas other bottles are recommended to be paired together with steak.

If you’re hosting a dinner party and want to impress your guests with your hostessing skills, don’t look past Cocobop Lifestyle.

You can try the limited-produced Reserve Champagne NV (HK$395, only 3,000 bottles produced annually) from Bruno et Christiane Olivier. Or the funky-labeled Le Nain Violet Grenache 2016 (HK$275, only 5,000 bottles produced annually).

FAQs

How do I close a wine bottle without a cork?

Thrown the cork away by accident? Got too ambitious and thought you’d sup the whole bottle before bed? There are solutions to preserving wine once the bottle is open and prevents that vinegary flavor from developing.

Check out this wine preserver from Coravin, which lets you cap wine and stop it oxidizing. It’s on Selfridges, which means you can get it delivered to Hong Kong for free when you sign up to Selfridges Plus – we explained the details in another post that you can find here.

 

How do I open wine without a corkscrew?

The simple answer here is to refer you back to the previous question! The Coravin system opens and seals your wine bottles for you; no corkscrew required ever again. The alternative ways are rather violent, such as smashing the bottle, so if you know you’ve not got a corkscrew at home, better to buy a screw-top wine for now. Check out this well-designed corkscrew from Georg Jensen if you need to find a good one.

 

Where can I buy Boones Farm Wine in Hong Kong?

Many Americans will know about Boones Farm Wine, for better or worse. It’s not the type of wine we go for here at Savvy, but we did some looking into it since it does come up. It turns out it’s not available here in Hong Kong. Your liver will probably be thankful! Invest in some good wine and get boozy with a decent taste instead!

 

What’s the most popular wine by the glass in Hong Kong?  

It’s hard to give a definitive answer on this, but according to Mathieu Marchal, Head Sommelier, Gourmet Dining Group Limited, people in Hong Kong prefer Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay for white wine. For red wine, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon are popular.  Apparently, this doesn’t differ much from many other countries in the world. 

 

Where to buy Shaoxing wine in Hong Kong?

Shaoxing wine, or Chinese rice wine, is available to buy in Hong Kong. We’re massively into HKTV Mall, and that the place to go to get this product in the city, delivered to your door, too.

 

What is the best place in Hong Kong to buy delicious, inexpensive cheese?

We have dedicated an entire article to this question. The answer is simple; The Cheese Club. Head on over to our article to learn more.
