ABS Asia Ltd. is a Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) approved programme provider. Being in the market for over 18 years (previously known as Vins de France), ABS has great experience in providing excellent wines selections, services, events, and education to wine enthusiasts in Hong Kong. No matter if you are a wine amateur looking to enrich your wine knowledge and tasting techniques; or a wine connoisseur further developing your taste buds and wine knowledge, ABS can provide a wine platform that fits your needs.

We focus on small class sizes of 6-8 to encourage interaction and discussion as we believe wine tasting should be learnt from each other and not solely on books. Our certified and professional tutors will guide you through every step and every mouthful of wine.
