Worldwide VIP and Charity Events starring Aaldering Wines
We have trotted the world again with the Aaldering Wines team. One of many highlights was the VIP Lenco event, that took place at the Residence of the Dutch Consul General in Hong Kong. This was in celebration of the successful cooperation between the synergetic businesses in Hong Kong and the Netherlands.
Taste buds were spoiled with delights such as the new seasons’ Dutch asparagus, with gastronomy by three renowned Dutch Michelin starred chefs. The top notch menu called for boutique wines and a flight of vife selected Aaldering wines was served and personally presented by Fons Aaldering at the festive dinner. Lenco also hosted a charity auction for the World Cancer Research Fund and impromptu, a lot for staying at the Aaldering Luxury Lodges generously raised a bid of HK$ 40,000.
Also in mainland China our Sales Manager Johnna Zeng had lots of events on the calendar. Both in Guangzhou and Shanghai national wine tastings took place and a larger footprint for top quality wines from South Africa is being created.
As for the goings-on in the Netherlands we were fortunate to participate and donated sponsorship and a stay at the Aaldering Luxury Lodges for the Cure for Cancer gala dinner that was organized and sponsored at Huis ter Duin. A stunning EUR 802.000 was raised for the special cause with the special lot.
Both in Hamburg for the WTCE show and in Chicago during the NRA show, our global marketing and sales manager Janine Smink teamed up with the amazing chefs of Gate Gourmet and Cuisine Solutions. World-top chefs prepared revolutionary dishes that were accompanied by our Estate wines. Lots of new foodie friends were made over a glass of Aaldering wine and we are looking forward to go back to the amazing events and cities for that matter!
