The Birth of ThinkWine
Jean-Benoit and Romain arrived in Hong Kong in October 2016, two days apart from each other. Total strangers at the time, they met each other on the comptoir at a wine bar, drinking by themselves.
They made quick friends once they started to talk and to share their bottles.
They played blind tasting and spoke passionately about their love for wines.
Soon they started their tradition of blind tasting catch-up every week, only to
find that there really isn’t many good wine bars in Hong Kong. They realised
that even though there are plenty of bars, but a well located, wine-focused place offering quality selection, comfortable ambiance while being reasonably priced
is next to non-existent.
In a market booming with ever-growing wine consumption, and being
seasoned sommeliers themselves, why not to start their own wine bar?
And this is how the idea of ThinkWine came to life…
