Hong Kong star Carina Lau launches online wine, champagne brand | Quirky wine & spirit articles from VINGLISH | Scoop.it
Hong Kong movie star Carina Lau yesterday launched her own online wine and champagne brand at the world's biggest wine and spirits fair Vinexpo in southern France. Going on sale in China on the Alibaba website under the name of the Chinese-born actress are six top-end Bordeaux and four other wines from the region as well as two Moutard champagnes and a sparkling wine. "It's an important day for me and my company Carina international e-commerce limited," said the actress who married movie star Tony Leung in 2008. "My first products are red wine and champagne but it will be introducing many more other products under my brand." A total 280,000 bottles of the top-end Bordeaux wines will be offered in a pre-sale launch with the four vintages from the Haut-Medoc, Margaux and Saint Emilion available later following the official launch of sales in Shanghai. Carina Lau, 49, has shot a score of films, several of them with award-winning director Wong Kar Wai who has also starred Tony Leung. She already has cosmetics, fashion and jewellery brands and owns 17 nightclubs. Words/Photo: AFP
