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.

"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.
