The Upper House Marks Its Milestone 10th Anniversary with Nyetimber

This year, The Upper House celebrates 10 years of unparalleled personalised service and understated luxury. To commemorate the occasion, Café Gray Deluxe presents a Wine Pairing Celebration Menu featuring a range of 2009 vintages to complement a specially curated four-course menu. 

In 2009, Swire Hotels opened the doors to its second House of The House Collective, with the goal to create a highly individualised small luxury hotel that would break with convention.  This has been embodied in the sophisticated and modern design reminiscent of an Asian inspired residence, and the passionate team members who continue to redefine hospitality.  

Available from 1-31 October 2019, Café Gray Deluxe will present a special four-course dinner Celebration Menu paired with a selection of wines from 2009, priced at HK$1,260 per person.  The dishes include Hokkaido Scallops, Grilled Red Snapper, or Slow Braised Veal Cheek and Chocolate Délice to finish. 

Award-winning Chef Sommelier, Leo Au has handpicked four 2009 vintages to complement the dishes on the Celebration Menu. Leo says, “2009 was not only a good year for our hotel’s opening, but also for wine. With optimal weather in Europe throughout the year, 2009 wines are one of the most opulent vintages.” 

Partnering with pioneering sparkling wine producer Nyetimber, those reserving a table for 10 people or more will also receive an exclusive preview of the world’s first Prestige Cuvee English Sparkling Wine, Nyetimber 1086 Rosé in magnum, available for the first time in Hong Kong. 

Nyetimber’s most prestigious wine, 1086 is the ultimate expression of owner Eric Heerema’s vision and his confidence in England’s ability to produce world-class sparkling wines. 1086 is made of a selection from a precious treasury of over 90 exceptional wines superbly crafted by Head Winemaker Cherie Spriggs.
