ENCORE! Italian Taiwanese Wine Dinner at Tchin Tchin
Another amazing pairing between Italian wines and Taiwanese cuisine...
28 September 2021
Another fabulous wine dinner at Tchin Tchin! The Taiwanese cuisine, from squid balls to pork sausage, so as the 90 days dry-aged Rubia T-bone steak, was amazing when paired with our proudly selected Italian wines from North to South of Italy! Our guests could compare 2 Rose Sparkling Wines from Italy to kick start our wine journey, then 2 Friulano white wines from Friuli to experience the uniqueness of the grape variety Friulano! To enjoy the Taiwanese snack platter and T-bone steak, our guests could pair them with an aromatic and concentrated Primitivo wine, or with full-bodied, impressive Cabernet – Sangiovese blend from Tuscany!
The sublime atmosphere of Tchin Tchin, delicious cuisine, and enchanting Italian wines, have combined together to bring an amazing experience for our guests!

When Italian Wines Meet Taiwanese Cuisine...
10 August 2021
A night with many welcoming surprises: additional wines from the friendly and passionate owner, amazingly cooked food, cheese and cake, so as a "wrong" wine (when you mixed up BOLLE Rose with BOLLE Bianco...but both are still so marvellous!)
A small cosy dinner was successfully held, and we are sure both the wines and dishes paired greatly together, with different styles to be tasted and admired!
