Co-Moderator – Bella Ma:
IWA VIA HK 2022
Having spent her teenage years near the town of Moutai, Bella witnessed the power of Baijiu, fermented Sorghum juice, that brings people together. Her curiosity led her in her adolescence to wines, an exotic fermented grape juice. Having acquired experiences in Michelin starred restaurants in San Sebastián and HK, Bella fell deeply in love with Italian wines during a long and enlightening trip in 2021 against all the HK travel restrictions. Time spent at Contra Soarda with Eleonora was one of her defining moments.
Currently, preparing the Italian wine experts exams, Bella manages a collective of wine businesses in HK that join forces to introduce the finest Italian growers into the market.
