A PRIVATE WINE CELLAR
Hidden Dragon has a state of the art glass-fronted wine cellar boasting a magnificent privately-owned collection of fine wines for guests to enjoy. There is an emphasis on the great chateaux from France’s Bordeaux and Burgundy regions. However, there is a wide variety of wines from both the old and new world, in a variety of colours and a variety of sizes, to delight the most discerning oenophile’s palate.
Although a delicious selection of complimentary wines will be offered nightly throughout the week, guests are also welcome and encouraged to handpick alternative bottles to accompany their evening feasts.
The medical profession has recognized the healthful and nutritive properties of wine for thousands of years. Hippocrates recommended specific wines to purge fever, disinfect and dress wounds, as diuretics, or for nutritional supplements, around 450 B.C! Modern evidence advocates moderate consumption of red wine on a regular basis as a preventative against coronary disease due to the presence of anti-oxident flavenoids in tannins, and resveratrol and quercetin in grapes.
"Wine is the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages." Louis Pasteur
