EMW丨Exclusive Distribution of HINE Bonneuil Range in Mainland China
EMW丨Exclusive Distribution of HINE Bonneuil Range in Mainland China

Exclusive Distribution of HINE Bonneuil Range by EMW in Mainland China


East Meets West Fine Wines, the certified high-end channel distributor of HINE Cognac, is pleased to announce the exclusive distribution of Hine Bonneuil Range within Mainland China. Spirit enthusiasts can easily purchase the amazing range by visiting HINE official online shop at or offline at recommended channels.


HINE Domaines Hine Bonneuil 2005/2006





Bonneuil is an unblended cognac from a single harvest, providing the purest and most accurate expression of the Grande Champagne’s chalky terroir. Its guiding philosophy is to remain as close as possible to the wine itself and reveal the distinct character of the soils from which the vines draw their identity. Having unveiled three vintages of Bonneuil range, HINE only produces less than 20 casks for each vintage with 450 bottles per cask. Every bottle wears unique birth code, indicating the cask it belongs to.

Having already released Bonneuil 2005 (18 casks) and Bonneuil 2006 (19 casks), Hine also unveiled Bonneuil 2008 in 2018. After a decade in oak cask, the latest Bonneuil sibling reveals aromas of cranberries, ripe apricot and mountain honey, giving a mouth-lingering taste. HINE Cognac insists on producing quality products and only releases the Bonneuil range from the outstanding vintage. 


Domaines Hine Bonneuil 2008



The color of the packaging is chosen according to the dominant tasting notes of each of these one-of-a-kind cuvées. Bonneuil 2005 boasted fig aromas with hints of purple, while the sun-soaked Bonneuil 2006 radiated a warm, vibrant yellow. This time, the flavor of cranberry, inspired the coral container for Bonneuil 2008.

As the leading agency for HINE cognacs, EMW also exclusively distributes the H by Hine series in mainland China. 


Products Exclusively Distributed by EMW:




Regular Products Distributed by EMW(including but not limited to):




Hine owns 100 hectares of vineyards in the region’s first growth, the Grande Champagne. Every year, a part of a vintage’s production is aged in the United Kingdom due to its unique ageing conditions imposing a singular aromatic profile to the cognacs. Hine is considered as one of the most delicate cognacs with the least wood influence, preserving the richness of the aromas of the eaux-de-vie. It combines elegance, finesse and lively floral notes that the Grande Champagne terroir initially imprints on the wines. Since 1962, Hine is the sole official supplier of cognac to the court of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Since then, no other cognac house has been granted with the Royal Warrant.




EMW Fine Wines specializes in leading family owned wineries from the most prominent wine regions worldwide. With the head office Shanghai founded in 2003, EMW is now exclusively distributing more than 750 labels from 15 different countries to international hotels, top restaurants, boutique wine shops, retail chains and private clienteles all over Greater China.

Piedmont/ Italy




The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century, created by Mario Vietti. Only at the beginning of the 20th century, however, did the Vietti name become a winery offering its own wines in bottle. With 35 hectares of vineyards, Vietti expects to not only increase production, but having greater control over the vineyards from a qualitative perspective.  Currado began making wine at the Vietti winery in 1960, following the death of his father-in-law Mario Vietti. Currado was one of the first Barolo winemakers to focus on single-vineyard wines. In the 1970s, Currado launched a series of artist labels that helped to redefine Barolo as a world-class appellation.

They have been steadfast to this commitment since 1972. Twomey Cellars was then established in 1999.

Since 2012, Twomey has retained world-renowned consulting winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet, the former winemaker at Château Petrus and the world’s standard-bearer for Merlot. Berrouet’s Right Bank touch is resulting in some of the finest Twomey Merlot ever, which was recognized as “One of the best California Merlot” by the Drinks Business.

John Duval




John Duval Wines is a premium wine producer located in the Barossa Valley. After 29 years as a winemaker with Penfolds, John Duval established his eponymous brand in 2003 and has created a range of wines under the family owned John Duval Wines label. Utilizing old vine Barossa fruit, the wines express the terroir of the Barossa and the hand-crafted attention of John Duval. A great thing for the Barossa is that we have the oldest vineyards in the world of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Some of the vineyards I use of Grenache and Mourvedre are over 100 years old. We have no phylloxera in the Barossa, and indeed South Australia,  so all these old vineyards are planted on their own roots.

EMW Fine Wines is delighted to announce the partnership with Casa Ferreirinha as the exclusive distributor in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.

"We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Casa Ferreirinha, which is home to the iconic Barca Velha – one of the greatest names to come from Portugal, as well as one of the rarest wines from the Douro. Casa Ferreirinha is a very good complement to our current Portuguese selection to create a strong portfolio offering for customers in Greater China."

Edouard Duval, EMW Fine Wines CEO


Casa Ferreirinha
Douro DOC, Portugal




A benchmark for Douro DOC wines

Casa Ferreirinha is the house with the greatest historical weight in the Douro, dating back to the eighteenth century founded by Bernardo Ferreira, whose formula was refined by his descendants, especially his granddaughter Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, known affectionately as "Ferreirinha".

It was in the year 1952 that the iconic Barca Velha was created, inspired by the grapes used in the production of the company’s great Vintage ports.
Casa Ferreirinha thus became the first port wine company to produce quality dry wines in the region. This was to shape in a significant way the future of Portuguese wines.

Today, Barca Velha is known as one of the greatest names to come from Portugal and Casa Ferreirinha as a whole is the undisputed leader in the Douro DOC wines category.
