After a 3 year absence from HK I will, thankfully, shortly be returning. I have been living in Europe during this time and have built up a reasonable wine collection, around 200 bottles good for drinking through the next 10 years.
Whilst I understand wine doesn't travel real well and HK's climate is not the best for wine, I would like to bring at least a reasonable quantity with me (for my personal enjoyment), say 100 bottles or so.
I have spoken to movers here who advise me I can drop in a few boxes with the furniture and my other belongings but not more than this.
Does anyone have any practical experience of bringing larger quantities of wine for personal use into Hong Kong (ie not for sale / trade)?
Does my residency status make any difference? I am a permanent resident.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
