The Hong Kong Team
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Stephen graduated with a degree in Marketing and Economics and in 2010 obtained an MBA and went on to to begin his career in sales and marketing gaining work experience in the US, HK and mainland China. Having developed a keen interest in wine, Stephen joined Farr Vintners in 2013 having passed his WSET level 3 with distinction and in 2016 he successfully obtained a WSET level 4 diploma. As well as being a keen wine enthusiast, enjoying a wide range of wines from around the world, he is also an avid amateur photographer and loves nothing more than to hone his photographic skills whilst visiting wineries and vineyards around the world on his travels.
Before joining Farr Vintners in March 2016, Dorvis travelled throughout Europe to experience the local culture and taste the wines. Her hands-on winery experience of viticulture, winemaking and wine marketing in Mosel and Rheingau ignited her interest in wine and led her into a career in the Wine Trade. Having graduated with a degree in English and a Masters in Marketing Management, she has gained marketing and event management experience over recent years. Obtaining the WSET level 3 diploma opened the door for her to become a wine professional. Dorvis enjoys all kinds of wines, although she has a weakness for Red Burgundy and German Rieslings. Outside of wine, you may find her rock climbing or hiking at weekends. She also likes art and dancing. She is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English and speaks some German.
Jo started her career in the UK wine trade back in 1989 and moved to Hong Kong in 1994 when Asia’s interest in wine was just starting. After setting up a wine shop in Hong Kong (one of only 4 retail companies at the time) Jo joined Farr Vintners in 1997 to set up the Hong Kong office - the first of its kind. Initially focusing in Hong Kong, the company’s office soon expanded its operations not only to assisting traders, keen new wine collectors and drinkers, but also in developing new business across Asia. To be a part of the emerging wine market in Asia over this period has been an amazing experience, one that Jo looks forward to continuing in future years.
