Bernice Liu, from Actress to Winemaker
Though her acting career has slowed down in the past few years, Bernice Liu (廖碧兒) shows no sign of taking a break from work. In recent years, the former beauty queen developed an interest in studying all types of wine, and currently holds a Level 3 advanced certificate from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, the world’s leading provider of wine education. Bernice also owns a boutique winery, Bellavizio, and has been producing wine since 2008.
As a member of the Hong Kong Sommelier Association, Bernice recently attended the two-day Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition, where she and members of the association tasted about 400 different types of red wine, white wine, and whiskey from all over the world.
“It’s a great feeling!” expressed Bernice when asked about tasting wine. “I only sip a little bit and feel its taste. It’s my first time savoring wine, so it’s a very good experience!”
Bernice would go to France every year to visit different vineyards and further educate herself on the field. In France, she would also meet up with various professionals in the wine industry to exchange knowledge and experiences. Though Bernice declares she is still single, she is far from being lonely.
