China is a top 10 wine producer in the world, grows more Cabernet Sauvignon than anywhere else on the planet, and have had many a ‘Judgement of Paris’ moments – winning coveted international wine trophies since 2011.
But what does China’s fledgling wine industry hold in store for the country and the international market? Novelty? Exoticism? Quality? Value? What is its rite of passage into the major league? Will it get there and how soon?
Janet will take you on a journey through China’s vast and varied terriors, which are opening up new frontiers for winemakers and wine lovers alike. She will interweave elements of culture and history, not least China’s rich culinary and drinking customs, to bring you an unique perspective on China’s past, present and future relationship with wine, and the world.
Janet’s book The Chinese Wine Renaissance is published by Penguin Randomhouse in 2019, with a foreword by Oz Clarke, and shortlisted for the Roederer Wine Book of the Year 2019:
