Wine in China

>> Sunday, May 22, 2005

China Drinks, China’s main wine and spirits magazine, organised a competition in January: the 2005 Beijing International Wine & Spirits Competition. BKWine was on-site and participated in the jury for the Chinese wines and spirits. Well, today Chinese “wines” are not always made from grapes but sometimes from other fruit and berries – or rice! So it was an odd collection of beverages we were tasting and judging. Not all that easy. One Great Gold Medal was awarded to a Chinese wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the best and biggest vineyards: the Great Wall Winery. Chinese wine consumption, as the production, is rising rapidly. Pictures from China are on the site.
