Welcome to grapewallofchina.com, the first—as far as I know—English-language blog focused on what’s happening with Chinese wines and China’s wine market. It’s a spin-off of my first China blog—beijingboyce.com—which looks at Beijing’s nightlife. This new blog will have interviews with China wine experts and posts on winery visits, tastings I’ve organized or attended, and links to media reports on the local wine scene.
This week is a busy one, but starting next month, I’ll be posting regularly. I’ll also be upgrading the blog’s look and including some relevant material from my Beijing blog.
Finally, I’ll continue with my mission to find seven decent Chinese wines that anyone can buy for USD 100 for a home tasting. If nothing else, the research can be enjoyable.
Note: I am not a wine expert, nor gainfully employed in the wine industry in particular, or the food and beverage sector in general. I am simply a consumer interested in wine, especially China’s, and in sharing information about it
Many thanks to Sir Mark Swofford for his technical assistance in starting this blog.
