Just a heads up to readers to expect some changes to this blog in the next month or so. Rather than having one writer (that would be me), grapewallofchina will soon have ten people in the wine industry – whether as makers, distributors, educators, writers or consumers – as contributors. This will give a more comprehensive view of what is going on here in the Middle Kingdom, and, to say the least, a lot is going on.
For those living in Beijing, I’m also working on creating some special wine packages. Say, for example, you want to try some Chinese wines and don’t know where to start. I’ll aim to put together a half-dozen or dozen bottles that you can have delivered to your home – and hopefully with a decent discount.
I am also hoping to put out a regular newsletter on wine in China and am toying, for the long run, with the idea of including bilingual posts (Mandarin / English) and chat rooms.
That’s a lot of stuff, but it’ll be a step-by-step process, starting with having more voices here and with trying to get wines at good prices into the hands of wine lovers out there.
Stay tuned for more on these projects in the next few weeks.
