Shandong is slated to hold its second Yantai International Wine Festival from September 23 to 30. The first three days include “The International Wine Arts & Package Designs Contest“, “Changyu Business Get-Together for Distributors”, and “Wine-Tasting and Appreciation” during the first few days. Other itinerary items include the “Junding Grape-Picking Festival” and the “The 2nd Session for World Famous Chateaus (China) Club” (I would love to see the criteria for joining that club).
It appears the bulk of the events will be held at Yantai International Expo Center, Changyu Wine Cultural Museum, and COFCO Nava Valley Chateau Junding (no misprint: it’s “Nava” with a “v”). The sponsors are The International Organisation of Vine and Wine (O.I.V), China Alcoholic Drinks Industry Association, China National Association For Liquor Circulation, and Shandong Provincial Government.
