  1. Pretty amazing to see the proliferation of brands into China in such a short time. It’s also pretty amazing to see the dramatic increases Coppola has been able to make in market share, some of my non wine drinker friends will pick up a bottle of Coppola before Mondavi or Gallo which would have been unheard of 10 years ago.
