Whether you interpret it as doubling your credit, drinking for half price or both, Pudao Wines in Shanghai and Beijing have an excellent offer the next few days. Charge your wine card from April 29 to May 1 in Shanghai or on April 29 and April 30 in Beijing (closed May 1) and Pudao Wines will double the amount. Thus, add rmb100 and get a rmb200 credit, add rmb1000 and get a rmb1000 credit, and add rmb8888 and get a rmb17,776 credit. This should justify taking that Inglenook sample up to a full glass.
Also, I stopped into the Beijing branch a few days ago and saw some bin ends for sale, including two bottles of The Stump Jump — see photo below — for rmb159 total.
