My first ‘Made in China’ column in The Beijinger magazine covered where to get decent Chinese wine in retail. This second one looks at bars, restaurants and hotels. You know, in case you desperately need to get out of the house and guzzle a bottle or two of Silver Heights.

The column covers seven wineries, over more than a dozen venues, some by-the-glass options and bottles that range in price from rmb140 to rmb3000. (By the way, that price at Mokihi should be rmb180.)

Also, I’ll soon have a write-up on the recent Chinese wine tasting at Capital M, and where to get those wines, too.

For those who simply want to know the places mentioned, they are: Temple Restaurant Beijing, Grill 79, Atmosphere, Maison Boulud, China Grill, Little Saigon, Flamme, Scarlett, Mokihi, Punjabi, Chez Julien, Duck de Chine, Morton’s Steakhouse and Raffles. Try hitting them all in one night.

And the wineries covered: 1421, Silver Heights, Great River Hill, Helan Qing Xue, Sunshine Valley, Grace Vineyard and Hansen.
