Grape Wall has covered the China wine scene since 2007, including winery visits, local and imported wines, tastings and other events, interviews with experts, and more. It has also helped connect trade people in China to their counterparts outside the nation. The site started as a spin-off from sibling blog Beijing Boyce.
The blog organizes an annual Grape Wall Challenge, with Chinese consumers as judges, one-off events like the Bordeaux vs Ningxia Challenge the ArgenChina Wine Tour, and smaller tastings for friends and for visiting trade people. (Click here for more about the events.)
It is regularly cited in the mainstream media both in China and abroad. I have also written on China’s wine sector for publications such as Wine Business International, Wine Enthusiast, La Revue du Vin de France (China), Economist Daily News, China Daily and Wall Street Journal. (See here for a select list of coverage and publications.)
