Grape Wall of China will soon begin including contributions from ten people involved in the Greater China wine scene as academics, wine-makers, distributors, educators or consumers. To kick things off, I will post a profile each day. (For more China wine info, join theÂ Grape Wall of China group on Facebook and/or sign up for my free e-newsletter by emailing email@example.com with “sign me up” in the subject line.)
Today’s profile: Campbell Thompson
Main focus: Chinese consumers
“Campbell Thompson grew up in South Australia, close to Coonawarra – one of Australia’s most respected wine regions. Campbell has lived and worked in Beijing for close to 10 years, and worked for China’s largest wine importer for more than four years. He’s completing a Masters degree in Wine Marketing (yes, there is such a thing), and is a big fan of red Burgundy, good Riesling and Coonawarra Cabernets (though not all at once).”
