Grape Wall of China will soon begin including contributions from people involved in the Greater China wine scene as academics, winemakers, distributors, educators or consumers. To kick things off, I will post a profile each day. (For more China wine info, join the 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.)
