Wine tasting in China: Carrefour fall wine fair in Beijing

By Jim Boyce

A last-minute reminder that the Shuangjing Carrefour store holds its fall wine fair from 6 PM to midnight with hundreds of bottles to sample. Most of them are entry-level and this offers a chance to find and stock up on “house” wine, especially as most products have a 20 percent discount.

Tip: BYOG. At the spring wine fair, I brought my own wine glasses – 22-ounce Bordeaux beauties – which meant I didn’t have to use the store’s puny goblets or, even worse, plastic cups. See these posts on previous Carrefour wine fairs:

Also, as noted here, Sequoia Cafe will hold a tasting of Grace Vineyard and Silver Heights at 6:30 PM tonight.
