The fall edition of the biannual Beijing ritual known as the Carrefour Wine Fair is slated for October 14 to October 16 in the Shuangjing branch. The Friday night opening tends to be fun, with not only the chance to try free samples from among hundreds of wines (see catalog here) but also a 20 percent discount on imported bottles. As usual, I recommend you bring your own glass (BYOG) as the ones provided by Carrefour are small.
