A simplified Chinese edition of Jancis Robinson’s Wine Course has been released by Oriental Publishing with translation by wine importer and distributor ASC. According to a press release from ASC, the book took two years to complete. ASC was also involved in translating the World Atlas of Wine by Robinson and Hugh Johnson into simplified Chinese. What’s next for the China market? Perhaps the newest tome in Robinson’s lineup — American Wines — which is co-written by Linda Murphy?
