Vino in Cina | Italians working in Chinese wineries

Simone Incontro–the China rep for Veronafiere–and I have talked a lot about his fellow Italians working in China’s wine industry. Not as importers and distributors, or in bars, restaurants and hotels, but right at the country’s wineries.

Now Veronafiere / VinItaly are about to hold an online talk with two of the most prominent ones–Denise Cosentino, technical director at DBR Lafite’s Domaine de Long Dai, and Loris Tartaglia, chief winemaker at Puchang, which is considered among China’s top wineries and has a portfolio with Rkatsiteli, Saperavi, Cabernet Sauvignon, local grape Beichun and more. Italian wine critic Ian D’Agata will moderate the talk.

The talk is in Italian. Get the details here in Italian and here in English. Here’s a description of the event:

“During the webinar, you will witness a free dialogue with, Denise Cosentino, Technical Director of Domaine de Long Dai, the project in Shandong born 15 years ago from the will of the Lafite Rothschild family to diversify and expand their know-how in regions of the world with high viticultural potential and Loris Tartaglia, Chief winemaker of Puchang Vineyard, one of the best wineries in Xinjiang, born from the idea of the Hong Kong entrepreneur K.K. Cheung, with the aim of creating a new and sustainable reality that uses French, Georgian and native vines.”

“Moderator of the event will be Ian D’Agata, consultant and supervisor for Vinitaly in the aggregation of wineries, among the leading experts and among the major experts abroad of Italian wine, who during Vinitaly will take care of the narration of wines in dedicated appointments with masterclasses reserved for professionals, buyers and journalists.”
