The Chinese Wine Renaissance

A Wine Lover's Companion




A well-researched and comprehensive look at the culture of Chinese wines, for readers of Wine Folly and The 24-Hour Wine Expert

The rise and rise of Chinese wines, with a foreword by Oz Clarke.

The Chinese have been making wines since the days of the Silk Road and they have a rich, yet little known wine culture. While in the past it was largely grain wine that was consumed, China's grape wine market is worth around $18 billion a year. It produces over one billion litres annually, making it one of the largest wine producers and consumers in the world.

This well-researched book presents the past, the present and future of Chinese wines, set against the fascinating backdrop of Chinese culture. In an accessible and comprehensive tone, this guide covers the relationship between Chinese philosophy and wine, the rise of grape wine in modern China, the different varieties of Chinese wines, how to pair them with Chinese food and explores wine etiquette and customs.

As wines from China are spreading to our shores and our tables, this book is an essential companion for all wine lovers interested in exploring new flavours while expanding their cultural horizons.
