People do buy wine and its status symbol is undeniable, but the current state of the wine market is full of pitfalls that prevent a large, dynamic group of consumers from forming a dedicated base. Here we look at 10 changes that could be made to improve customer appreciation of wine in China.

    Fine article about habits and traditions. How often do you see people drinking wine in China? is it really possible that consumption has reached 1L per capita? Or the statistics refer only to imports of wine, which no one knows whether it was sold? is wine consumption going to rise as much as press says?
