Top Chinese wines31st January, 2014 by Lauren Eads
With today marking the start of the Chinese New Year and news breaking last week that China is now the world’s largest red wine market – we thought it was a good time to highlight some of the country’s most high-profile wines.
The Year of the Horse began today with celebrations last night marking an end to the Year of the Snake.
And there is a good chance those celebrating would have been doing so with a glass of red.
According to an IWSR survey commissioned by Vinexpo ahead of its Hong Kong fair at the end of May, Chinese red wine consumption has leapt by 136% since 2008 with 155 million nine-litre cases consumed in 2013 making it the world’s largest red wine market.
