liwen haoThe news was announced as part of a complete overhaul of The Wine Advocate’s website at a press conference in New York last week.

The site is currently in a beta version which will go live on 1 April and the new simplified Chinese section is set to launch in June.

It was announced at the press conference that Liwen Hao (pictured) had been hired two months ago to cover Chinese and other Asian beverages including sake and wine.

Hao will be based in Shanghai and his first articles for The Wine Advocate and robertparker.com will appear in the second quarter of the year with the launch of the Chinese site.
