    Dear Sir or Madam

    I am working as a researcher on a short promotional video on Moutai . As you can imagine it is quite difficult to search information about such a different and distant world and to navigate contradictory information on the web with the preoccupation of divulging wrong information about such an important drink. Would you be so kind to give me information (name and contacts) about sommeliers specialized on this spirit and based in China?

    Thank you in advance for any help you may like to offer.

    Kind regards

    Donatella De Murtas
