In addition to this, wine-on-tap will also become more popular.

“Wine on tap will rise as the next contentious point of fierce debate: more efficient, environmentally friendly and making higher end options more affordable, draft wine has the potential to revolutionise on-trade rituals while raising accessibility levels.”

The wine on-tap trend has surged in London over the past decade, and bar groups such as Vagabond provide self-service taps which allow drinkers to pour their own measures and experience as many varieties as possible. The tap concept brings a degree of adventure and experience to your average trip to the bar.

    BurNarj , my suggestion for a new trend, -very tasty ,unique, made from natural Andalusian oranges . Its the only combination in the world of natural oranges in sparkling wine produced using patented method similar to traditional method used for champagne production.
    I don’t want to describe the pleasure of discovering unknown, new dimension of world – oranges , but believe me Burnarj its a great option.

    Sorry, but based on my tasting, China is not ready for prime time yet. I’ve had offerings from both Changyu and Great Wall and they are not ready to take off internationally. Grace Vineyards could break out. On a recent (non-wine) work trip to China I stopped in a wine shop full of French, Italian, Australian, Chilean wines and asked for a Chinese wine. The clerk said almost under his breath: “Chinese wines are not very good, we drink these” pointing to the traditional wine producers on the shelf.
