The world’s most influential women in wine

🇨🇳 China: Judy Chan

Born in Hong Kong, Judy Chan took over Shanxi-based Grace Vineyard from her father in 2002 at the tender age of 24, having left a post at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong. Since then she has turned Grace into both a globally recognised brand and a flagship for Chinese fine wine.

The 200-hectare estate produces around two million bottles a year, from flagship red blend Deep Blue to top wine Chairman’s Reserve, which is sold in luxury bars and hotels in China’s leading cities. Chan, who has become something of a celebrity entrepreneur in China, plans to develop wineries in other regions, each with their own branding.

In 2012 she received the Asian Wine Personality of the Year award from db for her work in drawing global attention to the quality of Chinese wine. Chan has taken an experimental approach at Grace, planting the likes of Riesling, Pinot Noir and Shiraz, and using screwcaps on some wines.
