Inside the Chinese Wine Industry: The Past, Present, and Future of Wine in China by Loren Maysharkis a history as well as the current demand for wine in the country. There are a few points that must be considered when China and wine. First that China does contain 20% of the world’s population and that in itself creates a massive demand for a product. Secondly, China has had a long history of wine not only rice and plum varieties. Third, wine is the most popular alcoholic drink in the country.

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

Interesting book about the Chinese wine industry, from its beginnings in antiquity to predictions of the future, where it becomes the second leading wine market in 2020. Some good information here. To me, the most interesting part was the rather large section on counterfeit wines. Like so much else manufactured in that country, counterfeits are a nuisance, and even a danger.

Very interesting. Must reading for oenophiles.

A wildly fascinating topic. I always appreciate books that give me suggestions for new books and articles to read on a topic - the bibliography is a gem.

I work at a vineyard, so wine and wine production is an interest of mine. I love reading about the history of wine and vineyards and this book didn’t disappoint in that area.

The history of wine in China is fascinating and their business models and how that differs from other countries is really interesting.

There’s a lot to digest in this book.
