Chinese Wine and Wine Culture

Our friend Bertrand Celce who is a freelance photographer and writer maintains a wine blog about French wines and wine tasting in France. Lucky for me it's in (quite good) English. Bert recently returned from a trip to Shanghai and has written a couple of entries about Chinese wine and the burgeoning wine culture there, as well as his experiences in some wine bars in Shanghai. They are both an interesting peek into how the Chinese are engaging the wine world.

Alder,

Thanks for the pointer...

I'm actually headed to India (Delhi and Bombay) next week for 15 days and will be doing my best to engage the Indian wine culture. I'll be posting a preview on my blog soon!
