I have recently graduated in Mandarin Chinese and am now doing some research into Wine Production in China, particularly the Penglai area in the North which is allegedly the best. I would like to find out which European/American/Australian Wine Producers might be interested in developing a vineyard in China (following in the footsteps of those French producers who got involved in Chile and Australia). Could anyone suggest any producers who might be worth contacting? Also the names of any global wine consultants (and contact details) would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello JulietHoldsworth,

Welcome to the wine board!

There are a number of large, global producers that have been seriously considering China for the past decade or so.

I know that Robert Mondavi was looking at China a few years back. I'm pretty sure that Southcorp the Australian producer was tooling around there as well at some point.

Since I have not heard or read any news of vines being planted something obviously has happened.

If you own the land I would contact some of the larger wineries (or smaller for that matter) and see if they are interested.

Dear Wineguruchgo
Thanks for getting back to me. Your comments were actually really helpful because I had also already considered contacting Robert Mondavi Winery and have been lucky enough to find a contact at Southcorp!

You're quite welcome.

Please report back if you hear of anything for this obviously is a subject that we are all interested in!
