The Chinese Wine Renaissance : A Wine Lover's Companion, Hardback Book

The Chinese Wine Renaissance : A Wine Lover's Companion Hardback

Hardback

Description

The story of wine's ancient beginnings, with a foreword by Oz Clarke. The Chinese have been making wine since the days of the Silk Road and they have a rich, yet little known wine culture.

Their now thriving wine market is entwined with thousands of years of fashion, poetry, and art, and offers a window into the country's vibrant history and legendary tales.

This well-researched book offers a taste of China through a wine journey, setting the rise of grape wine against the fascinating backdrop of Chinese culture.

In an accessible and comprehensive tone, this guide covers the relationship between Chinese philosophy and wine, the renaissance of grape wine in modern China, the different varieties of Chinese wines, how to pair them with Chinese food and explores wine etiquette and customs. As wines from China are spreading to our shores and our tables, this book is an essential companion for all wine lovers interested in exploring new flavours while expanding their cultural horizons.
