Tea is undoubtedly one of the greatest Chinese exports. But did you know that wine is also an ancient and important part of Chinese culture, just like tea? Yet why is Chinese wine so little known internationally?

Join Janet Z. Wang for a delectable tasting and fascinating talk about Chinese wine & tea culture. We will cover:  

  • A brief history of Chinese wine & tea 
  • How to appreciate Chinese wine & tea
  • How have wine & tea cultures shaped Chinese philosophy and the arts in similar and different ways 
  • Why is Chinese tea so widely exported but not Chinese wine? Is that about to change and why?  

Janet is the author of The Chinese Wine Renaissance (published by Penguin Randomhouse and shortlisted for ‘the Oscars of Wine’: Louis Roederer Wine Book of the Year 2019 and overall winner of 2020 Gourmand Awards World Wine category).  She has appeared on British national radio and TV (BBC and Channel 4), TEDxSOHO speaker. She also runs wine events for corporate and social occasions, beverage sector investors, universities (Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, SOAS), China-related forums and high-profile private members clubs such as 67 Pall Mall, to introduce wines and  wine culture to experts and novices alike. She is an internationally acclaimed specialist on Chinese wine and culture, and the principal Chinese speaking member of the prestigious Circle of Wine Writers and Association of Wine Educators.
