Imagine a nation with hundreds of millions of wine drinkers who have more access to spending cash than ever before and a growing taste for the finer things in life. Imagine this place has seen wine consumption increase by leaps and bounds in the past several years, and the trend shows no signs of slowing or even leveling off.

This isn't make believe, it's China. And wineries worldwide are salivating at the marketing potential.

    Yes! let's take pride in our local wines. by the way, let's keep it a secret that some wineries are not even using local grapes. They import Australian grape juice and ferment it to make the "local" wines. Cheaper than buying local grapes,that they contracted to buy, even with the cost of transport from down under. Not naming no names big G of Modesto origins. Maybe some names later.
