Thanks to a blossoming middle class with expendable income and a preference for California wines, Lodi appellation vintners are starting to cash in on China. The interest is so strong that the owner of one Linden winery is even considering selling his vineyard to Chinese investors.

"I'm looking to retire, and I'd say that the offers I'm getting — 5-to-1 — are from Chinese investors," said Dave Pechan, owner of Miramont Estate Vineyards. "The Chinese government is providing financing to help investors buy these places. They want Chinese investments in food processing and food-providing companies around the world."
