China may not be the first country that comes to mind when it comes to wine production, but its importance cannot be denied. With around 450 wineries spanning the country in 12 different regions, China is the world’s sixth-largest producer of wine by volume, and it’s second only to Spain in terms of vineyard area. In this FCC Zoom event, Master of Wine Fongyee Walker, China’s foremost wine educator, will provide an overview of the current state of wine production in China and discuss what Chinese wine consumers want. She will also lead a guided tasting of four Chinese wines which are now available for sale at the club so that you can sip and swirl from the comfort of your own home while she shares her tasting notes and expert insights. Moderated by FCC President Keith Richburg.
