Record Chinese exhibitors at Vinoexpo Bordeaux

The number of Chinese exhibitors at the 2017 Vinexpo Bordeaux has increased to 22, a new record turnout, signaling the country’s fast-ascending prominence in the wine world.

New exhibitors include Ningxia Helan Mountain, representing China’s first official appellation, being developed into a multi-billion dollar wine oasis that is said to be three times the size of California’s famed Napa Valley on the border of the Gobi Desert 500 miles west of Beijing.
