I spent this year from mid September to mid December in China. Beside my October stage with CAAS I travelled for Wine Fairs and Wine Presentations to promote the wine fro my partner wineries, which are already 5: "Salviano" from the Lago di Corbara "Scacciadiavoli" from Montefalco, "Tili' from Assisi, "Duca della Corgna" from Lago di Trasimeno and "Cantine Terribile"from Puglia.
In Chengdu we participated in the big agricultural fair of Sichuan (thanking the Italian consulate for sponsoring the booth) and in an Italy/Sichuan Investment conference organized by the "Fondazione Italia/Cina", which pursues to establish business links between Sichuan and Italy. We had the opportunity to present our wines to the management of Ruihua 199, a commercial management company, which works also in the area of alcoholic beverages. On the Chengdu Trip we were accompanied by Stefano Magini, owner and Manager of the wonderful SPAO resort in Allerona, who is looking for lucki couples who want to marry at his place.
During the entire trip my partner Wang Chun from WineSong Ltd went on tasting, tasting. Nixy (Wang Chun) has one of the finest palates I know! In any restaurant, we had dinner, we walked in with our bottles. There is people saying you cannot do Food/ Wine Pairing with Chinese Food, because on Banquet you have to many parallel dishes. Against this: there is a wine for every Chinese dish! And especially and Italian wine as Italy has such a tremendous variety of flavours. You simply need more than one wine for Chinese food feast (as it is also the case, with a more complex Western dinner. We made quite so me videos, which are available on youtube and on Chinese streaming services.(https://youtu.be/f7d6t_wzEJc
