Beijing's first 'Beers for Books' is this Sunday at Brussels Bar & Restaurant to raise funds for Library Project. Kid-friendly fare in the afternoon, more adult-oriented stuff at night. Full schedule of movies, live music (Beijing Beatles) and boat races, plus beer, bubbly and event-themed food menus, at the link. Hope to see you there!

Want China wine news?

I started a free e-newsletter over the Chinese New Year holidays. (I needed a break from guzzling dumplings and wine.)

The newsletter covers local and imported wines, consumer events, talks with industry leaders, winery visits, market stats, and more, with summaries from my Grape Wall of China blog.

It is called GWoC Talk (Grape Wall of China Talk) and I aim (hope!) to send it out every two to four weeks.

No worries, I don't plan to add everyone in my database to the mailing list. It will be opt in: you can get it by contacting me directly or signing up beneath the top banner at the Grape Wall of China blog. See link below for a sample newsletter -- it needs some fine-tuning but that's nothing a few nights and a few bottles of decent wine can't help with.

Talk about bad timing, the Ningxia region in China saw its fortunes rise this year and then got hit with a poor harvest. The question is how will it respond to this situation...

From a call for winemakers in mid-July to seven of them from five continents standing at the base of Ningxia's Helan Mountains earlier this week. Things happen fast here...

The region of Ningxia in northwest China will fund 10 winemakers to visit this fall as part of the Ningxia Wine Challenge. They will join the harvest, and make one red and one white wine, with the best ones earning prizes totaling RMB200,000 (USD31,000 / EUR26,000). I'm helping to get the word out. For more details on the challenge, and how to apply (deadline is July 27), check the link below.
