Do They Have Merlot in China?

Apparently so:

Cheers to China's wine industry
In 2005, China produced a total of 434,000 tons of wine, 25.2% more than in 2004, said the report. Wine exports generated 106 million yuan of revenues, up 37.5% over the previous year.

Thanks to changes in their diet habits, Chinese people would consume more wine this year, bringing the wine industry a bright future, said the report. Statistics show that there are more than 100 wineries in China, among which Dynasty Winery (Remy-Martin) is by far the most successful. The immense potential of the country's wine market, with 1.3 billion people, has led foreign investors to set up joint ventures in China, such as Dynasty and Great Wall Wineries.


Apologies to Mary-Mia and Rod for the obvious play on the name of their blog.
