Join us for our first Chinese Virtual Wine Tasting on Friday 12th February and allow us to introduce you to this wonderful cultural event whilst enjoying a selection of exclusive Chinese wines.
Chinese New Year 2021 is a celebration of the Year of the Ox. In Chinese culture, the Ox is a valued animal because of its role in agriculture, and similarly in the zodiac, the Ox is seen as hardworking, positive and honest.

Rongzi Pinot Noir 2018 from Shanxi region, Central Northern China where the winemaking is overseen by the previous winemaker to Château Pétrus.
