A Decent Bottle of Wine in ChinaSpeaker: Chris Ruffle
When Yorkshireman Chris Ruffle decided to build a vineyard complete with a Scottish castle in the midst of the countryside in eastern China, he was expecting difficulties, but nothing on the scale he encountered. But build it he did, and the wine is now flowing. A Decent Bottle of Wine in China (Earnshaw Books) tells the unique story of an adventurer determined to make his dream come true regardless of what strange and formidable obstacles are placed in his path.
At this special RAS event for wine lovers and China enthusiasts alike, Chris will talk about the trials and tribulations of his mission, while sharing his wine with the gathering.
