WOW! x 571904371483147143
This appeared in yesterday’s Apple Daily … in a nutshell:
- Domaines Barons de Rothschild and CITIC East China (Group) Corp. Ltd. (中信華東(集團)有限公司) will set up a joint venture to establish a winery in Penglai city, Shandong province (山東省蓬萊市)
- The proposed vineyard will cover an area of over 25,000 square metres
- Given the similarity in climate between Shandong province and Bordeaux, this JV may very well produce a “Grand Cru” that is made in China
- The investment estimated to be going into this JV will be in the region of RMB 100 million!
This is crazy. GO CHINA!!!
