Do you want to know more about the wine industry in China? Or perhaps you’ll like to understand the science behind the grapes? The Sauder Business Club of Shanghai invites you to an evening of wine discussion and tasting with Robert Bevis, President of Roque Fine Wines.
Bevis will share interesting and dynamic aspects of the international fine wine business including:
• Family owned estates vs global giants
• The wine industry in China.
• Unique challenges in production planning and logistics
• Environmental impact (global warming & water scarcity)
• Understanding wine with "It starts with the grapes"
Following the discussion, there will be a guided wine tasting where you will have the chance to try four different types of reds and whites from different grapes varieties.
Limited spots are available, so please remember to register early before spaces fill up!
