Where to buy Chinese wines in the UK – Retail Stockists

 

Happy Chinese New Year of the prosperous Pig!

The weekend before Chinese New Year saw both BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch (where I was the guest wine presenter – incidentally, I presented three wines) showcase Chinese wines on UK prime time TV to millions of intrigued viewers. It is so delightful to see such real momentum and interest in Chinese wines now making inroads in the UK! 

By popular demand, I am drawing up a list of UK retail stockists of Chinese wines. My selection is based on ease of online ordering. This is not an exhaustive list but does cover most, if not all, the Chinese wine brands available in the UK at present. Please do let me know of any additions or amendments that I should make to this list!
