China Wine Tours Creates a Unique Travel Experience

June 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
“Taste the Culture of 5,000 Years” —China Wine Tours is the first travel organization in the United States with a focus on this exciting new way to visit China. Travelers are introduced to the history and culture of China and to what promises to be more than just the ‘talk of the town’, it will be the talk of the world for those who want to enjoy a unique wine-travel experience. “Our tours are designed to showcase the rapidly growing wine industry in China, along with the ancient sites everyone is familiar with,” said George Aballi, CWT travel agent.

The March 2008 China Wine Tour will feature Sommelier Paolo Wakham who will lead the tour into Chinese wineries. Paolo is a member of the International Court of Master Sommeliers & the Sommeliers Society of Washington, D.C.. He has been passionate about wine, food, tradition, culture & history for decades. He teaches classes on the history & evolution of wine on a regular basis and has toured with many groups throughout the wine regions of the world. “The ‘new frontier’ of the international wine world IS China” according to Paolo. Mr. Wakham's taste buds want to blow the cellar doors off of this once forbidden land so everyone can experience the emerging world of Chinese wine.

It is worth noting that China has good capabilities for vine growing and wine making. It has a wide variety of soils, many different climates and micro-climates, indigenous and imported grapes, as well as a huge population that constitutes a tremendous potential market for wine. China has 5,000 years of history and culture that travelers already enjoy and a 2,000 year history of wine making. China Wine Tours has combined both by inviting travelers to “Taste the Culture of 5,000 Years.”

The first China Wine Tour is now available for reservations for the March 2008 journey. Details are available at or by calling George Aballi at 1-909-793-0328 ext. 311.
