Interview with the General Secretary of the China National Association for Liquor and Spirits Circulation about organic wine. 对中国酒类流通协会秘书长秦书尧先生就有机葡萄酒进行的采访

Organic wine is an increasing segment in the wine production worldwide. More and more wineries are following the trend to have a lower impact on the environment. In some cases because they are convinced about the need to protect the nature for future generations, in other cases following the market demand.

在全球葡萄酒酿造领域,有机葡萄酒的酿造正在增涨。越来越多的酒庄在遵循对环境造成更低的影响这一趋势。这是因为,一方面他们确信这是为了后代而保护大自然,另一方面也是为了跟上市场的需求。

Two weeks ago, the biggest international competition for organic wine “Bioweinpreis” by PAR took place. Although 2016 was a difficult year for the organic wine producers in Europe, due to climatic conditions, the number of samples entered to the “Bioweinpreis” increased. 1094 samples from 25 countries entered the competition this year. 49 entries came from China, more than double as in 2016. This amazing growth in numbers guided us to interview Mr. Shuyao Qin, General Secretary of the China National Association for Liquor and Spirits Circulation:
