Chinese wine – level 1

05-11-2021 15:00

Chinese wine is becoming popular. Many Chinese people drink it. They say that Chinese red wine is as good as wine from Spain or France.

In the past, the situation is different. Chinese wine is not good. Chinese winemakers use old technologies. The grapes are not very good, also.

Ian Dai is 33 years old. He is a winemaker. His winery is near Mongolia. Very good grapes grow there.

Dai uses natural fermentation. The process changes sugar into alcohol. Dai believes that wine tastes better when the process is from nature. His business is successful.

Now people change their ideas about Chinese wine. Chinese winemakers want to make the best wine. It seems that it will happen.

Difficult words: technology (the machines and ways that people make something), winery (a factory where people make wine), natural fermentation (a process from nature to help something change and taste better).
