Hong Kong Wine Fair Is Nov. 5-7
 
08.28.2015
 
International event for trade buyers provides entry point to Asia
 

Hong Kong—North American vintners will have the opportunity to meet potential buyers and get a sense of the fast-changing Asian market for wine at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair Nov. 5-7. The eighth edition of the fair, a tasting and sourcing platform for wine enthusiasts and traders, is expected to attract more than 1,000 exhibitors from around the world.

Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, the fair in 2014 attracted nearly 20,000 trade buyers from 75 countries and regions, and as many as 30,000 public visitors in a day. The Hong Kong location is advantageous due to the city’s dual status as a large and fast-growing wine market in its own right, and as a gateway to mainland China, which is rapidly developing a middle class with a taste for international wines.

Smoky Washington Wine Grape Harvest
 
08.27.2015
 
No major damage to vineyards, conditions offer glimpse of hot and dry future
 

Yakima, Wash.—Wildfires in northern Washington have made 2015 the worst fire year in the state’s history, with more than 925,000 acres ablaze. More than 260,000 acres are burning in the Okanogan complex alone, while crews work to contain the flames. In the above photo, the smoke hangs thick over Red Willow Vineyard in the Yakima Valley AVA. 

Smoke and ash have blanketed many parts of the state from time to time as weather systems carry plumes from the fires to the Puget Sound AVA in the west and grape-growing areas in the south of the state. Perhaps nowhere has been hit harder than the Lake Chelan AVA, where the Chelan fire complex covers more than 90,000 acres and remains just 47% contained. Ten days ago, the fire triggered extensive evacuations at the south end of Lake Chelan and destroyed Ventimiglia Cellars.
