Chinese team learns about wine tourism
Seventeen Chinese visitors, from the province of Ningxia, are in Marlborough on a two-day visit to learn about wine tourism. The delegation, led by Ningxia bureau of development of grape and floral industry director Kailong Cao, arrived in Blenheim on Tuesday morning. The group of government representatives and industry leaders from Ningxia are visiting New Zealand and Australia to learn how leading wine regions approach wine tourism. They hope to learn a lot from their visit to Marlborough and take the knowledge back to Ningxia, in the north of China, where China’s wine industry is based.
