So why is a Hong Kong business man building a Scottish Castle winery in ...... China?
Please don't throw blog tomatoes. But suddenly I realized I couldn't remember the exact quotes from my recorded intimate interview with that Hong Kong business man, Chris Ruffle. It's very foggy-eyed late the night before I head for St Helena for my week-long Master Wine course at the Culinary Institute of America. The Ruffle interview was long and noisy. I will get it together, I promise. Great story. Great vision. Great cost.
Treaty Port Winery was still under construction when I visited in May of 2009. The Winery/Inn will be completed just in time for our China Photo/Wine Tour in September 2010.
