Prosecco DOC export to China in the first 7 months of 2019 had a +31% increase in quantity according to Coldiretti. In total Italian wine export showed an encouraging +11% on the same period of last year, a clear outcome of the China-USA custom-war that reduced dramatically the Chinese import of American wines.

Not by chance Prosecco and some of its more relevant producers are the protagonists of the second edition of Zhong Can Yi Jiu - Chinese Cuisines meet Italian Wines 2020 due to be on line during this November and available in printing from the first week of December. The guide published by The I Factor in collaboration with AIS Club China (Associazione Italiana Sommelier - Italian Sommeliers Associations) will contain 100 new pairings of Italian wines to traditional and contemporary Chinese cuisine’s recipes.
A special section of the guide will be devoted to the Italian sparkling wines traditions pairing more than 40 wines to Chinese dishes
