Janet Z Wang is the author of The Chinese Wine Renaissance and contributor to Decanter China. She has also consulted on wine-related start-up ideas.
Janet spent her formative years in China before immigrating to the UK as a teenager. From her education in Chinese history and classics since an early age, she noted that wine’s social effects on humanity were profound and continuous. After graduating from Cambridge – where she received a constructive introduction to wine, served at formal hall dinners – Janet pursued a career in commodities trading in London, and her education and love for wine continued as her work and social life crossed paths with wine producers, merchants and educators.
Learning from wine professionals as well as drawing from her own cross-cultural perspectives ignited an interest in bringing Chinese and Western audiences closer through the language of wine.
We welcome Janet to the Circle and look forward to publishing her news and features in the future!
