I visited the Wine Festival from the 9th to the 12th. Most of the action takes place on September 10 and 11, with a lot of public there and wineries in full competition. The 9th saw the festival open only to exhibitors, with opening to public toward the end of the day. Many countries were represented. The Guizhou government subsidized travel expenses, paid for shipping of wine, and provided free kiosks to the exhibitors. In a “Where’s Waldo” moment, I had trouble finding the USA exhibitions. They were kind of tucked away, and not well presented. Not many USA wineries were represented, by comparison to France, Italy, Eastern Europe, and South America. Another Where’s Waldo moment was when my Argentine friend looked for his home country. Although Argentina wine is all over Guiyang, Argentina wasn’t represented at the Expo. Maybe that was a mistake . . .
