Quenching Chinese thirst for wine

As more people acquire taste for the drink, producers are eyeing the burgeoning market.

    China's thirst for wine is growing at a rapid rate and some researchers believe the market will overtake North America's within the next two years.

    Overseas producers are trying to take advantage of China's new-found taste for 'the finer drinks in life' and quench its demand, but local vineyards are also gearing up to be part of the action.
