Richmond winemaker doubling down on Chinese market

John's analysis of the opportunity in the China market is spot-on. My company (Tulloch Vineyards) has commenced export for three leading BC wineries. Where I disagree is on lack of support from the government. Goverment and industry support for Tulloch’s efforts has been enormous, from Miles Prodan of the BC Wine Institute, Teresa Wat, BC Minister of International Trade, Ben Stewart, BC Investment and Trade Commissioner, and the entire federal Consular staff in Shanghai. They recognize that while we are representing a few wineries currently, ultimately we are building the BC Brand in China, and as export markets open up for BC wineries, this will benefit all participants.
