Culture

Jessie Voigts presents China’s Surprising Wine Country posted at Wandering Educators, saying, “In China, meals have always represented not only sustenance through food and drink, but a social, cultural, and even spiritual tradition. Which is why I jumped at the chance to visit the country, to explore traditional and modern cuisines as well as vineyards and winemakers.”
