This episode I am joined by winemaker extraordinaire Lenz Moser. He comes from an Austrian winemaking family who really changed the wine landscape for Austria. He is currently chief winemaker for Chateau Changyu Moser XV in China, and certainly putting the wine region Ningxia on the map. You will learn all about the incredible wines he is making, along with a much deeper look into the Ningxia region itself.
