Lesson Suggestion on Wine Tasting Please!


#1

Hi @Constance_Fang, @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this:

Hi everyone,

So i am studying wine at the moment and at some point will be moving to China to further my career in the wine industry… but how do you describe wine in Chinese? How would you say, this wine is bone dry or off dry, this wine has full body or this wine has flavours of a, b and c. For the flavours, do they use the literal translation of the English descriptors or would they use words that are more culturally relevant.

Thanks in advance!
