Champagne is a growing category around the world, but do we see the same trend in China? In this episode we explore the current situation of Champagne with Edouard Duval, CEO of East Meets West Fine Wines. Part of the Duval-Leroy Champagne House, Edouard shares some of his experiences and thoughts about the Champagne industry and the ever-changing role of the importer/distributor model in China.
After 15 years of running a successful beverage distribution business in China, Edouard joins us to discuss how it all got started. EMW is one of the leading fine wine distributors in China focused on family owned wineries. They represent over 80 brands with some of the world's top producers such as Vietti, Silver Oak, Emilio Moro, Paul Jaboulet Aine and so many more. With years of experience developing top brands in China, we look forward to sharing Edouard's insights with you in today's podcast!
