Are the content of Wine Maniac available in multi-languages ?2021-11-29T14:55:39+01:00

All the tasting notes will be produced in both English and Chinese. There may be a short time lag between the availability of the two language notes due to translation logistics and technical issues.

All regional reports and other articles will be available in Chinese, and some of them will be translated to English. In the future, we will likely translate most of the contents into English.

To avoid the risk of “lost in translation”, the English version is NOT necessarily translated word by word.
