JANET WANG WINE ACADEMY LAUNCHES AT LU BAN LIVERPOOL

One of the UK’s foremost Chinese wine experts – Janet Wang – is spearheading an exciting new wine academy at Lu Ban Liverpool.

Lu Ban Restaurant will be home to the Janet Wang Wine Academy.

Janet, author of ‘The Chinese Wine Renaissance’ – nominated for the coveted Louis Roederer Wine Book of the Year – has established herself as an expert of Chinese wine and was admitted to the prestigious Circle of Wine Writers last year.

She is bringing her expertise by advising on the restaurant’s wine selections as well as hosting a series of exclusive events at the restaurant.

The 36-year-old author and contributor to professional wine publications including Decanter China and Meininger’s Wine Business International, said: “I am excited to collaborate with Lu Ban – which offers a brand new and innovative approach to showcase the incredible richness of Chinese culinary and wine culture.

“Through the Academy events we will also bring about a rounded narrative of wine culture to include the little discussed, yet hugely exciting, Chinese and Asian wine category.”

Mike Mounfield, director of Lu Ban Liverpool said: “Janet will host a series of exclusive day-long events commencing in early December in the restaurant’s dedicated wine room, where she will bring to life personally selected wines from across the world, including Chinese wines.”

The first series of Janet Wang Wine Academy courses will be held on December 4th, 5th and 6th, with the second scheduled for January 2020.

As well as these courses, the Restaurant will be hosting special ‘Wine dinners with Janet Wang with selected winemakers, producers and suppliers’ events on Thursday December 5th where she will share her expertise with diners. Guests can join Janet and sample incredible wines and exquisite food in a Lu Ban private dining room.
