The Chinese usually coin the term “red wine” as a generic name referring to all types of wine and not always red wine. Wine is classified according to its different attributes. When speaking about the color of wine, for example, it generally falls into three categories: red, white or pink (blush). We introduce some of the better-known wine-tasting venues in Wuhan to help you find the perfect place to pour yourself a glass of fine wine and enjoy the weekend with friends.
