KY, a life expert, is a wine collector and is quite knowledgeable about wine. He said the main reason for the epidemic to give birth to the wine lovers is that people stay at home and can"t go to restaurants or bars to drink wine, so there are more opportunities to appreciate and drink wine at home, and proper drinking can also reduce stress. At the same time wine manufacturers and merchants also do a lot of promotions, such as the 2019 Bordeaux wine futures because of the epidemic price reduction of 30%, so the price is very attractive. In addition, some merchant wineries are also doing promotions to reduce the backlog. Many reasons have led to a higher interest in wine among Chinese, and people are willing to try wines that they have not tried before.

Kenny, a Chinese, came here specifically to buy a herbal nettle wine. He said that after the epidemic, his interest in wine has increased dramatically, and he used to drink wine at most, but now he is drinking a wider range of wines. A few days ago, he drank a very fragrant wine and thought it was very good. Only after inquiring did he find out that it was European nettle wine, but he couldn't even buy it near his home, so he had to drive to Long Beach to buy it.

Compared to other alcoholic beverages, beer is more popular.
