BEIJING -- A group of expats embarked on their "Taste of Yantai" trip to Yantai, a coastal city in East China's Shandong province, over the weekend during the 12th International Terroir Wine Expo Yantai China.

Sponsored by China Daily and Yantai municipal government, the event invited expats from the United States, the UK, Peru, Italy, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Georgia to get a closer look at Yantai's wine culture.

During the two-day trip, they visited Changyu Wine Culture Museum, Yantai Changyu International Wine City and Changyu Castel Winery.

Amjad Zarin from Pakistan was impressed by the city's robust wine industry and showed his deep love for the charming coastal city.

Four out of every 10 bottles of wine in the country are produced in Yantai. The scale of the city's wine industry shocked Jeffrey Allen Stevens, a US journalist.

"This was a worthwhile trip. I did not know about Yantai and wine until now. I have gained a lot from the visit and was also impressed by Yantai's flourish wine culture," he said.

The group also had the chance to visit the wine expo, a yearly wine feast in Yantai.

As the largest wine production base in China, the city has held 11 international wine expos since 2007, enjoying widespread popularity in the industry at home and abroad.
