Lecture will look at wine, China

Writer and photographer Janis Miglavs will discuss “China: The New Wine Frontier” tonight, Thursday, Oct. 30, at Linfield College. His free talk will start at 7:30 p.m., in  T.J. Day Hall, the college's former library.

His visit is part of an ongoing wine lecture series at Linfield College.

Miglavs has traveled and written about the Chinese wine industry in his book “China: The New Wine Frontier,” and in his blog, “Are We There Yet?” He was told by Chinese officials that he is the only Westerner to have visited all of China’s main wine growing regions.

Miglavs earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley and a master’s degree in fine arts from California State University at Sacramento. He spent 10 years teaching high school art and photography  before becoming a full-time photographer and writer. 

He also has published “Pacific Northwest: The Ultimate Winery Guide” and “Oregon: the Taste of Wine."
