It’s exciting times for Lani Wines at the moment. We are setting up a tasting room and shop in Yuhang. And having the retail space will also enable us to list on local delivery apps like Meituan and E-le-ma.

Moving house led to us discovering a gem of a commercial property around the corner from our new apartment.

After having a quick look inside, Jess and I both agreed that the double shop with an internal connecting door would make a great first retail space for us, and with room to expand.

We’re in the process of moving our office from Xihu district and setting up the shop. Last Friday, although still a bit of a mess, we had a few friends over to celebrate.

The official opening will be in a couple of weeks when we organize our first wine tasting.
