Château Beijing explores how the wine becomes a major cultural mediator to understand the increasing importance of links between the Chinese and French.
The film follows the evolution of three main characters- Madame Tsao, a Chinese businesswoman, Gérard Colin, a French winemaker based in China, and Jack Cheung, a young Chinese sommelier working in Hong Kong. Each of them share dreams and sometimes, misunderstandings. Their common passion for wine triggers a reflection on the challenge of sharing a sense of time and nature beyond cultural boundaries.
