3 Ways Young Chinese Consumers (i.e. Millennials) Are Really Different | Jeffrey Towson

3 Ways Young Chinese Consumers (i.e. Millennials) Are Really Different | Jeffrey Towson | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
There are approximately 200M Chinese between 15 and 24 years of age. They are about 15% of the population and have, by and large, been raised in abundance. Unlike previous generations, most have no memory of hunger or extreme hardship. They have mostly grown up in modern apartments with modern conveniences. They are a very different and pretty awesome group. Here are three ways they are different: 1. They are more brand loyal than other middle class Chinese consumers. They are also more interested in trying new products. 2. They are more emotional (in terms of buying) and less concerned with being frugal. If you are focused on up-trading consumers, this is your group. 3. They are really confident about their own financial futures. This group is super-confident and that enables spending. Basically, this is the demographic the whole world has been waiting for: emotional, confident, big- spending Chinese consumers. They are also the demographic that is most similar to consumers in

Italy's Best Sparkling Wine Is Not Prosecco

Italy's Best Sparkling Wine Is Not Prosecco | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
If I’m going to drink Italian fizz, it’s going to be good stuff, Trentodoc, the sparkling wine from the high peaks and steep valleys of Trentino in the Dolomite Mountains, part of the Italian Alps.
Grande Passione's insight:
Here is an example of the type of sloppy work from a wine writer that I find absolutely dishonest and misleading. Perhaps such amateurishness is driven by the urge for attention in this era of bait-and-click journalism? In any case, I categorically refuse to accept, from any wine writer, the lumping together underlying allusion that all Prosecco are boring and uni-dimensional. This not only shows intellectual dishonesty, but it also demonstrates the low tasting skills levels of the writer. And that is not mentioning his narrow breath of experience. Two factors that destroy completely the reliability of the rest of the article, which is a pity considering that Trento Doc wines are indeed beautiful wines. Nevertheless, a Prosecco is a very different style than a TrentoDoc wine. Both are made by completely different grapes and production methods resulting in a wine that has a completely different organoleptic profile. Each have their place on the dining table, it is only a question of sequence, and food matching. Each category has poor examples without a doubt, but each also has outstanding examples, absolutely. One may not like a particular style and that is ok. However, one can not deny that the possibility of outstanding quality Prosecco does exist. A worthy professional wine writer has the duty to put his personal preference aside and draw from experience and skills to inform with intellectual honesty and impartiality for the reader to make his own decision. Doing anything different is not only unprofessional, but certainly unfit for printing in a publication as prestigious as Forbes.

Hermes boosts production in France - CPP-LUXURY | Grande Passione | Scoop.it
Hermes is hiring workers and investing in French production to meet surging demand for handbags in Asia, boosting the economy as presidential elections highlight the country’s struggle to create jobs. The Paris-based luxury-goods company is expanding its network of domestic workshops that make bags like the Kelly and Birkin, it said Thursday in reporting quarterly sales that beat estimates. For Hermes, a “made in France” label is an intrinsic part of the appeal of its handbags, which are coveted in Asia and elsewhere as an emblem of French chic. Hermes, which [...]
