China - Ningxia - Zhang Jing, 41, co-founder and winemaker at Helan Qingxue Vineyard, in the laboratory, tasting the latest grape juices harvested. The winery’s success has come at a significant personal price for Zhang, the mother of a 9-year-old child. “It is not easy to combine work and motherhood”, she explains. “At harvest time I have to live in the winery for four consecutive weeks and I struggle to see my daughter”.
