Though of course the odds of someone of Yao’s height being born to his particular set of parents was orders of magnitude higher than for two random Chinese.
Note: To do the back-of-the-envelope I just used the breeder’s equation.
When China's new wealthy class began to drink imported wines, classic French regions like Bordeaux, Champagne and, more recently, Burgundy, were their early acquisitions. Yao has observed the vigorous growth of Chinese wine culture in recent years and sees potential for a greater awareness of California among drinkers.
Napa producers have worked to gain a foothold in China in recent years, but it can be a daunting market to enter. "While French wines have made quite an impression already, people are starting to discover California wines," he said.
She had served as a Red Guard during the height of the Cultural Revolution and had been an ardent Maoist.
She enthusiastically participated in the glorious plan of the local government to use her and her husband to produce a sports superstar.
The 2009 Napa Valley is a blend of 82 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. According to Hinde, Yao Family produced about 5,000 cases of the Napa Valley Cabernet and fewer than 500 cases of the Family Reserve for the 2009 vintage.

I have degrees in biology and biochemistry, a passion for genetics, history, and philosophy, and shrimp is my favorite food.
Additionally, if Yao’s mother lived through the Cultural Revolution I’m wondering if she and her husband are even at their full height assuming normal nutrition. With 2 inches per standard deviation, ~85% heritability, you’d expect any of their children to be 6 standard deviations above the population norm in height (sex corrected).
For a male that’s 6’8 (using the 5’8 figure as the median). In fact, at 7’6, he’s 5 standard deviations above the expected value. I think that that indicates that I’m being too conservative about the genetic potential of Yao’s parents, the full median height of the source population from which they derive assuming modern nutrition, and the heritability constraining to Yao’s family.
