Grace Vineyard Tasting Night
The Chinese certainly know a thing or two about producing alcoholic beverages having dabbled with the 'happy stuff' for several centuries or more, but in recent years, an increasing number of Chinese Wine Connoisseurs have turned their attention to producing western world wines that rival the best 'old world' offerings from Europe; their products have put China on the world map and have sealed the country's intent of positioning itself as a serious producer of world class wines.
Founded in 1997, Grace Vineyard was the brainchild of Mr.CK Chan and legendary Bordeaux Oenologist Monsieur Denis Boubals. Together, they selected 60 hectares of prime land (just South of the Shanxi province) for its excellent terrain and favorable provincial weather conditions. It was on this land that the greatest wine producer in China was born.
Using only the finest low yield Bordeaux grape varieties, the wines are aged in American and French oak and released only after final bottle fining. The result is smooth, sophisticated and undeniably high quality.
Today, Grace Vineyard is global acknowledged by the wine fraternity's international media, including renowned wine writers like Jancis Robinson, Robert Parker and specialized wine publications such as Wine Spectator. The Vineyard is managed under the watchful eye of Madam Judy Leissner (Mr. CK Chan's daughter) and continues to wow the world with spectacular wines that are proudly Chinese yet unquestionably world class in every aspect.
It was a great event! Thank you all for your participation!
