Grace Vineyard

Grace Vineyard is located in Taigu Country, 40km south of Shanxi province capital, Taiyuan, and one of a handful of thriving wineries in North China.  

Along with his close friend, famous Bordeaux oenologist Denis Boubals, Mr.CK Chan from Hong Kong established Grace Vineyard in 1997. The site selection was seriously analyzed and the present base was determined due to its superior growing conditions for viticulture: ample sunshine, low humanity and rainfall, large temperature difference between day and night, and good sandy silt mixed with a bit of clay.
