Puchang Vineyard Saperavi 2016
Very much an oasis in the middle of the desert, Puchang – located in Turpan Valley, China’s Xinjiang province – now comprises approximately 100 hectares of vineyards which produce up to 130,000 bottles each year. Puchang was first established in 1975. In 2008, Hong Kong businessman, Mr K.K. Cheung purchased the estate, giving it a new direction as one of the first organic wine producers in China.
Puchang focuses on organic viticulture and winemaking with unwavering dedication and care under quality management. It also works with distinctive local grapes to present the taste of Xinjiang terroir. Thanks to the extreme desert climate, this land is almost entirely free of pests. Puchang is certified by ECOCERT as being organically maintained, which is an indication of its fine standard at the international level.
