Ningxia, a rising star of world's wine map
YINCHUAN, China, March 26, 2020 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region harvested 22 Gold, the most awarded wine 
region in China, on the Berliner Wein Trophy held on March 9, according to the 
Administrative Committee of Grape Industry Zone of Helan Mountain's East 
Foothill Wine Region in Ningxia. As a rising wine region star, Ningxia has won 
over 700 International Awards in recent years. 

Thanks to the special terroir featuring long-time duration, sierozem, low 
precipitation, etc., the eastern foothills of the Helan Mountains in Ningxia, 
often referred to as Chinese Bordeaux, is widely recognized as one of the 
world's best place for wine grape planting and superb wine making. 

Currently, with 38,000 hectares of wine grape-planting area and the output of 
around 120 million bottles of wine annually, Ningxia has become the largest 
concentrated and contiguous producing area in China. 

Ningxia is the first chateau wine region in China and attracts many investors 
from China and abroad. By the end of 2019, 92 wineries have been built and 119 
are still under construction. Ningxia wine has been exported to over 20 
countries and regions, including France, Canada, Australian, etc. 

Ningxia became the first Chinese province-level observer in the International 
Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) in 2012 and was included in The World Atlas 
of Wine in 2013.

Just as Jancis Robinson, Master of wine, has praised: "There is no doubt that 
the future of China's wine is in Ningxia."
