Chateau Reifent-Auzias in China (!) makes its first harvest

>> Wednesday, January 16, 2008

050120-035This autumn saw the first harvest at Chateau Reifeng-Auzias in China. The tradition in China is more towards quantity than quality, with yields reaching 150 hl/ha. At Ch Reifeng-Auzias the ambition is more focused on quality wines made from Syrah (10 ha), Cabernet Franc (10 ha), and Chardonnay (3 ha) with yields as low as 29 hl/ha. The wines will primarily be sold on the Chinese at prices between 18€ and 78€ (!) per bottle. A group of French and Chinese investors are behind the venture: Michel Behar, Dominique Auzias (editor of the very popular guide book series Petit Futé), Wu Feng and Mei Ling.
