Changli, nestling at the foot of the Yanshan Mountain, is located 39 degrees north latitude, the same as Bordeaux in France. With adequate sunshine, and large temperature differences between day and night, it is very suitable for growing grapes, thus winning the title, "Bordeaux in China".

Changli in the city of Qinhuangdao has a history of planting grapes and brewing wines for more than 400 years. The output of its vintages accounts for one third of the gross output in China, and its export volume tops the country, selling to over 20 countries and regions, such as Britain, France, Germany and the USA.
