Chateau Lafite Rothschild, a France-based wine estate, in partnership with CITIC East China (Group), has started construction of a winery at Penglai in Shandong province of China to catch up with the increasing demand for premium wine in the nation.
The new winery is expected to produce 120,000 bottles of wine each year. For a decade and a half, the company has conducted research on the ideal quality grape-planting area in Asia and has selected Penglai.
