Silver Heights is located on the eastern slopes of Mount Helan in Ningxia Autonomous Region. Grapes are harvested at an altitude of 1,200 metres, making it one of the highest vineyards in China. Blessed with ample sunshine and a great depth of stony soil which forces the roots of the vines to venture deep into the ground for water and minerals, the terroir is ideal for viticulture. Exquisite techniques from French oenology were employed for the wines, imparting an nfluence from the Old World.
Ningxia Silver Heights is headed by Emma Gao, holder of a Diplôme National d’Oenologue from Bordeaux (France) and one of few female Chinese winemakers in the industry. Emma honed her winemaking skills during internships with renowned estates in Bordeaux – Château Calon-Ségur and Château Lafon-Rochet.
Ningxia Silver Heights is definitely another tribute to Chinese wines of exceptional quality.
Ningxia Silver Heights Winery selections can be purchased in China at Everwines.
