 Xige Estate's 2023 Year of the Rabbit commemorative dry red wine is crafted from a blend of old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes sourced from Xige's own vineyards, which have been aged for over 25 years. The 2019 vintage of this wine presents a more intense and powerful profile compared to the 2018 vintage. After aging for 12 months in oak barrels, this Year of the Rabbit wine has reached an alcohol content of 14.2% ABV.

This limited edition wine for the Year of the Rabbit represents an intriguing experiment by Xige Estate. Its charming and delicate color captures attention, evoking a sense of traversing through centuries and embracing the cuteness of the Jade Rabbit from the prosperous Tang Dynasty. It carries the blessing of the peony, a symbol of beauty and grace, adding a touch of elegance to the New Year's celebration. The floral and herbal scents from the flowers and plants of Ningxia's terroir resemble the enchanting aroma of the Petit Verdot grapes in full bloom. This wine embodies both the gracefulness of a noble rabbit and the essence of the Ningxia region, where the Jade Rabbit brings good fortune and blossoms of abundant flowers.

Xige Estate was established in 2017 and is one of the most exciting emerging wine projects in China. It is a brand-new, modern winery with over 1,300 hectares of vineyards, more than 1,000 hectares of which are planted with mature vines that have been growing for 20 years. This has solidified their rapid success and made them one of the leading premium wine brands in China. Xige Estate was founded by winemaker Zhang Yanzhi, who was previously a winemaker at Changyu Pioneer Wine Company. He is joined by Christelle Chene, who was born in Burgundy and previously served as the Export Sales Director in China, dedicated to promoting Ningxia wines and Chinese wines worldwide.

Xige Estate's wines have garnered international attention. Chinese President Xi Jinping choose Xige's Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot blend when meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to China in April. Prior to that, the winery had already made a mark in the international wine scene by exporting a batch of wines worth £124,000 to the UK, breaking the record for the highest-value single batch of Ningxia wine exports. In 2019, Xige Estate became the first winery in China to be awarded the internationally recognized "BRCGS Global Food Safety Standard" certification. Currently, Xige Estate products are sold in countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, as well as the regions of Hong Kong and Macau in China.
